Style Profile: Texture, patterns drive MSUM student’s style

MOORHEAD - Artist Anna Mladnick’s creative energy seeps into her personal style.

The Minnesota State University Moorhead senior has a huge shoe collection and enjoys “sparkly things” but also has a passion for helping others. Next fall, she’ll teach English in Vietnam.

I spotted Mladnick in Moorhead wearing an earthy, texture-driven ensemble.

Describe your style. Eclectic.

What are you wearing today? My boots and jacket are from Macy’s, Target sweater and a thrifted skirt.

Who or what inspires your style? My mom. She still sometimes picks out my clothes for me. I also like texture and pattern in clothing.

I like to read Nylon magazine, too.

Who are some of your style icons? Locally, Amber Parsons at Midwest Mud (an art co-op that is focused on connecting local artists with their community).

What are you favorite locally owned shops? Unglued, Zandbroz, ecce art + yoga and the Rourke Gallery house.

What’s your favorite fashion-related thing in your closet? My wedding ring is a bent key from Etsy. That’s something I wouldn’t want to give up.

What city has inspirational fashion? New York City because it’s eclectic. I love visiting Chinatown there, and I really love all the boroughs.

What do you hope to be doing in five years? My long-term goal in life is to start an art and outdoors-centered camp for kids and adults.
