Aspiring fashion writer Kayla Boyd is rewarded for her longtime passion for style with an invitation to attend the New York Fashion Week.

When I was eight years old, I liked collecting weird things: rubber bracelets, skater shoes and basketball jerseys. But, I can still remember the moment that fashion truly became an interest to me.

I was in sixth grade, and it all started with a new shirt and hairstyle for picture day. This was one of the first times that I can recall straightening my massively frizzy, long hair (with an actual clothing iron on an ironing board). In addition to the hair, my mom took me to the mall and bought me a long-sleeve Southpole shirt that was black and tan with a gaudy design on the front.

Social media filled with responses to Marc Jacobs' use of dreadlocks in his New York Fashion Week runway show.

This past week, Marc Jacobs closed spring 2017 New York Fashion Week. The designs were beautiful, the staging was gorgeous and the hair was...pretty controversial.

When the cast of supermodels (including Kendall Jenner, the Hadid sisters, Karlie Kloss, Adrianna Lima and more) stepped out with heads full of pastel-colored dreadlocks, the debate began as whether or not this was cultural appropriation.

So let's break it down: Cultural appropriation is the adoption or use of elements of one culture by members of another culture.

Missed fashion week? No worries. Here's the recap from the 2014 Spring collection here and find out what you should be wearing when the snow finally melts.

Another fashion week has come and gone and as always it has left us with a vice grip on our credit card, and fingers hovering over the purchase button. 

Flashback: 2013 brought us lethal yet fashionable spikes, high-waisted EVERYTHING, the dressy but casual button down, the return of the maxi dress and the revitalization of denim. 

If you thought all of that awesome, you are going to love everything that 2014 has to offer and be crazy-ready for spring, just like us.
