It is my pleasure to introduce a fabulous new addition to the I Want To Be A Roitfeld team — contributing editor Jessica Eritou! Jessica considers Carine Roitfeld to be a major inspiration and influence in her life and I look forward to her sharing her passion on these pages. I hope you will all join me in welcoming Jessica!
Transferring from Carleton University with their own Art History program, Jessica enrolled at the University of Ottawa to study Communication and Philosophy but found her heart and passion was still in writing as she is completing her Communication degree.
Throughout her university studies, Jessica has primarily worked with labels such as; Burberry, Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Ermenegildo Zegna, and Tom Ford.
She considers Tim Blanks, Cathy Horyn, and Vanessa Friedman major influences to her editorial writing. Having worked in fashion for nine years now, her experience in high-end fashion and styling will add a dimension from a hands-on fashion perspective to IWTBAR.
Jessica loves the effortless wearability of Stella McCartney and the finer minimalist details of Celine. Even though she is surrounded by high-end fashion, on her days off you can find her in a slouchy tee and skinny jeans.
Having studied with the Ottawa School of Art, Jessica developed her strength in visual arts, specifically in painting. She is an enthusiast and collector of contemporary modern art.
Jessica was appointed Arts & Culture Editor in the 2014-2015 publishing year for the University of Ottawa's independent paper The Fulcrum.
She is also currently studying Fashion Journalism at the London College of Fashion with their short course program.
