behind the bwab


I'm Amanda Kaplan,  a 21-year-old fashion journalist and blogger.

My writing revolves around personal style for the wild-hearted, fashion month and runway reviews, beauty and wellness, and sustainable and ethical fashion. While my interests may vary, my blog is an outlet for expressing my passions in written form through well-researched content and captivating imagery.

I call the Midwest my humble abode, and I'm currently studying Journalism and Fashion Business at Columbia College in Downtown Chicago.  I hope my writing teaches my readers how to "stay fashionably confident" in an industry that is convoluted and lacking from self-love.

On BWAB, you'll find blog posts along with my professional journalistic work. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, are interested in collaborating, or if you just want to send me a note or say "hello."

with love & light, Amanda
