By the time she was old enough to be drawn to the aesthetics of fashion apparel, she knew the mall was her second home. Her earliest memories came from being pushed in her stroller through the array of window displays, fabrics and people.
This environment intrigued her young mind. She even gave her best efforts in dressing herself fashion-forward; although this may have included mis-matched socks, crazy patterns, and vibrant colors, it was the start to a life-long journey. Since then, Sydnie has studied at South Dakota State University and obtained her degree in apparel merchandising and minors in dance and business in 2014. The most notable experience through her college journey was interning for Project Runway famed designer, Christopher Straub in the Minneapolis area the summer of 2013. She learned so many ins and outs of garment construction, that it made shopping even more of an analytical process. She, herself was also able to learn how to do further clothing construction, creating patterns, sketching designs, and all in all, growing in her confidence. Moving to the Minneapolis in 2015, she began styling for À la Mode, as well as becoming the brains (and writer) behind most all of À La Mode's social media and blog.
