Student and Successful Stylist Receives
Northeast Alabama Community College student and successful
stylist, Hannah Riley Henderson, has been receiving exciting
attention locally, nationally, and globally because of her
fashion blog Styles by Hannah Riles.
Henderson, a fashion merchandizing major at Northeast, stated,
“I post various photos and information on outfits I have styled.
I have been lucky enough to collaborate and style for multiple
clothing companies around the world. I am also very fortunate to
have made really incredible contacts with people in the fashion
industry through my blog.”
Additionally, Henderson has had the incredible opportunity of
working with Teen Vogue Magazine on five different
occasions so far in her career. Her fashion blog can be viewed
Henderson was chosen to video a Teen
Vogue Outfit of the Day while at a fashion workshop in New
York. That video can be seen at
http://youtu.be/EDpfl1LTSTQ. She describes her style as a
Bohemian look with personality and charm—and with a little bit
of an edge.
Since she was very young, Henderson has known that fashion would
play a big part in her future and can’t remember when it was not
important to her. She also knew that Northeast would be the best
place after high school to work toward that future. Upon
deciding her field of study, her love of fashion was definitely
the key factor in choosing to major in fashion merchandizing.
“I chose Northeast as the first step in my college experience
because of the quality of education and the local convenience,”
she said. “Also, Northeast has been very generous in providing
multiple scholarship opportunities. My experience at Northeast
has been absolutely great. I have enjoyed all of the teachers
whose classes I have taken thus far.”
Henderson credits Northeast with paving the way for a very
smooth transition from high school to college. “NACC is very
special in that it allows its students to continue to experience
class sizes similar to those in high school. Furthermore, I
believe NACC adequately prepares those students planning to
further their education at a four-year university.”
After Northeast, Henderson plans to continue her education at
Auburn University, where she will complete her bachelor’s degree
in fashion merchandizing. Once she finishes college, she plans
to move to New York City to work within the fashion industry.
She added, “I would definitely recommend Northeast to
prospective students as a wonderful first step in obtaining a
higher education. Northeast has been a great school for me due
to the friendly environment, convenient location, and numerous
Henderson lives in Rainsville, Alabama. Her parents are David
and Terri Henderson. In addition to her love of fashion, she
likes to travel and discover new places.
