Colby Ware, For The Baltimore Sun
May 8, 2013
Lily Amberg, 20, is a full-time design and merchandising student at Drexel University. But, at the fashion event May Day 2013 - which benefited the Baltimore Fashion Alliance and Sharp Dressed Man Program - it was clear she's picked up plenty of style in the work she also does as a model. The Philadelphia resident wore to the Tremont Grand a long-sleeve black, gold and teal print bodycon dress from the Australian blackmilkclothing.com. "It's my favorite clothing company," she said. "They're very artistic and make some crazy things." Amberg added a studded black leather Bebe jacket. "I bought it off the wardrobe stylist at my last photo shoot," she said. She found her black Jeffrey Campbell booties with spiked heels at urbanoutfitters.com and "stole" the black Coach wristlet from her mom. Her style? "Rocker chic/alternative," she said. "I like to maintain girliness, but with some punk/hardcore [accents]. I like to be a little scary. It's not fashion if it doesn't offend someone."
