About Me

Hi, I’m Eva!

In the Seaport District in New York, NY

I’d like to think of myself of an aspiring Blair Waldorf-type (although I can’t say I’ve been all that successful).

I grew up in the Minneapple (Minnesota). Now, I’m trying to make it in the Big Apple (5 years and counting!). I’ve got a case of travel bug that can’t be cured, so you’re equally as likely to find me on a plane as you are home. Although I travel frequently, returning to Manhattan is always as exciting as the first time. This city is something else.

I recently graduated from my dream school, Parsons School of Design, with a Fashion Design BFA, and loved every single second of it. To view my design work, click here.

I started Eva Darling as “The Preppy Ballerina” (collective cringe, I know) on my 14th birthday, in my parents’ basement with a love for Lilly Pulitzer and a collection of questionable images from my iPod Touch 4.

Nearly 10 years later, Eva Darling has transformed into a luxury travel and style website, where I aim to empower women to see the world solo and provide honest, reliable travel advice, while sharing on-trend feminine style. For my solo female travelers (or any traveler!) out there, I’m always an email away!

Stay a while and watch the craziness unfold, you’re always welcome.
