Since the move to our new format, we at The Spectator do what we have dubbed a “themed” issue. With this new format, we dedicate an entire issue to a specific theme. Last semester we did millennials, finances, and sex. Last semester was our testing ground for this new format.
This semester we are starting out with something different.
We are bringing the Spectator down the runway.
Fashion is always changing. You never see the same thing going down the prestigious runways of New York Fashion Week each year. Similar to NYFW, a college campus is the perfect place to see what is in style and how fashion is changing.
In this issue we have stories on the best fashion apps, shopping hacks and even a story on the infamous “bum swag.”
Among these stories are more technical stories which include making your own lipstick out of candy.
The biggest thing we are proud of with this issue is the cover. With this cover, we want to promote that fashion comes in all shapes, sizes and colors.
Not only did we try to highlight the above statement, we also hope that our readers can see this message. While we can’t get every body shape, or size, we can offer another avenue for students to express themselves.
Along with the message that we are promoting on the cover, we are also devising a social media campaign. With this campaign, we are asking for VSU students to send, tweet or post your personal fashion sense to our various social media platforms.
With both the cover and our social media campaign, we want VSU students to embrace whatever fashion they chose to display. It is your fashion, own it. It is what makes you, you.
Like our hashtag states, show us your style!
With this being the first themed issue of the semester, we at The Spectator hope to have more developed and well researched themes further in the semester.
This issue is just the starting point.
In the words of Alexander McQueen, “fashion should be a form of escapism, not a form of imprisonment.”
