Model: Bryce Daniel

Bryce is a senior Film major from California. He splits his time between creating short films, freelance designing, and working on Nubko (http://nubko.com), a web startup focused on helping artists collaborate that he co-founded with two other Vassar students this semester. You can often see him boosting around campus on his longboard, avoiding sidewalk cracks and his problems. The bracelet in this post was particularly significant to Bryce because it was fashioned by Bryce for himself and his twin brother out of a single sheet of copper, stating that it “in a strange way helps me feel connected to him.”

Cecilia is a sophomore from Scottsdale, Arizona who is a tentative Sociology major and dreams of dismantling capitalism. She is inspired by the fashion of Edna Mode, Solange Knowles, Tilda Swinton, Yayoi Kusama, Olivia Josselyn, and Alexander Wang’s six year-old niece. In high school, she was obsessed with erotic fan fiction about Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger (“Dramione”), and she thinks of herself as a Jeff Winger-Miranda Hobbes hybrid.

Model: Ariel Looser

I’m an Environmental Studies major, class of 2016, from New York. Someone once told me I was “the most extreme health goth” they knew, which I’d say sounds like an overstatement, but I guess that’s how some see my style. Definitely my wardrobe consists of a lot of black, white and grey. Personally, I’d say there’s a touch of 80’s influence…? As for fun facts, I was struggling a little, so I asked some friends. The first thing that most of them suggested was my avid veggie eating–in fact I went as a grim vegetable reaper for Halloween this year because I (pardon the pun) kill at eating veggies.

Models: Jordan Ross and Iyana Shelby

Jordan is a double major in Sociology and Chinese, Class of 2016 from Singapore. Her fashion inspiration used to be a blogger who goes by Rinny Riot, but more recently she has been into the blogger Robynthebank. She only realized this year that she could walk around in platforms and not eat concrete. Jordan does not consider herself fashion oriented at all: “I wear what I like and what feels good.”

‘Iyana’ is a short story portraying life as human trash. When she’s not figuring out what black item to wear off her floor, she’s attempting to maneuver Vassar College as ya #1 sad shawty. When she’s not looking mean as she walks through the Retreat, she’s chilling memorizing neurotransmitters as a Neuro ’16 major.

Adam is a junior History major from Hollis, New Hampshire. He tried growing tobacco this summer, but it died. His favorite dish at Kismat is Chana Masala and Khandahrai Kulcha Naan. When getting dressed, Adam always asks himself: could I climb a tree in this? And ideally, his clothing looks the way Brian Blade’s drums sound.

Model: Miranda Fetterman

“My aesthetic is somewhere between ‘Chico’s mom’ and ‘Warped Tour Lolita,'” says Miranda, a freshmen from Hudson, Ohio. She’s usually inspired by specific pieces that she finds- the Vietnam jacket, the tall socks, a great pair of boots- and rearranges her existing wardrobe around the new staple pieces. She loves how fashion gives her the freedom to turn elements of what she was forced to wear as a kid (pleated kilts, knee-high socks, saddle shoes etc.) into vehicles of self-expression and individuality.
