Models: Sophia Yoo and Ashley Kim
Ashley is a sophomore Chemistry major born in Queens and raised on Long Island, New York. She likes to dance and primarily dances hip hop and k-pop. Ashley enjoys doing her makeup and can probably spend hours perfecting (or trying to perfect) her makeup. Her style mostly stems from Korean street fashion and she wears way too much pink for someone whose least favorite color was pink until last summer.
Sophia is a sophomore from California majoring in Chemistry (and possibly art). Since visiting Korea for the first time in 7 years this winter, much of her wardrobe consists of clothes from the streets of Seoul. She draws her style inspiration from people she comes across on Instagram. And no, she and Ashley are not twins, nor are they related.

Model: KerryAnn Millin (Mills)
Mills is a sophomore from Swaziland in Southern Africa. She is as indecisive about her intended major and life goals as she is about her fashion goals. Granny chic, bohemian hippy and dad’s old shirt all blend together in a typical week. Drawing inspiration from her empty wallet, her look mainly comes from thrift stores or generous relatives and friends, but there’s always guaranteed to be bright colours and patterns complemented by the pop of her signature red hair.

Model: Kirk Testa
Kirk is an undeclared Philosophy and Art History major from the Class of 2019. He was born and raised in the Philippines and moved to California at age 8. Kirk enjoys asking life’s hard questions while seeking beauty in all of its myriad forms. His style is inspired by blending the challenge and rebellion of Westwood and Kawakubo with the classical confidence of Chanel.
