Model: Petch Kingchatchaval

Petch is a freshman from Bangkok, Thailand, by way of London. She’s hoping to major in History of Art, thereby securing a future of healthy unemployment. When getting dressed, her two reference points are always her mum (stalk her @buppa_buppa) and 2015 Harry Styles. She once stood behind Oscar Isaac in a drinks queue and sniffed his hair.

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: Cecilia Hoang

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.

Model: Adam Gray

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.
