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.”

Cyrus is a sophomore from New York City. He is a film major and hopes to either edit narrative films or write JSTOR articles on competitive reality television. Cyrus’ interest in fashion stems from both an adolescent and current love for dressing up and then poorly taking care of his Sims. He often wonders who let the fashion of the early 2000s happen, and if that person will ever strike again.

Jonathan is a sophomore, born and raised in Flushing, Queens, New York. As a Greek and Roman Studies major and a Sociology correlate, he simultaneously studies the really dead and the really alive. His style varies, ranging anywhere from Korean Minimalist Fashion to “Look Sporty Without Actually Being Sporty” (think Tadashi Hamada from Big Hero 6). His love for dressing up probably stems from the hours he spent as a pre-teen playing Maplestory, Neopets, and Animal Crossing.
