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: Carrie Plover
Carrie is a junior International Studies major hailing from Poughkeepsie, NY (you may have heard of it). Inspired by a character on Disney Channel, she wore only black for the entirety of 2001. She’s mellowed a bit since. Now, Carrie derives her fashion inspiration primarily from French women’s wear, Deborah Thornberry, and the closets of people she once dated. On an average day, you’ll find her struggling to balance a cigarette, phone, and caffeinated beverage between two hands.
