Dani (or Daniele – but that’s reserved for when she’s in trouble) grew up in sunny Singapore. She recently graduated from Vassar College and double majored in Psychology and Music. She loves all things that are quickly becoming antiquated (eg. actual books, records, film photography)… and dogs!
Nicole grew up in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore (where she met Dani in school). She later went on to attend Vassar college along with Dani and Maggie (where they met in Vassar’s hip-hop group, HYPE). Currently, Nicole is doing a fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Center in Nanjing, China. She hopes to found her own lifestyle brand one day.
Maggie comes from the Land Down Under and is obsessed with K-pop, ramen and sweatpants. She loves dancing to Britney Spears, Beyoncé and Rihanna, and is proud of her duck face much to the chagrin of her friends. Currently, Maggie is a senior at Vassar College, majoring in Economics. And to her models and staff, she appreciates all the passion, hard work, and dedication that you all put in.
Laura is an oreo-loving cookie addict who is currently a Political Science and Media Studies double major at Vassar. She loves to get low at parties and finds comfort in hugging walls. In her spare time, she loves to experiment with clothes, dance/sing like she’s Beyonce, and write spoken word pieces. She gets her fashion inspiration from Rita Ora or the Fashion section of Pinterest, and fantasizes about wearing an Oscar de la Renta dress one day. Her dream wedding dress is one that is a mixture of a Korean traditional dress (hanbok), Ghanaian traditional dress (Kente cloth), and a white contemporary wedding dress.
Ellis likes to make cheesy pun jokes and wishes competitive eating was an actual job. She loves the color yellow (but only a specific kind of yellow), giraffes, and cold chai lattes. In her spare time she enjoys working on her writing, catching up on her shows, and writing letters to her friends.
Drew, a sophomore Political Science and Anthropology double major, started photography in high school as a way of connecting with his mother, who is also a photographer. Since then, his style has evolved and his focus now is on conceptual photography, especially self-portraits. However, fashion photography is where he started and he could never stop shooting beautiful people in beautiful clothes! In addition to photography, Drew is an Ultimate Frisbee player, a DJ, and also the president of Main House. Check out his website and flicker.
Katherine Cuan is a senior at Vassar College, majoring in Biology and minoring in Chinese. She currently lives in the Big Apple, but has spent time in California, China, and Venezuela. She loves dancing, reading fantasy-fiction novels (A Song of Ice and Fire, anyone??), and quoting Friends on a daily basis. Katherine gets her fashion inspiration from Clothes Encounters and her friends.
Angelo has been to twenty-two countries. He’s met Buddhist monks, Japanese businessmen, and Bulgarian farmers. He’s slept in old monasteries and crumbling farmhouses and Soviet-era trains and towering Chinese apartment buildings. He started taking photographs when he began traveling. He never stopped. You could say that he likes photography. He’s excited to be taking pictures for The College Catalogue. You should check out some of his photos on flickr.
