The wait is over, fashion fans.
The inaugural issue of SMU’s first fashion magazine, SMU Look, has officially hit the stands.
SMU Look staff gathered at the flagpole on Thursday to distribute copies of their work: a fashion magazine that aims to “inspire and cultivate the standard of style on campus and beyond.”
The magazine is the product of three months of hard work in professor Camille Kraeplin’s fashion journalism class. Editor in Chief India Pougher said the magazine was a collaborative effort.
“We worked as a team to come up with all of the story ideas,” said Pougher. “Everyone wrote stories, did photoshoots, or sold advertisements. We’re so excited about the finished product.”
The 38-page issue features everything from profiles on stylish SMU alums to outfit recommendations for local brunch hotspots and even a Guy’s Guide. Writers explore trends in Deep Ellum, on the Boulevard, at Highland Park Village, and even in Fondren Library.
“I love the photo spreads,” said Creative Director Sara Worth Mullally. “There’s one beauty spread with Jules Pouch, an SMU student, and one in the new Fondren library with three professional models. It’s so fun.”
SMU-TV has a fashion program called The Look, but this is the first fashion magazine published by SMU’s Student Media Company.
“I am extremely impressed by what our students have pulled off this semester,” said professor Kraeplin.
