In the spring of 2016, I worked on Drake Magazine, writing and styling the major fashion feature for that semester’s publication. I have to give a shoutout to Will Muckian for being my assistant stylist, Jordan German for the amazing job with hair & makeup, Sam Fathallah for the incredible photography, and the design team for the beautiful layout.
As a senior in high school mulling over which university I should attend, I had a dream that became a strong factor which compelled me to choose Drake University. That dream was to work for Drake Magazine, a campus publication known for its bold look and even bolder stories.
My freshman year at Drake University, I showed up to the pitch meeting to pitch an idea that ultimately became the biggest fashion feature in the edition: a fashion feature inspired by the on the songs on your playlist.
This spread took a lot of work behind-the-scenes, however, I loved every second of it. From researching trends and choosing the models, to meeting with the designer and photographer to align our visions for the collaboration, to styling the models and executing the shoot, this was a thrill to bring together.
