The Fashion Report, a student-run magazine produced by the Fashion Group International student group at CSU, released its fall/winter issue now available on the magazine’s new website. This is the publication’s fifth issue, and its release marks the beginning of an exciting semester filled with many changes for the magazine.
Part of the CSU community
“In this issue we tried to highlight styles and trends that most appeal to the typical college student,” explained Taylor Jaquez, public relations director for The Fashion Report, on this season’s issue, “with the desire to dress to impress within the confines of their budget and busy schedule.”
Jet-setting fashionista and fashionisto Rams can now stay on top of the latest trends in the fashion industry with The Fashion Report’s website, which offers up-to-date reports on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The Fashion Report also plans on involving students in its fashion updates this semester. “In particular, our brilliant social media team will be going around campus and taking pictures of the fashionably dressed members of our CSU community,” Jaquez said.
Expanding the horizons of fashion
This semester, The Fashion Report is implementing several new changes, which are effective in the new fall/winter issue.
For example, a new demographic has been included in this season’s issue. “This is the first issue we have included menswear trends, seen in the Extortion photo shoot,” Jaquez said. “The classic styles of button-down shirts and dress coats are updated with new patterns and accessories like suspenders, vests and ties.”
Another new feature is the magazine’s recognition of local businesses and tips on how to find unique fashion in Fort Collins. “We want to highlight those hidden gems around Fort Collins, because it’s an amazing city and there are so many entrepreneurs accomplishing remarkable things that we think deserve attention,” Jaquez said.
Publication growing rapidly
The Fashion Report’s success is evident in its increased staff. To date, the magazine has 66 contributors, allowing more diversity in job positions and helping the publication progress.
While preparing next season’s issue, The Fashion Report provides weekly fashion articles and updated fashion content to The Rocky Mountain Collegian, which can be found on the Collegian’s website and in every Wednesday’s print issue.
