LIM College or Fashion Runway
College students are often stereotyped as fashionless, living in sweatpants and sweatshirts. However, this is certainly not the case at LIM College. In fact, some LIM students strut the halls as if it were a fashion runway. You will see styles ranging from oversized blazers paired with chunky belts and booties to vinyl pants and fur coats, oversized pants with fitted tops, embellished bombers and fresh kicks. These students come to school to serve looks and slay each class on a daily basis.
"You never know who you’re going to meet or where you’ll end up in New York. Especially in a city that moves a mile a minute,” says Cat, a junior at LIM, who had on a rust orange Carhartt beanie, tan peacoat, with a matching tan turtleneck, paired with tan and brown camo pants and white air force ones.
Students never know who they may run into as they scurry from class to class around the city. Joanna, a Senior wearing a white polka-dotted mesh long sleeve with a silver satin cami on top and wash black jeans, says, "Your outfit is the first thing that speaks to someone, and you want to make sure it's well spoken."
Jordon, a Sophomore, wearing a stylish cheetah printed fur coat says, “It confuses me when fashion students come looking a mess. Fashion is a direct reflection of who you are. If you go to fashion school, I don't understand why you wouldn't dress up."
However, some students believe otherwise. Jevandi, a Sophomore, says, “I don't think it’s necessary to come to school every day with a full face of makeup and dressed up. It's perfectly okay to give your natural skin a break and come to school dressed comfortably.”
Lulu, another Sophomore says, “Girl, come in your sweats if you want to or dress up. Just be yourself.”
