Flourishing Flashbacks of Fall 2018

In the midst of the chaos of the new academic year, UDRESS students let loose to flaunt their more playful sides.

UDRESS presented students with refreshing and rejuvenating content for fall 2018. UDRESS emphasized wellness and showcased splashes of fun in both the print magazine and at the Fall Fashion Event at Trabant MPRs. Writers provided overviews of youthful fashion trends, such as prints and color, and synopses of popular books for young adults. The #athleisure movement also moved its way into the Flourish issue. At the Lil’ Bob Gym, several models showed off their muscles in practical yet trendy sportswear. Finally, no UDRESS issue would be complete without some #foodie content; recipes used protein powder and fruit – college staples for a healthy semester.

Light appetizers and merchandise booths commenced the fall 2018 Fall Fashion Event. The university’s own a capella groups opened the runway show before models strutted on the MPR stage-turned-catwalk that featured everything from gowns to ‘90s grunge. UDRESS prides itself on having a diverse range of models that represent all types of students at the University of Delaware. In regards to stereotypes, co-model coordinator Amanda Defilippis, senior communications major, told students “throw them away” before the runway started. This confidence-booster eased models as they stepped on the catwalk in front of their peers and loved ones.

 

In the midst of the chaos of the new academic year, UDRESS students let loose to flaunt their more playful sides. Each team within the RSO diligently worked on its delegated task and helped compose a high-end and cohesive issue.
