About the

e d i t o r

My name is Mackenzie Depperschmidt and I am a summer 2013 graduate of the Apparel Studies program at the University of Arkansas. I also have a minor in Spanish. I graduated with a 3.85 and was name to the Deans and Chancellor’s Lists multiple times. During my time at the U of A, I was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. I recently completed an internship at Jack’s Outfitters and am now pursuing a full time job. I would ideally like to work in a show room at the World Trade Center. I feel that I would be perfect for this job because I am highly organized, selfmotivated, and a people person. Not to mention, I love fashion, so I hope to be able to share it with others in my career.

Feminine Details A not so sweet take on lace, bows, and scalloped hems.

I really love feminine clothing, and given the many chances I had during my class work, I usually chose to design or work with very girly styles. The image on the left page is from a trend board for my final project for computer based methods. I chose the theme “All Dolled Up.� The top at the top of this page was one of the five pieces I designed for this collection. I also created the colorway for the fabric. The croquis image was created for a graphic design course. I first traced the croquis, then created the outfit for it to wear. Once again, I chose a very feminine shape and color scheme. In my personal style, I like to combine feminine items with edgy ones so the look doesn’t feel to sweet. For example, I might pair the top with a leather motorcycle jacket to rough it up a bit.

Our favorite Local H O T Spots I completed my summer internship for Apparel studies with a boutique in Highland Village, Texas. The boutique is called Jack’s Outfitters and carries both mens and womens apparel as well as a variety of dog related

merchandise. While interning, I assisted with daily operations of the store, but my biggest responsibility was to create a social media presence for the boutique. I compiled our list of customer emails and started a distribution list. Jack’s has been open over five years, but I sent the first ever email. Since Facebook is a large part of social media, I also helped to increase the number of likes for our page by creating a contest to giveaway a prize of Southern Tide merchandise worth well over $350. In just over a week, we had 120 new likes, which was an improvement over the usual 10 per week.
