Fashion Show Chic April 18th marked the day of the 6th annual Stevenson Styler Fashion Show. The fashion show was not only an event to showcase local boutiques and student made garments, but it was also a fundraiser for the organization Dress for Success. The show, held in Performing Arts Center, brought in around 350 people, and raised over $1000 for the charity. The fashion show was the result of the work of a team of student leaders, volunteers and designers. Mrs. Erickson, the faculty coordinator, said, “I wanted to involve as many students as possible this year in both the planning and execution of the show.” To do this she encouraged more students to submit designs, and expanded the volunteer opportunities. The head producers were Lana Bentson and Devin Smith, both of the class of 2019. They were assisted by a strong team of students including assistant coordinators Alexa Boden, Ella Kalis, Nicolette Lucas, Emaan Kahn, Sami Kieffer, Payton Nierman, Aarti Jain, Ava Rasty, Jessie Masursky, Megan Zenner, Hafsah Malik, Olivia Coutre and Amber Schall. This year everyone had distinct roles which really helped things run smoothly.

Want to be a part of the 2020 fashion show? We are looking for models, hair and make-up artists, and anyone that wants to help make the show run smoothly! We will be having our volunteer and model meeting on Wednesday, February 12 in room 1612. We will have one meeting at 7:45 am and another at 3:40 pm. This year the fashion show will be held on FRIDAY, APRIL 17 in the PAC at 7:00pm. If you don’t want to be involved in the show we hope to at least see you there! If you cannot attend the meeting, contact Mrs. Erickson at cerickson@d125.org

Over 3/4 of the garments featured in the show were made by Stevenson students and all were made Photos: to the left the 2019 by the students in the Clothing & Design and Advanced production team, Clothing & Design classes. Some were basic skirts, others below: Cheryl were elaborate dresses. The show debuted 20 original Chen models a looks created by the students in Advanced Clothing & look by Abeera Quarni and, Jace Design. “I am exceptionally proud of the students that go on to design school and fashion related careers after high Rice models a look styled by school. I know that I helped them discover their life’s himself. work.” The leadership team reached out to Bella Donna Boutique and Olivia’s Boutique, both in Long Grove, to showcase the fashion at their stores. “I feel it is important to include the community in events such as these. Small business offer more unique and fashion forward choices than many larger retailers.” Said Mrs. Erickson of including the boutique looks. The number of students collections grew again this year too. If a student had more than four garments in the show, all their garments were put together in one section. This highlighted the students who went above and beyond the work of a typical student. Eight students showed collections and they included: Helena Ebeling, Athena Kolli, Ella Kalis, Sami Kieffer, Marissa Osowski, Abeera Qarni, Mariam Reichert and Bina Scheufler. Overall, 33 students showed their garments in the show. 2

Social Comparison: people compare themselves to others in order to get an accurate representation of who they are.

The images being advertised to young women on social media are heavily edited, in addition to the hours it takes to get a perfect photo.

What do you picture when someone mentions a model? What race is she? How small is her waist? What does her hair look like? Does she have acne? If you don’t live under a rock, you’re probably thinking of a white, underweight young woman with shiny long hair framing a makeup clad face, free of any acne and/or blemishes. This is precisely what is wrong with the fashion and makeup industry today. This $532 billion dollar epidemic is what’s costing young women their confidence and self respect. The images the media portrays of women are unrealistic and frankly impossible to achieve. Makeup and clothing brands flood young women’s feed with skinny, smiley models on beaches in Hawaii, further insinuating the idea that women who look a certain way are happy. Most of the women in these ads are not a clear representation of women in real life. They’re all unusually tall, very young, extremely underweight but not completely flat, and have clear skin with shiny, long hair. Even going to Los Angeles or Malibu Beach, finding girls like this is extremely challenging. Researchers at Saint Mary’s University found that among modeling agencies, around 80% of models were underweight or severely underweight, and the other 20% met the weight for what’s considered anorexic.


Why fashion industry images are harmful to young women By: Scout Kubow

How your brain reacts to the edited and manipulated advertisements posted on social media

Graphics: dreamstime

A lot goes into making these advertisements look appealing. The model is surrounded by teams of makeup artists and hair stylists, along with hundreds of pins to make the clothing fit the model perfectly. Even after the photoshoot is over, editing experts airbrush every inch of the photo, making all cellulite disappear and occasionally shade over the showing ribs and collarbones. This all creates an impossible vision for what women have to look like. Deep down, women know that the photos are obviously heavily edited and distorted, but, if a teenager looks at a photo for long enough, she starts to wonder if she can look that way. Teenagers are rarely not logged on to social media. It consumes the lives of many young people. But with that comes a cost. Girls are being constantly reminded of how they are supposed to look according to the fashion industry. The messages sent by ads are very clear: being skinny, tall, and pretty determines one’s happiness and success in life. Although only 3% of the world is underweight, American culture makes it clear to women that in order to have a good life they must look like a model. It’s no wonder young women feel so uncomfortable in their own skin.

Style in the Halls Miguel Camargo, Sammy Epstein, and Eubin Ham

A daily outfit in the life of this Stevenson student will surprise you. When comfort meets style you find Jahleel Perrin. Jahleel is a senior at Stevenson High School and has a unique style. When asked about how he chooses his outfit every morning he said, “I just throw on something comfy and cool.” Jahleel enjoys shopping at places like Nike, H&M, Under Armor, and Finish Line. He likes to get cool clothes that aren’t too expensive and he feels like he can do that at these stores. Jahleel’s favorite colors are red and black as evident from his outfit.

Photo taken by Eubin Ham

This student’s style is much different. Samuel Epstein is also a senior but he goes for a more formal look. He says “I like to dress to impress. I’m constantly looking on Pinterest for a cool outfit to wear. "My style icon is ASAP Rocky and I enjoy trying to dress like him.” Samuel likes to shop at stores like Zara, Express, Hollister and Nordstrom. His style is a bit more expensive than our previous model, however, he likes to dress with a higher end look. He likes to dress according to the weather and season. Samuel wears bright colors in the summer and dark colors in the fall and winter. Photo taken by Samuel Epstein



As years have gone by, the fashion for athletes has changed drastically.20 years ago, no one really paid attention to what these athletes wore. However in this day and age where athletes are spokespeople for brands and are influencers on their own, more and more attention is being paid to the red carpet and pre/post game attire.

During Michael Jordan’s years of the ESPY’s he, along with many others, wore more basic suits and clothing with maybe an unusual color. Now, at the recent ESPY’s, athletes are wearing more unique clothing during these and other events.

As you can see in today’s red carpet occasions like the ESPY’s , men’s fashion is being greatly affected by athletes compared to what athletes used to wear. As time keeps moving forward, more unique clothing will be seen in men’s fashion along with athletes influencing fashion. More fashion based and athletic brands will even be designing red carpet fashion for everyone.


Draymond Green, one of the Golden State Warriors best players, was wearing a green suit with black suit shorts. This caused many people to start wearing suit shorts during occasions like the ESPY’s .


Odell Beckham Jr, a wide receiver in the NFL, wore a very unique outfit during the ESPY’s as well. It consists of a white button up and what seems to be a khaki vest with a large pocket on the front as well with matching khaki shorts. He is also wearing a pair of white, red and black Nike Air Force Ones.

Another example is James Harden, shooting guard for the Houston Rocket, is seen wearing a Versace snakeskin suit with suit shorts before dropping 50 points against the Lakers.

New York Fashion Trip: The Review I signed up for the fashion trip to learn more about fashion. What I didn’t realize is that I would know so much more than that. This trip is like layers. At first, I thought that all I would learn is from the brochure and the itinerary. We went to Tommy Hilfiger and Rebecca Taylor, where they talked about how they merchandise and how they sell their clothes to others. We talked to a nail artist and a designer of hair accessories and they discussed how they made their way into the industry. These were all ideas that I knew I would learn about, and I was excited to do so! The second layer was the discovery that fashion was not just clothing. The society we live in creates this bubble that fashion is just girls be obsessed with clothing and the next trend. However, there is so much behind the scenes work that I learned through this trip that I would have never learned anywhere else. New York City is the fashion city of the world, so every day, there is constant designing, selling, buying, and more. Holland, our tour guide, spent 20 years in the fashion industry.

This picture highlights my excitement over visiting the MET!

Are you interested in taking advantage of this great travel opportunity? This trip will be offered again in the summer of 2021. Be on the lookout for information at the end of this school year!

Mrs. Erickson & I on top of the Empire State Building!


She spoke about her career and life stories of making it in the industry and the sacrifices she also had to make for her career. She was a vice-president for Tommy Hilfiger for 8 years and her experiences were stories that I wouldn’t have heard anywhere else and really helped me pop that stereotypical bubble of what the fashion industry is thought of. The third layer didn’t have to do with fashion at all. I learned that I loved the city life. The idea of going on the subway and being able to head anywhere gave me a sense of freedom that the suburban lifestyle could never give me. I was transported into another world. From going to The Metropolitan Museum of Art (my favorite part) to going to see Mean Girls on Broadway, created a sense of culture that I wanted to be apart of. Even though I am still undecided with what I want to do for my future, I still got an experience that I wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else. I learned more about a passion of mine, and discovered a city that I now hold near and dear to my heart. •

FROM BIGGIE TO LIL: THE EVOLUTION OF MEN'S Maddie Schmitke & FASHION IN HIP-HOP By: Abigail Osuch gottahaverockandrole.com

From the very beginning, hip hop artists had a very distinct style. The trends consisted of baggy pants, baggy tops, chains, and hats. Rappers incorporated practically their whole closet in their style, by putting streetwear in their everyday wardrobe. Artists would incorporate multiple brands, and styles all in one outfit, to best incorporate themselves in the luxury of the designer brand. Fashion was completely about redefining oneself to the fans. Now, fashion in the rap world has the same effect of hoping to inspire fans. Now, the fashion has transitioned to more “decked� out outfits, by using big name brands in every outfit. In style now, we are seeing more beads within the accessories vs chains, which were much bigger in the 90s, but the chains have not disappeared, they have become a staple in contemporary society. Throughout the rap world, rappers incorporate their favorite brands within in their songs, to showcase the brands, and brag their wealth.

Early 90s fashion practically took over the style of rap as we now know it. Whether it be chains, belts, or name brands, they all came back to take over hip-hop today. Chains seem to be the most influential accessory that is in the hip hop world today, rappers wear them across the board, they are easy to dress up with suits for awards, and easy to dress down with sweatpants and a sweatshirt. Name brands have been a consistent trend for all rappers throughout the ages. Something about having the logo on every article of their clothing gives these rappers even more credibility, but wearing the logo isn't just about flashing the logo. Most rappers get paid to “sponsor” these name brands to their fans. Since 1990s, brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Adidas and Versace have brought forth staples in rappers closets and lyrics in their songs. Run DMC (pictured above) was the first group to be sponsored by a brand in 1998 with 3 special edition shoes. Adidas track suits soon became a look desired by b-boys and rappers alike. In fast it is still a trend today that we see around the halls of Stevenson.


Top Beauty Products to Keep Hydrating, Healthy Skin in the Winter By: Charlene Yu

Winter time can be cruel, especially on your skin. The cold air can dry out your skin easily and can cause skin irritation such as eczema. Winter air can take the life out of your skin and make you look pale. It may seem difficult to keep hydrated, radiant looking skin in the winter, but these top beauty products are sure to make your skin look fresh and radiant all winter long.



1. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! LUSH Cosmetics “Dream Cream” body lotion is a blend of oat milk, lavender, and chamomile. It is the best lotion for sensitive skin. One mom even claimed that it healed her son’s eczema! It’s my personal favorite moisturizer not only in winter, but year-round as well. It’s smooth, made of natural ingredients, and hydrates your skin instead of just sitting on your skin like others.

2. Yes, there are still UV rays in winter


3. “Glow-up” your makeup look


While there are less direct UV rays are weaker in winter, it’s still important to protect your skin from them. UVA rays can cause premature aging and damage to your skin. This finishing powder has SPF in it which protects you from the sun’s UV rays. This is easy to incorporate into your everyday makeup routine. It’s also compatible with all types of skin: oily, sensitive, dry, and normal.

Marc Jacobs Dew Drops are a favorite of many makeup users. It is a liquid highlighter that you apply over a layer of foundation. In winter, our makeup tends to look a little too matte due to the dry air. These dew drops add a little “glow (up)” to your makeup look, perfectly capturing the high points of your face. It’s easy to apply, and perfect for a glowy holiday makeup look.


4. Add some extra moisture into your face


SK-II facial mask is a facial mask that adds intense hydration into your skin. It also helps with uneven skin tone. A hydrating mask is very important especially in winter. Not only does it add extra moisture but it also gives your skin a more healthy glow the more you use it. SK-II is a brand used by celebrities including Chrissy Teigen and Kate Bosworth. This high quality Japanese brand is sure to do the best job at keeping your skin extra moisturized and refreshed.


5. Soft lips are the best lips! Chapped lips are huge problem in the winter! The dry air plus the repeatedness of licking your lips makes it worse. Chapstick is a must in winter if you want to prevent dry, peeling lips. SoftLips chapstick is smooth and easy to glide on. It’s a chapstick that doesn’t make your lips even more chapped (yes, there are brands that do that) and it’s not too oily either. SoftLips chapstick also has SPF in it, which we mentioned is needed even in winter. Plus it is available at most Walgreens stores for under $10.

6. H20, H20, dehydration no, no, no! This is not a beauty product, but it is one of the most important things you need in winter. Water helps with digestion by flushing out toxins out of your body. Water also does wonders for your skin. It locks in the moisture in your face, unclogs pores, and reduces the puffiness on your face, just to name a few. Drinking more water throughout winter will make your skin look more healthy and glowing. Bonus points if you use a refillable water bottle like this Hydroflask from Amazon for $34.


Colors of Winter 2019/20

Great Beyond

Do you want to know what’s the most fashionable color of winter? What color is everyone going to be wearing? Could it be in your closet right now? Well here is all the information needed to look trendy, but cozy during this winter season. When you’re walking down a busy avenue seeing many windows ranging of stores from Levi’s to Gucci all during the winter time have the ‘it’ colors of the season. One of the many popular colors have been introduced by Christian Siriano with a playful take on feather boas, and a very structured evening dress. This color, Galaxy Blue, also had a more serious tole by Sies Marjan with a very fit tailored leather suit (as shown in the picture). This mysterious color was chosen as one of the many Vogue colors by one getting easily lost in this color, as coming close to the mystery of the great galaxy.


Coffee Lovers Taking a turn on the color wheel, Chicory Coffee gives a calming feeling of a warm flavorful coffee being brewed. As much as caffeine lovers adore their coffee, Dries Van Noten adored this color by the love of fashion. In Dries Van Noten’s winter line there was an unique twist on the design of the jackets, and suits with a beautiful flower print taken from the designers own garden. This color is a rich combination of clothing that black just won’t give the same effect.


Snow Time! Just like the soft look of the snow, Rutabaga is a gentle beige color moving away from the true whites. Rutabaga has been brought to the light in winter fashion by having a monochromatic look seeming dazzling. In many Pinterest boards you could be possibly looking at Rutabaga colored fashion for many aesthetics. As a popular clothing item amongst the teenage youth with puffy soft material jacket brought by Salvatore Ferragamo in the winter 2019 line. This color has been a really big part in the inter fashion world and may bring inspiration to younger generations.
