EDITOR’S LETTER

Every decade comes with a particular style. The 1920s had flappers, the 1960s had hippies, but I would say that the 1940s Hollywood glam style takes the cake. For our 1940s Hollywood glam shoot, we dove deep into the pool of style icons of a generation just as wayward as our own. The 1940s were known for their classic and distinctive style. Style icons such as Lucille Ball and Katherine Hepburn ruled the big screen with their dramatic eyes and perfectly waved hair. Their dresses were (mostly) conservative but accentuated all the things a lady want to be accentuated. Designers, such as Chanel and Kate Spade, are keeping the 1940s alive in 2012. They are taking

classic fabrics, like tweed, and pairing them with current styles and trends. One 1920s trend making a comeback are platform heels. Done now with a little more flair and sass, the platform heel is reminiscent of our 1940s fashionistas. Today, it is surprisingly easy for people to incorporate the classic styles of the 1940s into their everyday wardrobes. We at TRAX encourage you to go out and see what decade you find most inspires your style. You might be surprised at what fabulous styles you find are being brought back from previous decades. -Justine Tutewohl Co-Editor-in-Chief

DENIM FEVER

Denim -- the quintessential American clothing staple. Everyone has their favorite pair of jeans in their closet, and nothing is more flattering on the body than well-fitted blue jeans. Not only do they look great, but they are extremely versatile. Denim trends are constantly changing with the seasons, and this year, denim is popping up in a plethora of different styles.- Emily Wells

DENIM ON DENIM Don’t let images of Britney Spears’ full out denim dress for the 2001 American Music Awards scare you away from this trend. When done right, denim on denim can be a great look. You do not want your denims to match too closely or it can end up looking like a jumpsuit. Pair dark skinny jeans with a lighter, thin button up denim shirt. If you don’t like that look, try it with a studded denim vest. Denim jackets are often too heavy to wear with a pair of jeans, but if you have a denim jacket you love, try it with colored or black jeans. Feel free to throw a pop of red in with a shirt, scarf or shoes. It will help to balance the large amounts of blue.

COLORED DENIM Walking around campus, you can’t help but see an array of brightly-colored pants. From bright pink to orange to aquamarine, there is almost every color on the market. It can be easier to pull off a bright color if it is in a pair of pants rather than a top. It is also a fun and easy way to make an outfit look dressed up. Keep your top simple, so that the attention stays on your pants. Try neutral tones such as gray, black, beige, or white for your top. Dark, colored pants also look perfect with a sheer, pastel top in the same color family- monotone outfits like this are very stylish. Pick up your pair of colored jeans to get in on this fabulous trend!

MORE DENIM FEVE PRINTED DENIM Printed denim has been in stores for a few seasons now, but this trend is just beginning to make a big wave. Wearing printed denim requires some risk-taking, but when this style is pulled off it is very eye-catching. Most of the choices in stores right now are floral print, and these pants should be paired with a white, chiffon top. Black and white printed pants are also becoming popular and it is easier to wear this style with a colored or black top. Choose one color from your printed pants and find it in a heel, which will tie the entire outfit together. If you are wearing a white top, find a necklace in the same color as your heel. This girly look is great for going out to dinner with your friends!

FLARED DENIM Skinny jeans have dominated the market for many years now, but it’s time to swing back to flare jeans. The key to finding the right pair of flared jeans is fit. You want it to fit tighter in the thigh but gradually flare out starting around the knee. This gives you the look of a flare, without being too dramatic. Also resist throwing on a flouncy, peasant top which can be a bit too reminiscent of the 70’s. Instead, go with a fitted blazer or top. It keeps the look sleek, professional, and chic. Try high-waisted flare jeans, a black and white striped shirt, and a black blazer. This trend is all the rage on the streets of Milan.

FIRST LADIES OF First lady Michelle Obama is one of this decade’s most prominent style icons. Being constantly in the public eye, it is essential that the First Lady of the United States, both past and present, look put together everywhere they go.- Jane Campbell

W

hen election season rolls around, your Twitter and Facebook feed are suddenly full of political views from one end of the spectrum to the other. While keeping up on today’s issues is extremely important if you want to be an informed voter, it’s hard not to take notice of the candidates leading ladies style as well. Being a first lady sure has its perks, one of those includes having young, up and coming designers like Jason Wu and Thakoon design fabulous clothes for you. First ladies have always been a source of fashion iconography throughout the years since they are always in the public eye. A couple names you may recognize include our current, lovely, first lady Michelle Obama and Jackie Kennedy Onassis (Jackie O, anyone?). Both of these upstanding, strong women stood by their president husbands while looking absolutely fabulous at the same time. So what were some of their most famous style moments? Jackie O, wife of President John F. Kennedy, had a little fashion secret behind her amazing style named Oleg Cassini. Cassini was a French-born American fashion designer who created an entirely original wardrobe for Jackie while her husband was in office. With Cassini’s creations, Jackie became a huge fashion influence for the women of the 1960s, and continues to influence women of today. One of Jackie’s most iconic fashion moments was in 1961 at the inauguration of John F. Kennedy where she wore a taupe wool coat and matching hat designed by Cassini. The large buttons and unexpected color of the coat made her stand out in a sea of dark colored and fur coats. With winter quickly coming upon us, we should take a note from Miss Jackie O and not forget the importance of the fashion statement a coat can carry. Instead of sticking with black for every coat you buy, try mixing it up. Fun details like an unconventional color or different kinds of buttons or decorations make handling the snowy weather a bit more cheerful. Add even more Jackie flair by tying a silk scarf around your head or neck or even on your purse!

F FASHION The current first lady, Michelle Obama, also has some major style to spare for inspiration. One of my favorite things about Michelle is her fearlessness when it comes to picking out a dress. So many women stick to a typical little black or white dress for many formal events when the possibilities are endless! Take note of Michelle’s 2008 inaugural ball gown designed by Jason Wu. Michelle could have gone with something safe, practical, and serious, but instead she took a chance with this beautiful draped, white chiffon gown. The gown also was only one-shoulder which may have shocked some, but only reinforced Michelle as a strong woman taking fashion risks. Michelle’s style is truly classic and ladylike, but daring all at the same time.

“Women like Jackie O and Michelle Obama remind us of the power of fashion when you are a strong woman.” As us young women grow older, I think we can all agree that we assume the fun of fashion slowly fades. Women like Jackie O and Michelle Obama remind us of the power of fashion when you are a strong woman. Women in power want to be taken seriously, but still having a killer sense of style shows that we’re not willing to give up our amazing creative and original personalities.

COMING TO AMERICA Apparel design student Maisee Heurh talks about life as a first generation Hmong American and her American dream

16

TRAX WINTER 2012


A

merica has long been a beacon of light for families and individuals hoping to create a better life for themselves. We proudly proclaim our country to be the “Melting Pot” of blended cultures and diverse ethnicities. Most Americans can trace their roots back to their first ancestor crossing the ocean seeking the promise of opportunity and equality in America. And for some forced to flee from war-torn countries, America is a place of refuge where their communities can resettle and rebuild. When I sat down with Maisee Heurh on a gorgeous afternoon she appeared to be in good spirits. This semester in the apparel design program has proven less stressful than past semesters for the third year student. And she was happy to share her experience growing up in America as a first generation Hmong American. The Hmong people are an Asian minority group who live predominantly in Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. During the Vietnam War, the Hmong aided the U.S. Army against the North Vietnamese invading Laos. When the U.S. withdrew from the area, the Hmong were forced to flee from Laos to refugee camps in Thailand to avoid retribution from the new regime. Heurh’s parents were among those to escape to Thailand. “It’s a long story,” she said laughing a little. Her parents married when they were 17 and lived in a refugee camp in Thailand where her father acted as doctor and teacher, helping American missionaries communicate with wounded Hmong. With sponsorship from the missionaries and a brother who already lived in the United States, her parents were among the lucky refugees who were able to immigrate to the United States in the late 1960s. Her father, Jerchah, had picked up rudimentary English from working with the missionaries in Thailand, but her mother, Kia, didn’t know a single word, which Heurh said made living in America very difficult at first. The family settled in Lacrosse, Wisconsin where Jerchah became a pastor for the Hmong community church. “As a pastor’s kid, we moved around a lot,” Heurh said. “Wherever there was a church in need of a pastor, we would go.”

we moved around a lot,” Heurh said. “Wherever there was a church in need of a pastor, we would go.” When Maisee, the fourth child of seven, was in the second grade, the family moved from Lacrosse to Fresno, California and then moved again to Portland, Oregon. Living in the suburbs in Portland there wasn’t a large Hmong community, Heurh said, and she became more Americanized but struggled with knowing she was different.“The biggest question was how do I blend who I am at home with who I am at school?” Heurh said. “It was just knowing you were different; how you live, what you eat is different.”

“The biggest question was how do I blend who I am at home with who I am at school?”

It wasn’t until Heurh’s family moved to St. Paul, Minnesota in 2004 that she finally felt she belonged to a community and found her identity as a Hmong American. St. Paul and Minneapolis are home to the largest metropolitan Hmong population in the United States with 64,422 Hmong people, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. The community is very welcoming and hospitable, Heurh said, and very family oriented. And it was here that Heurh said she knew what she missed out on in her childhood. Switching focus a little bit, I wanted to know when she developed her love for fashion design and how her parents felt about her choosing an unconventional career path. She couldn’t help but laugh and admitted, “My story is really odd.”

When families in the Hmong community first move to America, the parents have little chance to pursue an education and immediately start working low-income jobs because they need to support a large family. They push their children to take advantage of their education and pursue secure, high-paying career paths that will gain them a higher status in the Hmong community. She always wanted to be a pharmacist or pediatrician, Heurh admitted, but she was also always involved in arts and theater. By her senior year of high school, Heurh dropped her dreams of medical school and decided to go to school for theater. A decision that her parents took surprisingly well. Her older siblings had already discarded high status careers, becoming counselors and teachers instead, so when Heurh announced her decision, her parents took it in stride. “I found that I didn’t really enjoy theater in college though,” Heurh said. She looked into the options offered by the College of Design and settled on apparel design. “I just went for it,” she said. “I didn’t know I would love it so much.”

Her culture and the places she has lived have played a large role in her design inspiration. The Hmong tribes are uniquely named for their choice of apparel. Heurh is a White Hmong, known for their simple white skirts, but she said other tribes, such as the Green Hmong have brightly colored and patterned clothing. Over the summer, Heurh had the opportunity to incorporate her traditional Hmong heritage into her designs while interning with Tara LaTour, a courture bridal label in Minneapolis who she said really inspired her to be her own designer. “I have a big heart for my community,” Heurh said. “I would love to create a ready-to-wear line of Hmong inspired designs one day.” But Heurh’s American dream is to become a couture wedding designer (her two biggest design inspirations being Vera Wang and Tara LaTour) as well as a wedding event coordinator and planner. And once she has an established business, she said she wants to give back to her community. “I’d love to create a program to help young Hmong girls and boys to stay out of trouble,” Heurh said. “I want to be an advocate for young people to aspire to a higher education.”

HOLIDAZZLE A GUIDE ON WHAT TO WEAR HOLIDAY SEASON

THIS

Despite the frigid cold temperatures in Minnesota, this holiday season is all about dressing to impress. TRAX recommends bold statement pieces of either clothing or accessories. Don’t be afraid to mix colors, patterns and textures! Below are just a few ideas of what to wear to various types of parties.- Jordee Kalk

To a casual college party:

Let’s just be real for a second; going to a standard college party means lots of walking so to stay warm, tall boots with pants and sweaters are more than highly encouraged. Go for colored jeans; maroon, green, gray or teal. Mix these with a chunky sweater and scarf and you’ll be set!

To a cocktail party:

Three words: little black dress. Honestly, it is a classic look that cannot go wrong. Throw on a black dress, pair it with some stilettos, add some studded jewelry, and the night will be perfect!

To a work party:

What is appropriate to wear to a party function with colleagues and peers? For one, make sure the outfit is dressy but not too flashy. It’s important to look fashionably classic- this could be the night where you could receive a promotion! For these types of events try a simple dress, tights, heels, a dress coat and a small clutch to throw some lipstick and cash in!

Ombre Ornaments What you need: DecoArt transparent Glass Stain clear glass ornaments string small round bowl to dip the ornament in paper grocery bag to catch any drips Courtesy: AMBROSIA GIRL

Clean outside of ornament with a damp cloth. Empty out entire bottle of glass stain into your dish. Tie end of a 12 inch long string to top of the ornament. Knot a loop on the other end to hang the ornament while the paint dries. Wrap string around your hand and fingers so that it isn’t in the way, and submerge ornament about halfway. Pull out, letting paint drip off, then submerge again about 1/3 of the way. Pull ornament out, then submerge in smaller increments. Hang ornament over a paper grocery bag to drip-dry. The stain will pool to the bottom of the ornament, creating a little bubble. While the paint is wet, gently wipe this off with your fingertip every 10 minutes. Cover any leftover paint with plastic wrap. When the first layer of stain is completely dried, dip just the lower 1/4 of the ornament back in to deepen the color. Let dry.
