Zipped hosts launch party to celebrate Spring 2010 issue
The Spring 2010 issue of Zipped, the only fashion-focused print magazine at Syracuse University, hits campus Wednesday, April 21, at 6 p.m. with a launch party in Newhouse 3, in the lobby outside the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium. The event will feature original designs sold by student designers in the College of Visual and Performing Arts, a live DJ and copies of the newest issue of Zipped.
“Newhouse is the perfect location for us to celebrate the launch of our newest issue, as the school promotes freedom of speech and journalistic integrity, which we too stand for as a publication,” says Christine Robertson, editor in chief of Zipped. “Zipped speaks to a great deal of students on the SU campus, and we are proud of all the hard work that our staff has dedicated to this issue.”
The spring issue explores a number of timely topics, including multimedia and its impact on the fashion and communication industries, the skinny runway model debate and Amsterdam’s fashion secrets.
Student designs featured at the launch party include items from Lauren Nicole Accents, Double K Vintage and Get Banded. Items for sale will range from earrings created out of vintage buttons to handmade headbands, with all of the items showcasing the talent of VPA students.
The spring issue of Zipped will be available later this week across campus in most University buildings.
