BodyCon(cious) — Encompassing all things art and beauty
The Palouse isn’t widely known as a fashion hotspot, but Kate Mills, Mollie Wonacott, and Crystal Truong are out to change that. The trio, who are all clothing, textiles and design majors, began the Body Con club during the spring of 2012, UI junior Truong said. All three serve as presidents of the club.“We wanted to bring creative students together who have an appreciation for fashion, art, event planning, photography, public relations, and journalism as well recognizing the work of those affiliated,” Truong said.
Body Con aims to help students build their creative portfolios by helping them plan events, shows and other goings-on, which will all be student-run.
Truong said the club tries to establish real world simulations and career building opportunities.
She said she hopes the club will put on fashion shows, tutorials, photo shoots, online publications and meet industry professionals.
“The girls and I wanted to leave our mark on U of I while building our portfolios and helping other students build theirs,” Mills, UI senior, said. “We want to bring together fabulous people with appreciation for art and fashion.”
Currently the group has 25 prospective members and hopes to meet at least once a month starting this Tuesday.
