every body, every shape, every skin color…everyone is beautiful!
August, a streetwear shop located in downtown Madison’s State Street, partnered up with SoHE students to host “Every Body,” a styling and photography event that took place on November 17. The intent of the “Every Body” concept was created to break conventional beauty standards. Students in Professor Carolyn Kallenborn‘s Design and Fashion Events Practicum course worked with August’s owner, Rob Bowhan, to develop and promote the event. Students and the public were styled using August’s brands, then photographed and sent the photos to share. “This was a real-world opportunity for students to create events in the arts that engage the public and also address contemporary social issues,” stated Kallenborn.
