As the season changes and cold weather approaches, new fall trends are making their way to campus.

John Gardner, a broadcast and cinematic arts major, has been interested in fashion since he was a child, which then followed him into high school.

“We had something called High Fashion Society, where I was the treasurer and secretary of.”

Gardner has continued in the fashion scene since attending CMU where he’s been a part of the OBU fashion show and the Threads fashion show.

Over the years Gardner’s fashion has changed.

“I’ve learned how to express myself a lot more.”

Brady Pitcher, a Fashion Merchandising major, became interested in fashion during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I was just scrolling through Instagram looking at clothes and stuff, and buying a lot, and I was like, this is interesting. I just like how clothes make you feel and how it makes you feel better overall.”

Pitcher is a part of the new Verge magazine at CMU which focuses on fashion-related content but incorporates other topics such as beauty and politics. Pitcher is the social media editor.
