Perhaps it was when the models descended the grand staircase at Brick Street Bar that I realized that UP Magazine meant serious business in throwing a release party for the newly fresh off the press winter issue, Youth in Revolt.
Guests to the party came decked out in all black and distressed looks to match the rebellious nature of this issue. The vibe dominated the event’s fashion show as models on the runway fiercely repped pieces from local boutiques The Apple Tree and Juniper.
So what is there to expect from Youth in Revolt? Our very own publisher, Francesca Peck says, “Youth in Revolt is all about resisting conformity in today’s society. It calls readers to question authority and rewrite the rules of American popular culture: beauty standards, fashion trends, social norms.”
In its 71 pages, Youth in Revolt manages to shatter fashion myths, make a statement about body image, explore the power of music, and more.
To revel in all of what Youth In Revolt has to offer, be sure to pick up an issue at one of the many distribution spots on campus or read it on our site here!
