Thread: The Art Institute of Austin's First Ever Fashion Magazine.


Thread: Fashion Capstone's magazine cover.

As promised, The Art Institute of Austin's first student magazine, Thread has been posted online. I am incredibly excited that I get to share this experience with y'all. The class was made up of eleven students, which is a funny twist because we only had eleven weeks to make the final copy.

I cannot tell you how much time was spent on the magazine. Countless hours between the graphic designer, editor-in-chief, and creative director were used to meticulously create a tangible product.

As the copy editor, I read and reread the magazine dozens of times. Not to mention the other editors, who put together their own pieces that concentrated on the city of Austin, including a seamless fashion editorial.



It's bittersweet to know that this will be the only edition, as it was for a class. If I were a less advanced student, I would push to make it a quarterly publication. As a senior, I only have six months left at The Art Institute. I have bigger things to focus on! But this was a nice stepping stone from the classroom to the real world. I am so happy at how it turned out, and cannot express how lucky I have been to work with all the individuals who helped create Thread.

You can view the online copy of Thread here. Let me know what parts you enjoyed (or didn't; everyone's a critic), and I'll be sure to pass along the info. And, as I CANNOT SAY IT ENOUGH, thank you for all the support. It means so much to me! Hope you have a lovely day.
