About FRINGE Fall/Winter 2012

Welcome to the Fall 2012 issue of Fringe. In this issue, you will find trend highlights from the fall runways and how to incorporate them into your wardrobe, insightful alumnae interviews and an in-depth investigation about what to do with all those last-season pieces crowding your closet.

For our center spread, I was inspired by the perpetually chic looks and minimalistic design concocted by Phoebe Philo at Céline. Keeping that clean spirit in mind, we styled classic looks that incorporated the hottest trends of the season — from color blocking and cocoon coats to winter white and statement jewelry. I loved the idea of playing with tensions between masculine structuring and delicate femininity, simplicity and opulence, seriousness and playfulness.

Since I wandered into the first WSN open house and met the then-fashion editor Carrie Courogen, I knew immediately that that was what I wanted to do. One year later, I learned just how much work it takes to be the creative mind behind a special issue. Throughout the process of envisioning a cohesive theme, collaborating with the staff, requesting samples and styling and orchestrating an entire photo shoot, I have learned not only the value of patience and hard work, but that this is what I want to do — even if it means staying up until four in the morning debating which necklace looks best.

None of this would have been possible without the incredible people I have been so fortunate to work with. Without editor-at-large Francis Poon and editor-in-chief Amanda Randone’s intrepid guidance and advice, this issue would not be in your hands. I am so glad to have had the opportunity to collaborate with photographer Kristian Heijkoop, whose stunning images brought my vision to life in ways better than I ever imagined. Rebecca Ribeiro — I will never be able to thank you enough, seriously. A big thank you is also necessary for my styling assistants, Kendall Hill, Kaitlin Christy and Brennan Kilbane, for all their input and willingness to help. Thank you to Kendall Brezinski who helped cast our wonderful models, Becca Co, Connor Murphy and Elecia Allen, all of whom were a joy to work with.

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to create this issue, and I am immensely proud of the final product you have before you.

Hilary Presley, Beauty & Style Editor
