[This summer, Hoot is highlighting a week in outfits as told by stylish CU students at their various jobs and internships. Here, Nicola Kirkpatrick (BC ’19) tells us about her internship at the senatorial campaign for Los Angeles Attorney General Kamala Harris. Needless to say, Nicola is an SGA queen.]
While I spent the first half of summer in NYC, I decided to escape the humidity and spend the second half back home in Los Angeles! Here, I have been working on Attorney General (AG) Kamala Harris’s campaign for U.S. Senate. Much like the candidate herself, the campaign’s staff and interns are exuberant, passionate, and dedicated to winning the upcoming election; these traits can be seen in the “business very casual” dress code.

[This summer, Hoot is highlighting a week in outfits as told by stylish CU students at their various jobs and internships. Here, Juliette Kang (CC ’18) tells us about her internship at Man Repeller, including helping out former Hoot EiC Krista on photoshoots and discovering the best ice cream in the city.]
In early high school one of my go-to websites was a fashion blog called Man Repeller. Back then, Man Repeller was a blog (or maybe time hole?) where you could endlessly scroll through image after image of “man-repelling” outfits. The style of the Man Repeller (Leandra Medine!) had always followed a single mantra: dress in something so eccentric that it was repelling to the opposite sex. This slightly off-putting and odd style is something that has definitely rubbed off in my own personal style. Now, six years later, Man Repeller has evolved into a fully fledged website, no longer just photos of THE Man Repeller herself, but a website that now includes humorous and thoughtful pieces on fashion, health, beauty, wellness, dating, and culture. Most importantly it has some really ~~*SICK*~ visuals that I, as a visuals intern under my boss and former Hoot Mag co-Editor-in-Chief, Krista Anna Lewis ‘15 help to create.

[This summer, Hoot is highlighting a week in outfits as told by stylish CU students at their various jobs and internships. Here, Anisa Tavangar (BC ’18), Hoot’s Editor-in-Chief, tells us about her internship at issuu, where she dipped her toe into Silicon Valley life.]
I never imaged myself working at a startup but after meeting the issuu team when they invited Hoot to participate in their Generators Camp, a meeting of millennial publishers, I became interested in the world of digital publishing. Of course, we publish Hoot online but before talking with those other publishers, I didn’t really explore the other content on issuu. Working at issuu, I’m able to spend time discovering other fashion and student-run publications and additional magazines made by people all over the world. I’m part of the marketing team, which has allowed me to find ways to bring that amazing content to a wider audience, and work on an exciting project that is soon to come!

[This summer, Hoot is highlighting a week in outfits as told by stylish CU students at their various jobs and internships. Here, Francesca Butterfield (BC ’19) tells us about her internship at 511 Gallery, which includes a lot of updos, new discoveries, and, obviously, art.]
Entering Barnard, I never would have thought I’d want to stay in the city the summer after my first year. But as the end of the year approached, I found myself becoming attracted to the idea of spending my summer gaining experience through an internship. I’m still relatively unsure of what I want to do career-wise, and I think the best way to figure out what’s right for you is to try internships is various fields. This summer, I wanted to explore my interest in working at an art gallery.

[This summer, Hoot is highlighting a week in outfits as told by stylish CU students at their various jobs and internships. Here, Charlotte Spritz (BC ’18) tells us about her internship at Elle where she spends a lot of time on set for photoshoots and around cool people.]
I think my interest in fashion honestly started with me binge watching America’s Next Top Model in 6th grade, but since then it’s been a consistent passion of mine, which has lead me to my internship this summer at Elle Magazine. My specific internship is under the Associate Fashion Editor whose job is to cover the menswear market as well as style photoshoots for the magazine. Since I’m the only intern to my boss, it means that I split my time between working in the fashion closet at the Elle office and assisting my boss on set for photoshoots.

[This summer, Hoot will highlight a week in outfits as told by stylish CU students at their various jobs and internships. In this first installment, we asked Abbie Kim (BC ’17) to tell us about her work at the HVW8 (pronounced “heavyweight”) Gallery in LA and how she dresses for such a design-oriented gig.]
My intent this year was to follow my passion for art and work the gallery world. I wanted to work with a gallery that was in touch with culture, and I was fortunate to come across such a match with HVW8 Gallery. The majority of the artists that we work with have heavy ties into other fields as well- whether that be sports, skateboarding, or music just to name a few. I started working with HVW8 Gallery in the fall of 2015 where I interned at their recently opened Berlin location. When I returned to the States I went on to travel with the gallery with a Bernie Sanders group art show— the Art of a Political Revolution. I’m happy to finally be settled at their home base in Los Angeles where I will be working as a gallery assistant and selling art this summer.

With the word “millennial” thrown around so often, we almost forgot what it actually means but Anna K is here to remind us. At 20 years of age and four collections under her belt (shown in Kiev, London, New York, and now Milan), she representations of the power of youth.
Her latest collection, aptly named “Guest From the Future”, takes us out of this world and introduces us to the next generation of intergalactic young women coming from a different space and time. The collection imagines how much power to shape the zeitgeist coming generations will have.

NYFW F/W’16 was my first fashion week. I had dreamed of getting involved with fashion week after watching the first season of Project Runway at the age of 7. Helping out backstage this season was one of the best experiences of my life and I felt as if I was teleported into a world where everyone understood that fashion as an essential part life. NYFW F/W’16 was absolute perfection. My only regret of the week was not buying an unlimited MetroCard.

As a proud native Texan, my heart swells two sizes too big at the mere mention of home, so landing the chance to interview fellow Houstonian and luxury designer Preston Douglas Boyer was a rare treat. Fresh from Fashion Week, the young self-styled entrepreneur exudes the cool confidence of all the Houstonian greats: firmly rooted in the H and ready to take on the world. Sitting with Preston and his production manager Harry Patterson, the triumphant underdog tale echoed shades of the greatest of all Houston exports: Beyonce. Always stay humble, the best revenge is your paper.
