This issue's visual vibe takes a sharp turn from last semester’s; in the spring, students played off glimpses of hope and light. This time around, everything assumes an edgier theme of “going dark” in a speculative post-pandemic world.
Students on this issue worked numerous hours on Zoom, as well as in-person in the magazine's new office in LIM’s Fifth Avenue building. With written content offering a mix of both fun and serious topics in the usual Fashion, Beauty, News, Lifestyle, and Culture sections, the imagery features isolated locations, dark clothing, and ominous feels.
Editor-in-Chief Samantha James, having now led production of her second issue, shares more about the theme: “As the planning for this magazine started, we knew we wanted to do something that’s never been done before. So, we started thinking of deserted places that still have some life left, and we felt like that represented ‘what could’ve been’ from this pandemic—something almost post-apocalyptic. The goal was to have fun and produce an edgier-looking magazine.”
The Lexington Line is a big part of the Fashion Media major at LIM College. The magazine and its website allow students to gain hands-on experience with writing, editing, photography, modeling, graphic design, and more.
The LIM community is encouraged to keep eyes on their LIM email for the launch event RSVP link!
