LIM College’s student-run magazine, The Lexington Line, is set to officially launch its Spring/Summer ’21 print edition on April 15 at 6 p.m. EDT. Inspired by the “light at the end of the tunnel” of the COVID-19 pandemic, hope is a recurring theme throughout this latest issue.
The students who created this publication put in countless hours on Zoom and produced the magazine while working almost entirely virtually. Editor-in-Chief Samantha James, in her first semester on the job, led staff meetings and adjusted to her demanding new role remotely.
Samantha elaborated on the issue’s theme, saying, “When we started planning out the magazine, we noticed more and more people seemed hopeful. With the rise in vaccine availability, COVID cases going down, and businesses reopening, we wanted this issue to embody that hope and the readiness of people to return to normalcy.”
A key opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience in media and publishing, The Lexington Line is a pillar of LIM College's Fashion Media major. The magazine presents chances to learn about all aspects of fashion media, including writing, editing, styling, forecasting, photography, modeling, marketing, graphic design, and more. Students on staff publish pieces on fashion, beauty, culture, and news year-round on the magazine's website. Each Fall and Spring semester, the team assembles a print issue.
The April 15 launch party is open to all. To receive the link to the event, RSVP here.
