Hoot, There It Is: Columbia’s Awesome Student-Run Fashion Mag
Several of us on the Frisky staff were newspaper dorks back in college (like this is surprising), so we hold a fondness in our heart for school papers. Oh how the times, they are a changin’: Columbia students just put out the debut issue of a publication called Hoot, a glossy fashion journal that puts our inky campus crime blotter clips to shame. For starters, they’ve got Kelly Bensimon on the cover, which might seem like a weird celeb pick for Ivy Leaguers but, when coupled with the rest of the edgy reporting, shows how inclusive Hoot’s viewpoint is. Some other goodies: an article about fashion for Orthodox Jewish girls, a profile on North Korean denim line Noko (which we wrote about, as well), and a message from Teen Vogue editor-in-chief Amy Astley. Check out the entire issue on Hoot’s website.
