a note from
Welcome! f.a.d. is the premier fashion, art and design publication at Horace Mann. Dont close the pages just yetthis is not a shopping magazine. We will review the fashion and art worlds and also create an outlet to display students own artwork. Writers and artists who contribute to f.a.d. treat fashion design, architecture and makeup as art forms like any other! You all know about Picasso and Monet, now we are here to bring artists such as Balen-ciaga, Chanel, and Frank Gehry into the spotlight. Hopefully after reading f.a.d. you will walk away with a new appreciation and awareness of art in all its forms. Everyone at f.a.d. has worked very hard to put to-gether this fall 2009 issue for the HM com-munity. Now enjoy!

Marc Jacobs has continued to ex-pand his success in the fashion industry; numerous celebrities, including Chloe Se-vigny, Sofia Coppola, M.I.A. and Victoria Beckham, have mod-eled his clothing for ad campaigns. His spring 2010 line is both dra-matic and feminine, featuring billowing fab-rics, ruffles, sequins and tulle. The looks are modeled with bal-let buns and dramatic makeup paired with elegant flats and san-dals, a huge departure from the edginess of the looks favored last season. Jacobs often makes allusions to his beginnings in New York City, drawing from the people and experienc-es he had first starting

Marc Jacobs has become one of the most influential and successful de-signers in the fashion industry, creating chic and innovative looks sold both in the U.S. and around the world. He designs for some of the leading brands in the fash-ion world, creating clothes and accesso-ries for Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, and Marc by Marc Jacobs. His designs vary with each season, ranging from soft and feminine looks to colorful and bold theat-ricality; his vision changes with each show to reflect his creative influences and his interpretations for the coming season. Marc Jacobs, though arguably one of the most inventive designers in the industry, had decidedly humble begin-nings. At an early age, Jacobs was taught to knit by his grandmother, a beginning step in the discovery of his aspirations as a designer. At 15 he began working at New York Citys renowned Charivari boutique, where he was introduced to Perry Ellis. From there, Jacobs entered the Parsons School of Design, where he produced a line of hand-knit sweaters for the boutique during his time as a student. Jacobs demonstrated his tal-ent and dedication as a designer while at the school, and in 1984 he was awarded the Perry Ellis Golden Thimble Award for his designs. Upon graduating from Par-sons, Jacobs began working for Perry Ellis, where he designed a grunge col-lection for the label that received con-siderable attention and acclaim in the industry; despite this, the collection led to his subsequent dismissal in 1993. Marc Jacobs launched his own la-bel soon afterward, employing Linda Evan-gelista and Naomi Campbell; the models were so supportive of his designs that they agreed to work for free. In the ensuing years Jacobs devoted his time to designs put forth on his label, producing his first col-lection of menswear in 1994. With his ac-claim as a visionary new designer came his appointment as creative director of Louis Vuitton in 1997; under his leadership the label launched their first ready-to-wear line.

Where did this modern fashion giant start out? by Jazmine Goguen (11)
out in the fashion industry. I like romantic allusions to the past: what I wore during my experimental days in fashion Its the awkwardness of posing and feeling like I was in, but I never was in. Awkwardness gives me great comfort.

style saga We all have to start somewhere. For me, genesis occurred in the Arts & Crafts shack at summer camp, where my 12-year-old hands crafted what I felt sure was a masterpiece. A bunch of multi-patterned fabric strips with an awkwardly placed pocket, lopsid-edly sewn together and drizzled with appalling puffy paint, was something I surveyed with the pride and joy of a new parent. A skirt had been born. At least, I boldly ventured to call it that. I couldnt wait to saunter through the halls of my middle school in that new garment, letting everyone know that I was singularly responsible for its invention. I would pair it with electric blue fishnets the same shade as my eyeliner, along with two com-pletely different shoes. This was my idea of fashion-savvy. Until 8th grade graduation, I excitedly stood each morning in front of my closet, wonder-ing what combination I would try to pull off that day. Later on, when I found out I would accompany most of my best friends to LaGuardia (a public high school for the arts), I figured not much would change about my dressing hab-its. However, my home answering machine foretold a different fate. Five days before what would have been my first day at LaGuardia, a message from Horace Mann announced that I had been accepted. My mother made it clear that I was not turning down the offer. Refusing to conform to what-ever vague notion I had of the way Horace Mann students would dress, I stood in front of a full-length mirror on the morning of my first day and gave my outfit a final once-over. I cringe to
recall it now: below my hot pink shirt was an electric blue, polka-dotted skirt with tiers and lace trimming, buoyed up to Little-Bo-Peep-esque volume by a poofy tulle slipa glorified tutu. I smiled at my vintage finds and skipped out the front door of my apartment. As I quickly learned, I was not in Kansas anymore. Glares followed each swish and rustle of my skirt through Tillinghast. During the assembly at which new students were asked to stand, I reluctantly rose to my feet and wilted as all the eyes of judgment fell on my ensemble. I know my own paranoia was not wholly responsible, as peers later ventured to ask me, What the ---- were you wearing on the first day? Feeling like a character in a bad Disney movie, I succumbed to dull jeans and labels, trying to make friends. Im a senior now, and over the past few years, Ive started pushing boundaries again. While I no longer have any desire to wear an Ugg on my right foot and a Moon Boot on my left, and have not set aside time to sew in ages, Ive reestablished a semi-loyalty to my audacious little middle-school self. I can honestly say that Ive accumulated more compliments than glares thus far. As each protagonist in every Disney movie does, I have to deliver a predictable yet heartfelt moral. Here it is: Wear what you want.

Diane von fashion
A profile of the famous wrap dresss maker In 1972 the legendary Diane Von Furstenberg made her debut into the world of fashion. Her icon-ic wrap dress, as described by many sources, was the begin-ning of her successful career. She was born in Belgium in 1946 into a wealthy Jewish family, a year after the end of World War II. Von Furstenberg, then know as Diane Simone Michelle Halfin, attended the University of Geneva in Swit-zerland and studied economics. She met her husband, Prince Egon of Furstenberg, at the age of 18 and married him in 1969, to be divorced after just three years. They had two children together; a boy Alexander and a girl Tatiana. After she and the Prince split, Von Furstenberg moved to New York and was re-married to Barry Diller in 2001. Although her life was com-plicated, Dianes fashion career was booming from the time she introduced her line of wrap dress-es in 1972 that were to symbol-ize female power and freedom to an entire generation, according to dvf.com. This simple dress has transformed into a global luxury lifestyle brand. After this, she created the fragrance Ta-tiana, named after her daughter, which became an immediate ne-cessity for all women at
