Lucie Biros prides herself on being unique.

She works with corsetry, leatherworking and outerwear —sensibility has never been a force behind her work.

“I either do things that are really practical or not practical at all. There’s no middle ground,” Biros said.

The Minneapolis native graduated from the University of Minnesota with a bachelor’s degree in apparel design and a minor in retail merchandising in 2013.

    The flowers are budding and so should your style. Spring is just around the corner, and the new season is a reason to boost your fashionability.

    “Sun’s out, guns out” is not an excuse for bro tanks and chubbies. You’re better than that. The following wardrobe staples toe the line between trendy and classic, and while they’re fashionable now, they’ll still look good five to 10 years down the road.

When in doubt, it’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed for any situation.

Jeans and a sweatshirt in the office just won’t cut it. Now is the time to start building a professional wardrobe.

Whether you already work in a business setting or are gearing up for meetings and interviews, college is the time for integrating work-friendly fashion.

This doesn’t mean buying matching suit sets. A handful of pieces can easily be added into any existing wardrobe and then mixed and matched to create professional looks.

Last month, the Minnesota Daily hosted its first-ever fashion showcase called “Project Headline” in collaboration with University of Minnesota student group FAB: Fashion and Business.

The event in Rapson Hall put the creations of two students, Shengjie Li and Marissa Lynch, against each other. Challenged to meld fashion and news in a literal sense, both designers created garments out of fabric and newspaper.

Part-time jobs are a part of the college experience — working as a barista in a coffee shop or an assistant in a research lab — but for some, it’s a little less typical.

They’re working it in the classroom and on the runway.

Ignite Models and University of Minnesota students Emily Gernes, Meghan Rook and Gabby VandenAvond explain their experience breaking into the industry, the job’s stressors and what they hope to pursue in the future.
