Storm Style is a WYHS publication focused on fashion and lifestyle while staying true to the Jewish guidelines of modesty. WYHS students and faculty write articles about a variety of fashion topics, from the latest trends to the hottest accessories. Although this publication has just begun, the editors are excited that it is growing quickly. Bailey Frohlich, the Highlites Writing Editor, sat down with Storm Style editors, Emma Harris ('16), Daniella Cohen ('15) and Emily Firestone ('15) to learn more about Storm Style.
Bailey Frohlich: What inspired you to create Storm Style?
Storm Style Editors: We have some great publications at WYHS that appeal to the academic interests of the students, but we thought we could really use a more social-oriented publication which could take the mind off of school to get a brief escape. We really wanted to do something different than the other publications. We try to make Storm Style relevant to the students and give them advice that they can actually use.
BF: What do you feature and write about in the publication?
SSE: We started with only a few sections like "Runway to Hallway," Letter from the Editor, Trends, and Lifestyle. We have also added DIY, Beauty, and Accessories sections. We hope to add even more sections in the future.
BF: How do you come up with the fashion advice?
: Most of our articles are written by the Storm Style team. They come up with ideas and research the content for the article. Many of us use websites like style.com
(Women's Wear Daily, a.k.a "Fashion Bible"). We also draw inspiration from various fashion magazines and blogs to find the latest fashion trends.
BF: What are your future plans for Storm Style?
SSE: We hope to expand the content and sections of the publication. We also hope to get more students involved in the production of the publication and more students to read it and love it as much as we do. Storm Style has so much potential for growth!
BF: What do you hope to contribute to the WYHS student body with Storm Style?
SSE: We really appreciate the value of self-expression through fashion and we hope to spread this excitement to other students at WYHS. We hope to inspire students to look good and feel good every day while staying true to our religious beliefs. We want to make Storm Style the best it can be so that everyone can truly enjoy reading it.
