Hear how they brought their creativity to life!
Vistamar School FIDM Fashion Club Co-Presidents, Alex Nakahira and Daisy Davila, catch us up on their online fashion magazine and what they’ve been up to this past school year.
How did you get involved with FIDM Fashion Club?
Alex: It’s our second year as FIDM Fashion Club Co-Presidents; we started the club junior year because there weren’t any extracurricular activities at our school related to fashion. After two years, we have watched the club grow in size and creativity.
What are some fun activities you did this past year?
Daisy: Our most long-term project was creating an online fashion magazine. On a smaller scale, we make videos related to fashion in our school community, such as “What High Schoolers are Actually Wearing,” “What High School Teachers are Actually Wearing,” and “What High School SoundCloud Rappers are Actually Wearing.” We show these fan favorite videos at our school assembly called Morning Meeting. For our actual club meetings, the topics can range from lighthearted to more serious, such as the Met Gala and prom, but also Victoria’s Secret and the ethics behind their brand.
How did the awesome Vistamar FIDM Fashion Club online magazine come about?
Alex: When we first created the club, we envisioned us doing a long-term project. Our most dedicated members all contributed to this magazine, from writing articles and taking photographs to modeling and creating mood boards. One group in particular recreated the Marc Jacobs’ Daisy advertisements and was a favorite among our school community—one teacher even printed a photo of it and hung it on the wall of their office!
What are the most rewarding parts of being in a FIDM Fashion Club?
Daisy: Being in a club where everyone shares the common interest of fashion is rewarding within itself; the meetings tend to be uplifting and inclusive. As leaders, it’s enriching to talk to and get to know members of the school community through this club.
