Ever wonder why it seems like all the fashionistas hang out together? No, they’re not all just lost RISD students. It’s because students interested in fashion are coming together through their involvement in Fashion at Brown (aka F@B). According to its mission statement, F@B “is dedicated to bringing a fashion outlet to Brown students interested in all different aspects of the fashion world.” Aside from being the primary fashion outlet on campus—and, more generally, from making the campus a better-looking place—F@B  promotes local businesses and student artists. In case there’s a little Andrea Sachs post-new-Chanel-boots hidden inside of you, F@B is the best place to relish in style.

Opposite its Fashion Week in the spring, the group typically has a photo shoot in the fall to celebrate art and clothes. This year it took its shoots to a whole new level by shooting in the The Steel Yard. The local space usually serves as a place for metal working classes and workshops, music festivals, and at-risk youth programs, but in the hands of F@B, it became a unique ground for snapping chic looks.
