Who we are
The Thread Magazine is an independent student publication and the only fashion, lifestyle, and art magazine at Cornell. Thread represents a conglomeration of student-made fashion, art, photography, styling, and design. We publish an issue each semester and aim to showcase the interdisciplinary talents of individuals within the Cornell community through compelling visual and written storytelling.
Fashion is interdisciplinary
Thread is a fashion magazine that acts like a design organization, thought platform, and artistic collective. We look to explore and showcase the breadth of creativity at Cornell.
Thread doesn't have one look
Fashion encompasses many faces and we strive to do the same. We go beyond the boundaries of 'trendy' and 'stylish', using apparel as a medium of expression to mark cultural conversations.
Thread redefines beauty
We see hair and makeup as physical manifestations of human feeling, emotion and experience. Beauty is dynamic and multi-faceted.
Design with purpose
We translate visual inspirations into paper medium, evoking and enhancing thematic elements in every decision, making this magazine not only a publication but a work of art.
We are post-production: we select, edit, and lay out photos for the final magazine.
As the beauty team, we create and execute all makeup and hair looks for the publication. We are looking for not only makeup artists and hair stylists, but generally individuals with an artistic beauty perspective. Experience recommended but not necessary.
The Business Team manages the magazine’s finances by securing advertisements from local businesses and conducts alumni outreach. Additionally, the team plans the Launch Party each semester and member socials.
Creative Team is the idea engine of the magazine. We work to create a cohesive and enticing story for each issue and collaborate with Styling, Beauty, and Art teams to design dynamic photo shoots.
We are charged with curating the editorial content of all print and online media. We are looking for writers interested in creating engaging content.
The Marketing Team is responsible for the external communication of Thread, and is committed to sharing compelling original content on our digital platforms to engage and expand our audience. Through our work on social media and merchandise, we establish Thread’s branding and aim to strengthen our presence on campus and beyond.
We photograph, and in so doing, tie the publication together. We search for dedicated visual storytellers, looking to document both the product and the process. Photographers will work hands on at photoshoots, behind the scenes, with street style campaigns, and with online content. Camera gear required, experience recommended.
Styling Team brings the magazine to life by conceptualizing and executing each photoshoot. We work closely with creative teams to collaborate on a visual, thinking about how we can embody the concept through the look. We source apparel, shoes, and accessories, prepare models, and engage in all things Production.
Web content strategy team
The Web Content Strategy Team works to connect all aspects of Thread through our online platform. We continue to add new content and design features that correspond with our tangible magazine. We strive to promote Thread as a whole online as well while also providing individuals with a new lens into our publication.
