I’m a Writing Seminars and Psychology major in the class of 2024. I’m interested in the intersections of pop culture and fashion — how stylistic symbols are encoded and recontextualized through different cultural moments. I love androgynous, deconstructed clothing and I own way too many corduroy jackets.
Fashion has always been my outlet and escape from any sort of stress. For most of my life, fashion has given me a mode to express myself and not overly analyze or think; it feels natural. Writing for Marque allows me the opportunity to embrace the more creative, artistic side of myself and not solely define myself as a pre-med, STEM student.
Hello everyone! My name is Mahalia and I am a writer/editor for Marque. To me, fashion is an expression of who I am and who I want to be. It is a tool to better represent each of our unique selves and helps us feel more comfortable in our own skin. Similarly, I love using writing as a creative outlet and a means of articulating myself. Sometimes we find ourselves misunderstood or struggle to have a voice in society but with writing and fashion, I can be heard – so join us and listen to the collective voice of Marque Magazine!
Hello! My name is Alyssa Kattan, and I’m a writer and editor here at Marque. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, which is one of my favorite places to be. Fashion and style are platforms for me to display who I am in a way that people can engage with; it’s a vehicle for conversation and community.
Fashion and writing are my two favorite forms of creative expression, so I’m grateful that Marque has given me the opportunity to combine these two interests.
I’m a Molecular and Cellular Biology major, and a Math minor from India. I love fashion because it can be personalized and it’s such a unique form of expression, the same as writing! I’m also a trained Kathak (an Indian classical dance form) dancer, and I love cooking and working out!!!
Hi everyone! I’ve always loved fashion and style, especially as I started to experiment with new styles and looks. I believe fashion is such a key part of identity, especially during one’s formative undergraduate years. I love that Marque gives me the opportunity to meet others who care about fashion, and think deeply about what fashion trends mean on a larger scale. Writing for Marque Magazine serves as a creative outlet for me, and I hope that it each issue has the same effect for all of our readers!
