Ryerson is one of the most fashion-forward schools there is. We’re a mile from the Fashion District of Canada, some of our (current) students have had their clothes featured on international television, and we have two fashion programs. Two! That’s twice as many as any other university combined.
Naturally, this flair for high fashion has trickled down to the filthy casuals on Ryerson campus. RU Street Style, a relatively new (in that I can only click “load more” on their Instagram page a couple times) project created by a few Ryerson students who are interested in highlighting the natural beauty that inhabits our campus.
Who are the masterminds behind this project? What program/year are you in?
What inspired you?
Do you ever have people say “no” or respond negatively? If so, how do you deal with that?
Do you hope for this to continue post-grad? If so, how do you plan on passing the torch?
We are just taking the campaign one day at a time right now. We haven’t discussed continuing it on post-graduation yet but I think it will just depend on it’s success in this first year – it is still very new (only 2 months old).
What would you say the style for the average Ryerson student is? Do you see any trends coming or leaving?
A fairly large portion of the campus (myself DEFINITELY included) have no idea how to dress stylishly. Do you have any tips for these unlucky people?
You have a blog, and the content is identical to what’s shared on your Facebook page. Do you plan on doing something bigger with it? If so, what?
Some students who are featured on RU Street Style do not have Facebook so we have been copying the content to the blog to make sure they don’t miss out. In the future, we plan to continue featuring style stories and interviews with Ryerson students and grads.
If pretty people wearing pretty clothing is something you’d like to have more of in your life, make sure to keep up with RU Street Style! Their Facebook is available here, their WordPress here, and you can always follow them on Instagram and Twitter @RUStreetStyle!
