Announcement from Molly Mastin, fourth year Fashion Merchandising student and 2015-2016 Fashion Editor for the Little Red Book, UGA's first and only fashion publication:
We would absolutely love to have as much involvement as possible this upcoming school year. We welcome students from all colleges who have a passion for fashion and/or writing. The Little Red Book is a great place to get plugged in for FACS students as well. Typical activities members can choose to partake in are: styling, editing, writing, photography, creative directing, and much more.
There are still some positions to be filled within the organization, so this would be a terrific opportunity for incoming freshman and transfer students to get involved right away.
We will hold our first meeting on Tuesday, September 8, at 7:00 p.m. in Dawson 116. I am also glad to answer any questions and can be easily reached by email at MollyMastin@uga.edu.
