Who We Are

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.

Our Values

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.

Teams

CREATIVE

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.

ART

We are post-production: we select, edit, and lay out photos for the final magazine.

PHOTOGRAPHY

We photograph and search for visual storytellers to document our products and processes. We work hands on at photoshoots, behind the scenes, street style campaigns, and with online content. Camera gear required, experience recommended.

BEAUTY

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.

EDITORIAL

We are charged with curating the editorial content of all print and online media. We are looking for writers interested in creating engaging content.

STYLING

Our team conceptualizes and executes photoshoots by working with creative teams to collaborate on visuals, to embody the concept through looks. We source apparel, shoes, accessories, prepare models, and engage in all things production.

BUSINESS

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.

MARKETING

We share compelling original content on digital platforms to engage and expand our audience. Through social media and merchandise, we establish Thread’s branding and strengthen our presence on campus and beyond.

WEB

We connect all aspects of Thread through our online platform. We continue to add new content and design features that correspond with our tangible magazine and strive to promote Thread online while also providing a new lens into our publication.
