Ladies & entlemen, say 'hi'
A quick look at thepeople who struck those poses
he Garden of Eden.
Whatever one's personal beliefs, the name
conjurs up certain images. Lush green trees,
animals scurrying on the ground and through
the trees, warm golden rays of light and fruit.
And come this time of year, as winter's snow melts, it
is an image all folks wish to experience. Spring officially
began Sunday, though many won't feel it is here until a
modern day Garden of Eden grows from the frozen
ground, when the green is back, the greyish slush is gone,
and the squirrels have lost weight. And in Ann Arbor, we
may get to experience this yearly phenomenon for two full
weeks, if we are lucky. After that, the heat climbs above
tolerable, the humidity threatens to steam clean your
clothing while you wear them and the sun's rays become
But when the glorious moment of actual meteorological
spring arrives, all peoples will abandon their self-imposed
hybernation and head for the outdoors, in all their personal
colors. From flannels to silk, from polyester to leather, the
fabrics people will wear distiguish themselves like the
budding flowers in the Diag.
That is what we tried to accomplish with this issue: to
show the different styles you'll see all around campus
once Mother Nature has worked her magic. And all the
fruit people may be eating. Remember, we're talking
Garden of Eden, here.
And to make this issue, those of us whose names
appear elsewhere on this page in the staff box received
help from many people. The most obvious help we received
was from the stores whose clothing you'll see on the
following pages. Their generosity and occasional patience
in lending their merchandise to us were vital to this issue.
Also, we received help from various Daily Advertising
Executives who helped direct us to stores which fulfilled
our wants and desires. Also we would like to thank stores
which offered their services, but for whatever reason, we
were not able to fully accept their generosity.
Not only did we require clothing for our Fashion Issue,
but we needed to find the proper locations in which to
shoot them. Different moods and different occasions
required not only the proper styles of clothes, but the right
backdrop. We found them, and made the most of them,
with the help of the following people and places:
Matther Botanical Gardens, Busch's Valu-land, t
University,.U-Club, Cranbrook Educational Community,
the North Campus Recreational Building, and Joanna &
Richard Friedman, whose bedroom we invaded early one
So we had the clothes and we had scouted out the right
locations. We even had models. One of the finishing
touches came from the proper hair styling for our models,
and to do that, we received on-sight help from Lora
Rosenbaum from Anneke's and Diana Ferrell and Rob
from A Cut Above, who provided their services in ti
name of making our models look marvelous.
And last but not least, there are the models. Without
them, the photos would have been of heaps of clothing
lying on the ground (and the stores would most assuredly
have loved that). One of the most amazing things about
these folks is the hard work they put in (and actually
getting up early on Saturdays), all the while working for
nothing but the satisfaction of a job well done (and getting
their picture in the paper is no small bonus). Je-Won didn't
even get a "Sports Illustrated Special"-type call to tellI
she was going to be on the cover. If you run into one of
them around campus, and like what you see here, feel free
to compliment them. And if you run into Kevin, you have
our permission to tell him how beautiful he is, dammit.
Enjoy the rest of the issue.
