understanding of her fashion
type.
Also imagination in manag
ing a clothes budget; a workable
wardrobe plan; individuality in
her use of colors, accessories;
a suitable campus look (she’s
in line with local customs); ap
propriate — not rah rah — look
for off campus occasions.

meets these qualifications wiU

ners from hundreds of colleges
in the United States and Cana
da for top honors in the GLAM
