Posted in Beauty Blast by SMUstyle on March 8, 2011

Fancy Tibi’s feminine and fun designs?  Prefer Bobbi Brown’s al natural approach to make-up? Well you’re in luck because the fashion and beauty stars have aligned — Tibi has released a collaboration with make-up maven Bobbi Brown.

SMU Senior Stefanie Dasher, who happens to also be Tibi’s Regional Retail Coordinator, is hosting a shopping event this Thursday at Saks Fifth Avenue in the Dallas Galleria. Shop the in-store spring 2011 Tibi looks and test-out the new Tibi for Bobbi Brown makeup palette with complimentary touch-ups by on-hand Bobbi Brown artists. The music will be bumping in the Tibi section of the store and special gifts (Tibi of course) will be awarded with purchase.

Fashion Insider: SMU Fashion Media Minor Info Session

Posted in Fashion Insider by SMUstyle on March 8, 2011

I’m sure by now, if you are a fashion-obsessed SMU student like myself and a lot of our readers, you’ve heard about the new minor on campus — Fashion Media. Although the exact details of the minor haven’t been fully revealed, (we’re assuming some combo of photography, j-school and art history classes), rumors of the long-awaited addition to the university’s curriculum  have been circulating circa September of last semester.

Good news:  All of your questions about what SMU has in-store for its first “fashion”-titled degree will be answered when we return from spring break. The faculty that is spearheading the new program’s course-load is hosting an information session on Friday, March 25 at 2pm in the journalism school’s Convergence Newsroom also known as Umphrey Lee 284.
