functional design I had access to a thermal camera and the body scanner to get exact measurements and body temperatures for a medical prototype project The project was a functional design band made for elderly women to prevent candidiasis on their upper torso These thermal images helped me to pinpoint the area that needed the most attention on the torso It measures the amount of heat emitted from an object or person The top picture is of a woman in a tank top to reveal temperature data points The middle picture is of the final prototype The bottom set of photos is a body scanned image The body scanner collects 300000 data points in 12 seconds which results in a 3D image BUYIN I developed skill in retail competency to understan responsibility for pro ts an e1r vendor relationships Using

LI xx JOURNAL My journalism minor has allowed me to combine my fashion and writing skills It has also allowed me to broaden my creative horizons by experimenting with photojournalism as well I currently write for the Style and Arts amp Entertainment sections of CMU s allstudent led magazine wwwGrandCentralMagazinecom INSPIRED BY THE NATIVES While most trends come and go one trend has remained fashionable since the birth of the United States Native American inspired clothing and accessories pay homage to the original settlers of our country Ashley Karnowski studies this age old trend and suggests some simple methods for incorporating them into your wardrobe lf Pocahontas were to live in today s world I don t think she would have any problem fitting Traditional Native American clothing and other adornments have been the inspiration for many past and current trends These trends range from subtle accents like beaded earrings to obviously Native American inspired fashions such as fringed moccasins Native American style first entered mainstream fashion in the 60s during the hippie movement The headbands and beaded fringed vests worn by many young people were directly inspired by Native American tradition But even in today s fashion the image of America s first settlers can still be identified Throughout recent seasons we have seen a revival of the free spirited trends of the 3960s The image of layered maxi dresses hippie headbands peace signs and moccasins mirrors its original source Megan Conover a senior at Michigan State University has tested out this trend for fall quotI get a lot of complements on my Betsy Johnson moccasinsquot she said quotI bought them at the end of the summer They re so comfortable and go with anything in my closetquot It s easy to pick up the inspired style of Native Americans The hand made intricately beaded jewelry feathers bright colors and braided hair are beautiful and bold quotI wanted to be a Native American for Halloweenquot Central Michigan Universityjunior Ali Foster said quotI liked the fun beaded jewelry and feather accessories that are popular right now sol knew I would be able to wear those things again even after Halloweenquot But as you dip into this fashion make sure you do so in moderation and not all at once The look is eye catching but too much of it can become gaudy Since this trend has revived many designers have sent their models down the runway hoping to achieve a free spirited modern and trendy image Matthew Williamson and Anna Sui are two of the best interpreters of Native American style Williamson used free flowing silk bright colors and beads around the waist and shoulders to grab attention For fall Anna Sui designed tribal inspired couture using exotic looking mixed prints and colors a lot of embroidery feathered headbands and all things fringed If you can t afford looks directly from the runway there are still many ways to follow this trend You can find moccasins at many different department stores Claire s has trendy jewelry with feathers and beading to add a little accent to your outfit Or if you have an eye for design create your own Native American inspired jewelry It s a cheap and simple way to have bright and unique accessories So go Native after all they were this land s first trend setters MAGAZINE sums mac Suhmam udsa amt Lagm m
