In 2006, three Northwestern students sitting in a Jeremy Piven speech in Pick Staiger came up with an idea for a new magazine to bring fashion to Evanston. The first issue of STITCH launched six months later. Their vision of STITCH to bring a little bit of glamour to the community twice a year. In the first letter from the editor, Joyce Lee laid out the philosophy, “to dedicate and devote STITCH to all the beloved members of the Northwestern community, whether they are fashion neophytes or style savants.”
Over the past decade, we have grown from a bi-annual, seven-person operation to 70 students producing five issues a year and five online stories a week. But the mission remains the same. We’ve added a podcast, a newsletter, mutlimedia content, shoots at the Art Institute and parties at The Block Museum, but ultimately we’re focused on being a creative outlet for the sartorially inclined. As an entirely student-run organization, we stretch the boundaries of student writers, makeup artists, models and event planners.
