two + seven = you + fashion
two + seven is a fashion collective website that unites all things à la mode. The goal of two + seven is to showcase unique, up-and-coming designers, photographers, models, artists and influencers through exclusive feature interviews and content. Trend posts, news, and other style-influenced content unite with two + seven’s exclusive features to create a community for fashion professionals and fashion followers to read.wear.repeat.
It all began in the homely dorms of Alumni Hall at a little college on the corner of 7th Avenue and 27th Street here in New York City.
Enter two + seven: a blog inspired by the undeniably unique styles and fresh attitudes of the students attending the Fashion Institute of Technology. What started simply as a class assignment quickly grew into an exciting showcase of student street style, campus trends, and all things fashion. Named after the school’s midtown location, two + seven provides a distinctively personal approach to fashion that engages not only FIT students, but all style mavens and fashionistas alike.
Post-graduation, two + seven has transformed itself into a broader outlet of expression, encompassing topics from current trends to newsworthy events, op-eds, DIYs and more. As Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” And this is only the beginning.
Oh hey there, we’re the two + seven duo—the ladies behind the blog!
