The past 2 years, our fashion merchandising students created and published 'Manifest,' a fashion magazine.

"Created for the students and by the students, this magazine is not just a compilation of trends; it is a testament to the creativity, passion, and ingenuity of the students at Adrian College.

Fashion, as we believe at Manifest, is not just about the clothes you put on; it's the skin you decide to wear every day. With this philosophy in mind, our magazine was crafted to open the eyes of Adrian College students to the vast possibilities within our fashion department.

This magazine would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of the students involved. We extend our gratitude to every individual who invested their time, energy, and creativity into making this magazine a reality. From the writers and editors to the stylists and photographers, each contribution has played a crucial role in shaping ManifestMagazine. A special acknowledgment is owed to our models, who generously lent their talents to help bring our vision to life." -- Madisyn Harris '24
