‘Edgy’ Styles at Friends [Podcast]

I’m jealous of people who dress the way they want, without worrying what others might think. Where do they get their confidence? In this podcast, I ask students with some of Friends School’s most unique styles.

Senior Alex Rugg stands beneath Senior Emily Flavin’s art major final project. Alex has a distinctive style that I really admire.

People who dress ‘edgy’ or ‘opium’ in the Friends community face many misconceptions, from being gay to being a rule-breaker. But honestly, I’m a little bit envious of them. So I interviewed some of the students with my favorite alternative styles, about where they get their confidence from, and how people have reacted to their looks.
