I Love What You’re Wearing

Sam Mendoza (COM’08) analyzes BU’s spring style


It’s true that Boston University’s well-honed fashion sense takes a dive in winter — after all, when walking to class means slogging through a knee-high snowdrift, sweatpants become a necessity. But at the first sign of spring, BU students reach deep into their closets to show off the warm-weather fashions that have been lurking there since last fall.

Clothes designer Sam Mendoza (COM’08), a senior advertising major who sells his designs on Newbury Street, hit the streets on a recent sunny day to check out and critique the spring fashions along Commonwealth Avenue.

    loved this, mostly because of the ending (crotch!)… although i don’t know about all the clothes featured (aack, i’d never wear yellow shoes!) i do enjoy a little light content now and then. thanks!

    I feel like I probably looked hot the day this was filmed… like, hotter than the people in the video… my sundresses are better than a boring navy shirtdress from gap.
