As another month begins, the students and faculty at Conestoga College are still killin’ it. Days get shorter and the temperature drops outside, but the ICONdors are still looking hot. Fall in love with the variety of styles found on campus this October.

Here are some of the fashion highlights of this week’s Fashion ICONdors:

“I don’t know,” said Peressotti. “I guess it’s pretty functional and I think it’s practical.”

Peressotti pulled off an alternative but professional style. His rolled up skinny jeans complement his boots. His button-up cardigan adds sophistication to his simple black T-shirt.

Raslovetzky enthused, “I just be myself and be out there!”

Raslovetzky’s geek-chic style was displayed through her Legend of Zelda dress. Her high socks and Dr. Martens tied together this fun look. Wearing a beanie and ear plugs, she looked cool and confident.

“I like matching colours and stuff,” commented Malcolm.

With a beaming smile, Malcolm was proud to be recognized as an ICONdor. By wearing a collared button-up over a Nike T-shirt and sweats, he turned an athletic look more casual, while keeping him comfortable.

“I don’t know! I kind of just see what I like on Instagram,” said Holley. “Whatever’s comfortable is what I put on my body and I take inspiration from other places.”

Holley’s ripped jeans and ankle boots served up some edginess to Conestoga’s hallways. Her three layers were functional and kept her warm for fall while still being stylish.

“Basically everything I’ve put on is to be more of a character than to actually wear clothing,” commented Brown.

Brown seemed to reminisce about the final days of summer with this bright and tropical look.  His mirrored sunglasses reflected his unwillingness to get ready for fall. Complete with a bottle of Fiji Water, Brown looked ready for vacation instead.

“You know what? My style is inspired by, I wear what I want to wear, when I want to wear it, ” stated Aube. “I say, if you’ve got clothes, you should wear them! If you’ve got great clothes, you should wear them! You should wear a prom dress to school if you would like to wear a prom dress to school! If that makes you feel good, then wear it.”

While Aube rocked platform all-over polka dot Converse shoes, her cardigan billowed around her perfectly. With an air of confidence, she brought power to a simple dress.

“I just kinda follow rappers,” said Zedo. “I like what they wear and I follow that.”

Zedo’s pastel long-sleeved shirt and ripped jeans made him seem laid back. His white All-Star Converse brought this look together. His eyebrow slit was lit.
