Style / Back to the new normal


Back-to-school has a new meaning this month as schools navigate this pandemic. Fashion almost seems frivolous in light of everything that’s going on, but it inspires and reminds us that there are still things that can make us smile. This back-to-school fashion spread was unique. These kids are resilient, and their positive attitude shows, even through their masks. Mang Park is the perfect setting for these cool kids to showcase clothing from a few of our favorite local boutiques. The 1990s continue to influence back-to-school fashion with wild prints, painted denim, and logo tees. The kids were within their “pods” during the shoot, and had a blast.
