Below is the latest Look Book that each semester’s Apparel Merchandising and Management Interns create as a portfolio. They showcase inspirational styles in a “mood board” fashion to provide ensemble ideas for various occasions to wear for every season as well as detail information about the Clothes Closet and its events, collaborations, and achievements happening at that time. They also feature student models that attend Cal Poly Pomona wearing clothes found in the Clothes Closet and student testimonials of the impact the Clothes Closet has had on them.
