 Kicking things off…

For those of you out there who don’t know me, my name is Charlotte Benz. I am a Sophomore at Kenyon and I hail from San Francisco, CA. I’m extremely passionate about culture and how clothing structures, shapes, and represents a cultural and an individual identity, as well as how that identity is conceived and communicated through personal style. It is for this reason that I want to document the variety of aesthetics present in Gambier, OH. “The Bias Cut” will aim to capture and celebrate the vibrant culture of the Kenyon College community, expressed through individual clothing choice and personal creativity campus-wide.

To “cut along the bias” is an expression used in sewing, and refers to a technique in which one cuts diagonally across the grain of the fabric. The result of this cut is stretch, offering a more dynamic shape and producing a more versatile base from which to create.

Ultimately, I find the people here inspiring and I am extremely excited to meet, interact, and share with the community here, through a medium I love.
