Walk it Out Multicultural Fashion Show celebrates culture across the world

Featuring performances from Latin America, Africa, South Asia, East Asia, LGBTQ+, and Hip Hop groups, the Walk it Out Multicultural Fashion Show aimed to make culture fun.

Chatter hummed through the Iowa Memorial Union’s Main Lounge as people filtered into the room. Students, parents, and children took their seats as they waited for the stage to fill with performers.

I’ve been stealing her clothes, bags and jewelry for as long as I can remember and incorporating them into my own wardrobe. I even got caught trying to bring some of her items to college with me (my mission was unsuccessful). I love the idea of coordinating jewelry because it’s a way to bring everyday sentimental value to both of our looks. It also saves us from being too matchy-matchy and doubles our options (because we obviously still swap pieces).

Coordinating jewelry, especially in a mother-daughter sense, doesn’t need to feel like
