What is The Lexington Line?
The Lexington Line is LIM College's student magazine, and it covers fashion, beauty, culture, and life at LIM. All work is written and edited by students. In addition to the online magazine, a print edition is published each semester. The Lexington Avenue subway line—the 4, 5, 6—runs down the east side of Manhattan, and it is the line that many students take to get from our dorm at 3rd Avenue and 97th Street to our academic buildings in midtown. The magazine, like the college, is situated in the nerve center of the fashion capital of the world, and it will serve as your line for all things fashion and all things LIM.
More generally, the goal of The Lexington Line is to give students a chance to publish their original writing and photography while engaging with New York City and the fashion industry at large. Students are presented with opportunities to meet and interview industry professionals, review products, get experience with social media marketing, and develop writing and reporting skills.
How do I submit?
If you are a student at LIM College, you can submit original writing or photography by filling out our Digital Content Google Form. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
