Big man on campus: Providence, Rhode Island

We asked MR‘s summer interns to keep their cool-hunting instincts sharp with a fall 2012 Man On The Street: Campus Edition trend report. Amy Sciaretta, Fashion Merchandising major at Johnson & Wales in Providence, Rhode Island, turned her eyes and camera on a street fair packed with Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design students.

“I was surprised at how much fun they had with it,” says Amy. “Being in the Brown/RISD area I found guys with really creative style who gave really funny answers when we asked them about their ‘fashion philosophy.’ What was most different were their shoes, which I found to be the one item that really stood out in every outfit.”
