It’s not often in people’s lives they get the chance to make a real difference in our profession. They try, but often come up short or lack the motivation to begin in the first place. Assistant Professor of Athletic Training and Doctor Christianne Eason is not one of these people.
Doctor Eason is one of a few Massachusetts athletic trainers heading up a bill to make their profession more accessible. “Athletic trainers are healthcare professionals,” said Eason.

On Nov. 5, the Fashion Styling and Photography Club held a Vintage Clothing Sale in the Arnow Campus Center, where second-hand clothing worn in the clubs’ October photoshoot was up for grabs. This occasion was overseen by Fashion Styling President senior Madison Paloski, senior Vice President Sara Nahoun and senior Treasurer Brianna Serio.
Paloski, a fashion communication major, created the Fashion Styling Club on campus in the spring of 2019. It now has over 150 members.
“We are a club on campus that puts on monthly photoshoots and send [the photos] off to publications and magazines. It just gives an excuse for students to use their work for portfolio pieces. So far we’ve been published in Cape Cod Magazine, Online Italian Vogue and Vulkan Magazine,” said Paloski.
Since all of the Fashion Styling Club’s clothes are from Savers, “After editorial, we wanted to be able to repurpose the clothes and not throw them away because fashion is such a waste. So, we wanted to resell them and make money for our club to keep putting on the editorials that get published in magazines and allow job opportunities for students at Lasell,” said Paloski.
Before the members of the club had finished setting up for the event, there was already a line of people eager to get their hands on the clothes that the club had on sale. Some things students were able to buy were clothes and some donated vintage jewelry with pieces Professor Catharine Weiss generously put in the clothing sale.
Some of the clothing that was displayed for sale included jackets, shoes, shirts, and pants with brands such as Ralph Lauren and J. Crew. The club researched the clothing and its brands, styles and saleability to determine accurate pricing for the pieces.
The Fashion Styling Club only has clothing sales after its monthly photoshoots. Providing various types of clothing, Lasell students are able to make each piece fit into their own style.
