The seventh issue of 180 Magazine is now available on virtual newsstands everywhere. Students and faculty at the Academy of Art University produced the 230-page tome as part of the school's commitment to providing real-life experience for students, and the results are impressive. Inside the issue, you'll find 21 articles and editorials that highlight the fashion work —design, writing, styling, and photography— of students, both past and present. And you can focus on the content because there are no ads to interrupt the flow of stories, interviews, and high fashion spreads. The print version, with its oversize pages, can be ordered via the university. But for instant gratification, the full issue is available for the first time on iPad here.
