Where the runway meets the street

This time of year can be a stressful one for new grads. You’re unemployed, at the mercy of student debt collectors, and your parents have just officially cut off your finances (great timing, huh). But for Pratt Institute alum Isabel Hall, the post-grad blues will just have to delay itself indefinitely.

Last week, Calvin Harris (aka the don of the summer EDM anthem) dropped the visual for his Rihanna-collaborated single, “This Is What You Came For.” Despite its 23+ million views, the video isn’t really all that spectacular, though you may recall RiRi prancing about wearing a glittery grey jumpsuit in a cube basked in laser lights and CGI projections. Well, fun fact about said jumpsuit; it’s actually a piece which Hall designed for her senior graduate collection.

In a recent interview with Complex, Hall admitted that the jumpsuit’s cameo resulted after the Pratt graduate had interned for designer, and frequent Rihanna collaborator, Adam Selman, who recommended the piece to the singer’s stylist, Mel Ottenberg. Next thing you know, @badgalriri is strutting her stuff in one of the emerging designer’s outfits, making her one of the buzziest names in the fashion sphere as of late.
