Manhappenin’ Magazine is hosting its semi-annual party from 8 to 10 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 11 at 785 in Aggieville to release its Fall 2021 edition.
Allyson Eichman, senior in marketing and the marketing manager for Manhappenin’ Magazine, said there are a lot of fun activities to partake in at the release party.
“Every semester we have a release event that promotes our print edition, and it is just a fun time to get together, hang out with friends — and there is always a bar, so people can come get drinks,” Eichman said. “Also, we have vendors that come too.”
Eichman said several vintage sellers are attending the event this year, including Northeast Thrift, Kemp’s Closet and Vintage K-State.
Manhappenin’ Magazine’s theme for its fall edition is “Dreamscape,” and Eichman said Manhappenin’ wanted to create a magazine that is fun and light.
“A lot of our past editions touched on COVID and other heavier topics,” Eichman said. “We thought of the idea of daydreaming and how we can incorporate daydreaming into our theme and landed on Dreamscape. It incorporates a lot of light colors like light pinks and purples.”
Peyton Froome, sophomore in economics and journalism and copy editor of Manhappenin’ Magazine, added on, sharing more insight into the publication.
“It is going to be very dreamy and have a lot of bold colors because in the past we have done a lot of muted colors to keep up with fashion trends,” Froome said. “We have some recipes for fun drinks, highlights on some kids that go to K-State that are TikTok famous and we have an article about [Agriculture] students which we have not really done before.”
Those that attend the release party are encouraged to dress with the theme. Holly Delay, senior in strategic communications and editor-in-chief of Manhappenin’, said to dress in bright colors for the event.
“For the party, you can dress to the theme in pastel and bright colors, and fashion that reminds you of a fantasy,” Delay said. “But also dress in whatever you feel comfortable in.”
Delay said everyone should come out to the release party and hang out because the magazine is for the K-State community.
“Grab a magazine with your friends, grab a drink if you’re of age and just hang out and have fun,” Delay said. “The release party is meant to celebrate all the hard work we put into the issue, and we want everyone to have a good time. Even if you just stop by for a while, it makes all of us feel so good when a lot of people show up. This magazine is for the students and the community. Also, make sure to check out our vendors and sponsors’ tables — they have a lot to offer, and we are excited to have them.”
