Moda Magazine is the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s first and only life and style publication. It was founded in fall of 2011 by two UW students who saw the need for a publication of its kind on campus.
Moda strives to bring style to the forefront of our campus in an innovative and accessible way with both print and online content at modamadison.com. Our central sections are Fashion, Lifestyle, Social, Arts, and Men’s, which we cover on a local, national, and global scale. We are a passionate team of students who work to achieve a professional standard that inspires and influences our readers’ personal relationship with style.
In the three years since its launch, Moda has expanded dramatically. It has broadened its reach by adding social, arts and men’s sections alongside its existing fashion and lifestyle sections. It now staffs seven editors, two event planners, public relations coordinators, a creative director, a photography director, a layout editor, a financial director, and staff writers for each of its sections. It publishes daily online content that includes work by not only staff writers and editors, but also numerous contributing writers. It also produces one online Mini Issue each month, which includes content from each section as well as a main photo shoot.
Aside from online content, Moda publishes two print issues per year—one per semester—that are distributed throughout the UW-Madison campus and greater Madison community. It also hosts UW-Fashion Week (UWFW) each year, a week long event that includes speaking events and social gatherings, and culminates in the UWFW Fashion Show.
