The Exeter Issue 2015 - 2016 Board.

The teenagers at Phillips Exeter Academy have some serious runway game. Mimicking the preppy style of a J.Crew catalogue, they sport couture items and mix and match prints with ease.

The Exeter Issue is an Instagram account that showcases the best dressed students at the most elite boarding school in America. Inspired by the viral Instagram account Humans of New York, The Exeter Issue features street portraits and interviews gathered on campus.


We spoke with The Exeter Issue's founder Rachel Luo, a junior, on the blog's inspiration.
