WORN Fashion Journal's Profile

About

WORN Fashion Journal is a print publication that comes out twice a year (once in hot weather, once in cold) based in Toronto, Canada. However, our content is not time or location specific. Since we do not report on trends or promote the newest items on the market, our content is as interesting and relevant today as it will be five years down the road.

But we feel something is missing: opinion and intelligent commentary that’s untainted by advertisers’ demands.

WORN discusses the cultures, subcultures, histories, and personal stories of fashion. We strive to embody a place between pop culture magazine and academic journal that opens new avenues in art and fashion theory by hovering where these two…

About

WORN Fashion Journal is a print publication that comes out twice a year (once in hot weather, once in cold) based in Toronto, Canada. However, our content is not time or location specific. Since we do not report on trends or promote the newest items on the market, our content is as interesting and relevant today as it will be five years down the road. Although we love and support Toronto fashion, we include content from all over Canada and the rest of the world. WORN hasn’t missed the fact that there are scads of fashion magazines out there. But we feel something is missing: opinion and intelligent commentary that’s untainted by advertisers’ demands.

WORN discusses the cultures, subcultures, histories, and personal stories of fashion. We strive to embody a place between pop culture magazine and academic journal that opens new avenues in art and fashion theory by hovering where these two ideas intersect, connecting with fashion scholars and artists. We pay attention to how what is worn is made, interpreted, transformed, disseminated, and copied.

OUR MISSION

* To show a wide range of beauty, one that includes diversity of culture, subculture, gender identification, sexuality, size, race, and age.

* To offer provocative thought on fashion and aesthetics in an accessible way.

* To refrain from polarizing fashion into concepts of “in” and “out,” or “good” and “bad”.

* To differentiate between personal style and the fashion industry, and recognize that the two don’t necessarily have to align.

* To answer, always and above all, to our readers and not our advertisers.

* To celebrate the universal appeal of fashion, outside of time and trend.

* To have a sense of humor, but not at anyone’s expense (with the notable exception of our own).

- Andrew Sardone, NOW magazine

“[WORN] is picking up Sassy’s brainy mantle”
- Nathalie Atkinson, National Post

- Shameless Magazine

“WORN blends the inventiveness of punk rock and the aesthetics of high fashion…Well done”

“WORN magazine calls itself a fashion journal. I call it a 44 page f*ck you to Anna Wintour.”
- Xtra

“I was enamoured with the personal tales, well researched articles and opinion pieces on a variety of subjects that with some historic or technical string are related to fashion, but are definitely unexpected, and in some cases unexplored.”
- Susie Bubble
