Ave Wornette


I was born in Honolulu and spent most of my childhood in the desert of southern Arizona. I’ve lived all across Canada, eventually settling in my hometown of Ottawa. I’m studying geology at Guelph, but it was my interest in the world of fashion, art, and creativity that brought me to the big city, and to WORN. I love all sorts of fashion and culture, and my personal style is still evolving (kind of like a Pokemon). Movies and music are a big inspiration to me, and I love everything from the doe-eyed heroines of David Lynch to the bad girl attitudes of early 90s hip-hop video vixens. When I was a baby, my mom used to hang my dresses on the wall and let me pick which one I wanted to wear – I still love playing dress up while I choose outfits (oh, for a futuristic revolving closet like Cher’s from Clueless!). I’m so excited to be an intern here at WORN, this summer is going to be awesome!

Current Inspirations

The Considered Ensemble
Instead of street style photos, people describe their outfits and you just imagine them. I love it! Even though you don’t see the actual clothes, it feels a lot more personal.

“In Her Closet” at Modelinia
For those who have dreamed of closets stocked with glorious designer clothes, here’s a little sartorial inspiration – this video series peeks into the wardrobes of models.

What I Wore Today (Drawings)
A collection of daily outfit drawings instead of photos. The aspect of artistic style adds a whole new facet to the clothes, and the person – an outfit you might not look twice at in a picture can be a beautiful sketch or adorable cartoon.

Mr. Newton
I like the way this guy describes his life. Every day is impossibly glamourous and there is no attempt at modesty, it’s great. He has a very distinct voice, both in text and in his consistently gorgeous street style photos.

Selleck Waterfall Sandwich
Exactly what it sounds like. Eat your heart out, Hercule Poirot, there’s a new mustache in town. And it’s accompanied by a variety of sandwiches and water features.

  1. Welcome Ave. I quite like your links, especially The Considered Ensemble. It is like a bank of characters that could be the starting point for a little play or story

  2. I was born and raised in Kitchener, Ontario. Now I live and work in Toronto. The end.

    Just kidding. Well, no, it’s true. My point is, your pre-Toronto background = amazing. You lucky, lucky girl. Welcome to the team, Pardner. I hope you understand why I’m calling you Pardner. If not, please ignore me.

  3. I love how you’re trying not to laugh in the first pic. “Selleck Waterfall Sandwich” was the most random thing I’ve seen in a while hahahah
    yay for interns!

  4. OMG – the Considered Ensemble RULES. I’m not really such a fan of outfit blogs, but the notion of not having any pictures is BRILLIANT. Thanks for that!

  5. Fine web page, By the way a book mark to your story at Christian Dillstrom’s list of recommended sites, you must be doing a cool job as mobile and social media marketing whiz is pointing towards you!
