FACT: Toasted bread is part of a nutritious breakfast. SECOND FACT: A toast is a speech you give at a celebration. THIRD FACT: The Toast is also a hilarious and smart website, run by two beautiful geniuses named Nicole Cliffe and Mallory Ortberg. FINAL, MOST IMPORTANT FACT: Every other Wednesday, you can read a healthy, celebratory column by Haley and Anna Wornette on The Toast!
Loose Threads has, so far, tackled the lessons learned by reviled and beloved pop cultural monuments like Fight Club and Sex and the City. Anna and Haley talked about the power of fashion in museums and the significance of Wendy Davis’s sneakers. Anna pulled the Vogue-iest parts of Vogue that ever did Vogue, while Haley provided some of her meanest beauty school dropout knowledge.
What’s next for Loose Threads, you ask? Let’s just say we’ve got a little something up our sleeve… *frantically searches sleeves for story ideas*
Wornettes can read Loose Threads every other Wednesday here.
In Dressed as in a Painting: Women and British Aestheticism in an Age of Reform, author Kimberly Wahl provides a lucid exploration of the interrelations between fashion, art, and aestheticism during the latter half of the nineteenth century.
On Friday, October 11, join Kimberly Wahl, WORN Fashion Journal, and Type Books for refreshments and conversation as we celebrate the release of Dressed as in a Painting. Wahl’s book is the first to focus exclusively on aesthetic dress and its various expressions in the visual cultures of Victorian Britain and will be a necessary addition for fashion libraries, fashion historians, and fashion lovers everywhere.

The deadline is fast approaching for applications for our fall/winter internship program. We’re looking for interns for all departments—editorial, graphic design, styling, and publishing. Are you a creative, hard-working individual with a deep love of fashion and unique ideas, different from what you can find in a mainstream fashion mag?
WORN is committed to creating a more inclusive space in fashion publishing, by profiling different subcultures, races, sizes, abilities, and ages. Our internships provide a hands-on experience in all departments, since we’re a fairly small publication. You’ll have the opportunity to work directly with our editors, designers, stylists and publisher in a way that you might not be able to at a bigger magazine. Your ideas will be heard, and you’ll never be asked to fetch anyone their lunch. Plus you have the added bonus of being part of the coolest little fashion magazine in Canada.
Applications are due in one week, on September 27th. Follow the link to the application, and come work with us on our spring issue.
