Calling All Cool Kittens: The Black Cat Ball Is Coming

On Saturday, November 23, WORN Fashion Journal will get your inner kitten out of the alley and onto the dance floor with our Black Cat Ball. Bring out your best ball style in black and white and watch as fashion comes on little cat feet. Bring a date or just walk on your wild lone.


If luck is a lady (or at least not a jerk) you’ll get a shot at our raffle. We’ll be offering purrecious prizes from:

The Beguiling
The Believer
Broken Pencil
Buy Olympia
Canadian Art
Come As You Are

…and more!

Tip the scales with extra raffle tickets for just $1. Want to frolic with fellow felines? Our cat ear headbands will have you meowing for more.



And when you’re done with the madness, move onto the magic. We predict you’ll get your whiskers in a twist with an eclectic mix of highly danceable oldies and favourites with WORN’s own Teddy the K.

WORN Fashion Journal Presents: Dressed as in a Painting Launch

Join us at Type Books for an evening of fashion book fun

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.
