April Fool’s joke, it ain’t. Make sure you mosey on down to your local newsstand this month to pick up Bitch Magazine’s latest, the Primal Issue; not only because it is generally an awesome publication, but a certain independent Canadian fashion magazine (hint: it’s us) gets a shoutout on the Bitch List! Writes Ashley McAllister, “[WORN is] for the fashion diehard who’s fed up with the usual glossies.” A definite honour, considering the overall influence Bitch has had on us (and their Style issue has definitely made its rounds amongst the Wornettes).
We had an inkling that Ms. Sassy herself might have already been familiar with WORN — fact: an image of our second issue showed up in a Montreal shopping guide in an old issue of Jane (ten points to any reader who can track it down and send us a scan). However, that didn’t stop us from freaking out when we realized she picked our very own Editor-in-Pants Serah-Marie as one of her style picks for Say Media’s 100 influential voices. She describes WORN as “where fashion and feminism kiss and make up” — and we’re in good company, seeing as other picks include WORN Crush Laia Garcia, and past contributors Tavi Gevinson and Garance Dore.
