Esmé Wornette

Bonjou! My name is Esmé and I am one of Worn’s new editorial interns. I graduated from Etobicoke School of the Arts last year, and this is my first experience working at a fashion magazine.

I like to take my fashion cues from looking through trunks at my Grandma’s, watching British TVO and PBS shows (specifically those about small town police stations set in the sixties … Heartbeat anyone?), people watching and FT reruns. I also really enjoy the styling in Sofia Coppola and Wes Anderson (shout-out to Anna!) films. My friend Stef and I are recently began making a line of reconstituted vintage and second hand clothes, and working at Worn has been a constant inspiration. I also enjoy perusing online museum galleries of historical dress.

my current inspirations…
