Chelsea Wornette here: I’m the new Events Intern at Worn who will ensure that your experience at our parties is a great one.
For the last few years since I graduated high school in Calgary, I’ve been in and out of colleges searching for my passion. After classes in Theatre, Creative Writing and Journalism, I have finally found my passion at Humber College for their Fashion Arts program and in the offices of Worn. I love Toronto and since I’ve moved here have worked in numerous photo shoots, volunteered to dress models at the Bridal Expo and LG Fashion Week, and helped coordinate events at the Blue Jays games, Meagan’s Walk Charity Gala and CBC’s Royal Canadian Air Farce.
I don’t watch a lot of TV but I love the Turner Classic Movie (TCM) channel. I get tips from Ingrid Bergman, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Katharine Hepburn, Doris Day and Elizabeth Taylor. I’m still searching for the man of my dreams: Cary Grant.

Nothing more fashion inspiring than our history (and art of course).
Great photographs and cinematography.

Wanderlust and cosmic dust…for the hippie in me?
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…
