One More Week to Be a Wornette!

WORN is looking for a few good interns. Will it be you?

wornfashionjournal_beawornette

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.

Seriously, come.

Be a Wornette!

WORN Fashion Journal is on the hunt for some stellar new interns! We are looking for a few exceptional editorial, photography, graphic design, styling, and publishing interns to begin this fall. If you’re a creative, reliable, hard-working individual with a dedicated passion for learning the ropes, and you like snacks or cats, you may just be the right fit for our downtown office.

Why choose WORN? We are an independent print publication dedicated to offering a unique and inclusive perspective on fashion, with a readership expanding dramatically throughout Canada and internationally. We are increasingly recognized by fashion lovers, vintage hounds, academics, and artists as a truly unique and smart magazine for people who want more fashion and less fluff.

WORN is committed to showing a wide range of beauty, one that includes diversity of culture, subculture, gender identification, sexuality, size, race, ability, and age. We believe that our Wornettes represent this commitment, and highly encourage everyone with an interest in the cultures, subcultures, histories, and personal stories of fashion to apply for our internships.

Our intern positions offer valuable opportunities for those interested in fashion and publishing. Because WORN is a small magazine, our interns work alongside our editors, writers, and graphic designers, helping with real tasks (never fetching extra-hot soy lattes) and getting a chance to show their stuff in a creative work environment. Our interns frequently graduate to WORN staff positions, but everyone is a Wornette for life.

(Interested? Click here for applications and more information about available positions.)

Applications are due by the stroke of midnight on September 27, 2013.

Valentina, Signing Off…

Chronicles of a Lady Wornette

Salutations, lovely readers of Worn, I’m Valentina. I’m also known as Lady V, Lady Ventino, or as I have newly dubbed myself, Lady Wornette. I was the babe of the Wornette intern troop this summer. Here at WORN they want to get some younger blood involved so I was the inaugural guinea pig for what a summer internship would be. I’m 17 and about to go into my last year of high school back in Hamilton. This summer I came in for a total of 8 days spread over two weeks, lending a hand around The House of WORN. I packaged and shipped magazines, shadowed meetings, came up with and contacted future crushes, and basically wandered around the world of WORN. I go to Westdale Secondary back in Hamilton, I’m a French fry* who has high ambitions and likes to travel a lot. The new internship that I eagerly tested out is aimed at high school kids who don’t have the time to do a full internship. I’m completely smitten and I’m hoping that there won’t be any obstacles stopping me from coming back in to full Wornette duty next summer when I might be going to university in Toronto. I’m going to study journalism and hopefully do an exchange in a fanciful French-speaking country. I’m also interested in pursuing a master’s and living for a year or two in Japan teaching English.

Things I dislike the most are inconsistent bigotry and dirty nails.

1. Dropsnap This street style blog is excellent sartorial sustenance for anyone who’s as keen on Japan as I am, or anyone else who’s interested in quirky people with good taste.

2. Frou Frouu This blog is run by a gal named Nadia. I like her choices in clothing and her well shot outfit pictures.

3. Daddy Likey Winona, like WORN, is fond of fashion haikus and is in fact quite hilarious.

4. French Ghosts This girl is the ray of hope that Hamilton isn’t completely devoid of creative people with a sense of style.

5. The Stylish Underground A nice photo collection of stylish people from countless times, professions, and places.
