WORN wants you to GET PINNED at PIN UP, PARTY DOWN

On Friday, May 28, 2010 WORN Fashion Journal is launching issue 10 with a delightfully pointy celebration of one-inch wearable art.

Fasten your eyes on our display of 500 limited edition one-inch buttons designed by REAL artists (and assembled by real WORN staff).

This is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for: Stick it to a friend! A loved one! Stick it to fashion! WORN has been around for FIVE WHOLE YEARS. Celebrate with us and we’ll stick it to you!

Then show off your sharpest moves all night long, dancing to sassy, soulful songs from the ‘60s.

WORN: Coming Soon to a Retailer Near You

Pictured: WORN taking over Canada. Naturally.

Oh, what happy times are to be had here at our humble offices! Not only are we completing the final touches of a shiny new issue (our tenth, natch) to be out at the end of this month, we are also pleased to announce WORN will be available in new stores across the country. Find us gracing the shelves of such places including Waterloo’s Words Worth Books, Read’s Bookstore in Moncton and Fredericton, my own school’s York University Bookstore, and approximately a million other places (check to see if there is one near you!).

As always, if you are (or know of) an independent clothing or bookstore that you think should carry WORN, contact wholesale @ wornjournal.com. We aren’t just limited to selling in Canada – help us achieve world domination, one independent retailer at a time!!

Pin Up! Party Down!

Fancy pins? Would you like to illustrate one?

In celebration of the launch of our 10th issue, we are presenting Pin up, party down: an exhibition of wearables presented on wearables.

And here is where you come in…

We are reaching out to WORN readers for donations of one-inch button designs in the theme: something wearable. We will select designs from submissions with which we will create 1000 pins.

With every chosen design, we will create ten pins for us to sell, and ten pins that we will give to you.

Pins will be displayed and sold as limited editions at our Issue 10 launch party in May.

Money raised will go right back into our independent, volunteer-run publication, so that we can guarantee to be right back at you with Issue 11!

Would you like to submit a design?
