A new[ish] year means time for new resolutions, and let’s be honest — you aren’t actually going to eat more carrots or spend less time on tumblr anytime soon. Why not keep it real and resolve to support independent fashion publishing? If you haven’t picked up a copy of issue 11 yet, maybe this snazzy vid put together by Ave Wornette will convince you to finally check it out.
During a recent trip home, I brought along a copy of WORN issue 11. My grandfather, who claims he isn’t interested in fashion, couldn’t help but connect with the glasses glossary on pages 12 and 13. He took a photo wearing his own cateye-esque sunglasses, purchased in the 50′s – eat your heart out, Alexander Wang.
Greetings, loyal WORN readers! Do you remember that party we had to celebrate the launch of issue 11? You should, it was only three weeks ago. Anyway, Wornettes Haley, Valentina and Casie produced this video (filmed and edited by Daniel Reis) to commemorate the fun, so now you’ll never forget.
For those of you who can’t play the video right now because you want to keep up the illusion of working while at the office, we’ve uploaded the pictures to our flickr. So mosey on over there and flick away. Here are some highlights (bowties were popular, it seems):
The weather is getting colder, university students everywhere are freaking out over exams, and the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack has been playing nonstop here at the offices for the past week. This can only mean one thing: the holiday season is upon us. We know how much of a bummer it is to hang out in the basement of the mall this time of year (if you can help it), so for that Secret Santa of yours why not consider giving a WORN gift pack?
The scientific evidence supporting this decision is in:
Unlike a puppy, you don’t need to walk it and it won’t poop on your carpet.
The amount of content that comes in five issues will entertain for hours in a way that jazzercise DVDs never will.
We strive for timeless content, which means this gift will still be relevant once that Justin Bieber bobblehead is obsolete.
So awesome any other gifts you give just might pale in comparison.
