Last weekend, Toronto’s Dovercourt House housed the liveliest gathering of stylish felines since the jazzy party scene in Disney’s Aristocats. And to celebrate the release of WORN’s 17th issue, one thing was purrfectly clear—everybody wanted to be a cat. It was a lot of things. It was a soiree. It’s here now, in memory only, until next year.

If there is one thing WORN knows how to do it’s, well, make a great fashion magazine. But if there’s another thing we know how to do, it’s without a doubt throw a killer party. And let’s say there’s this third thing we know how to do, and it’s love cats.
In anticipation of your unique desire to see those three things combined, we made this black cat-themed party to celebrate the release of our 17th issue JUST FOR YOU.
Please come to your party. Please feel encouraged to wear your best black and white to your party. Please bring your friends to your party. Oh, the memories you will make!
See you tomorrow, Saturday, November 23, at Dovercourt House (805 Dovercourt Road) at 9:00 p.m. $10 pre-sale tickets are only available until Friday, November 22, 2013 at 5pm, and at Type Books on Queen Street West until 7pm on Saturday November 23rd, so don’t purrcrastinate. Admission at the door is $15 and comes with the newest issue of the magazine. Once inside you may drink, dance, and participate in a wonderful midnight raffle. Okay?
Only days away from WORN’s much-anticipated Black Cat Ball to celebrate the release of our 17th issue, here is an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at our cover shoot at Toronto’s Mrs. Huizenga’s.
On Saturday, November 23, WORN Fashion Journal will get your inner kitten out of the alley and onto the dance floor with our Black Cat Ball. Bring out your best ball style in black and white and watch as fashion comes on little cat feet. Bring a date or just walk on your wild lone.
If luck is a lady (or at least not a jerk) you’ll get a shot at our raffle. We’ll be offering purrecious prizes from:
Come As You Are
Drawn & Quarterly
Leaves of Trees
Little Island Comics
Penguin Books Canada
Tip the scales with extra raffle tickets for just $1. Want to frolic with fellow felines? Our cat ear headbands will have you meowing for more.
And when you’re done with the madness, move onto the magic. We predict you’ll get your whiskers in a twist with an eclectic mix of highly danceable oldies and favourites with WORN’s own Teddy the K.
