It’s up for sale on our site, in our etsy store, and in stores in Toronto including 6 new locations about town. Montreal, Ottawa and the rest of the world will be getting their little bundles of joy soon. I think it may be my favorite cover so far. You?
It hardly seemed possible, but last night, after months of planning, stress, and shameless self-promotion, the SOL[e]D! party happened. Now, it’s no secret that WORN readers are a stylish bunch, but the steady stream of fabulous that came through the doors at the Bata Shoe Museum to celebrate and support the launch of Issue No. 8. was the stuff of legend. In keeping with the evening’s theme, the collection of footwear was divine, from thigh-high lace-up boots (you know who you are!) to sky-high stilettos and everything in between. Dresses were saucy and hats were haute. The men gave Jon Hamm a run for his money. To every person who attended, thank you for your support, without which this publication would not exist.
When time came for the live auction, the crowd rose to the challenge and intrepid auctioneer Amanda MacDonald handled the room like a pro. Thanks to all of you who bid for helping make our fundraiser a success, and congratulations to all of you who won your bids – you walked away with some really beautiful, one-of-a-kind work. The Shake a Tail DJs capped the night with excellent music and it was great to see all our staff together (especially our senior editors who came from Montreal and New York), celebrating an evening they worked so hard to bring together.
So we are all busy bees here at the Worn Journal office. We’re getting ready for issue 8: the Shoe Issue and overdosing on platforms, pumps, and plimsolls. Marty and Lara, two of our favourite creatives from Montreal, spent last weekend shooting ladies’ legs and vegan shoes from Duckie. They sent me a little movie they made setting it up. Yay!
