Sydney Wornette

I have lived all my life in Montreal, from nursery school to my inevitable enrollment in 2009 at McGill University. Growing up in this city, surrounded by well-dressed people, putting on clothes was always more than just something I had to do. While Montreal is a great place to shop, my family always found ourselves buying clothes when we were on vacation. It was very important for my mother, and then for me, that the clothes I wore were unique and that I would be the only person in my school with that particular top. Today when I get dressed I find it thrilling when I can put together an outfit that I think might make me stand out from the crowd in some way, whether it be a great pair of boots or a bright red wool coat with blue fur trim. When I’m not getting dressed or checking myself out in tinted windows I like to study music history, watch too much TV, go biking, and read WORN Fashion Journal.
