Living in Print

Behind the scenes of issue 16's prettily patterned photoshoot

When we first moved into our new office in the historic George Brown House in Toronto, we liked to pretend that we had stumbled onto the set of Downton Abbey. Almost every detail of this 1876 home was lovingly captured in our issue 16 photoshoot, ”Living in Print.”

Wornette Chayonika Chandra puts the power in power clashing as she blends into and boldly contrasts the walls (and floor) of our new home.

A Day at the Market

WORN Fashion Journal pairs up with CultMTL for a celebration of summer style

In June, WORN took a road trip to Montreal to launch Issue 16 and take part in a summery shoot for former wornette Emily Raine’s amazing CultMTL. What better way to spend the perfect summer day than with flowers, food, and fashion?

Mothership Connection

Behind the scenes of our issue 16 space-age photoshoot

With T-minus 10 minutes before we began our photoshoot “Mothership Connection,” we had to go over our checklist. Sequin dresses? Check. Gold-leaf eyelashes? Check. A year’s supply of aluminum foil? Double check. Finally, we were ready for launch.

Models Lydia Ogwang and Rina Sieh were our queens of the galaxy, regal in celestial metallics and galactic eyeshadow. Mission control was lead by photographer Allison Staton and our styling team of Casie Brown, Lydia Chan, and Kaya-Marisa Meadows.

If the papers want to know whose shirt we wear, they’ll have to pick up issue 16 to find out.

Magnetic Field

Living surrealist art in a sculpture garden

We were a little worried when the rain wouldn’t stop during our 90-minute drive to Sunderland, Ontario. We caught a break when we arrived at the home of Judith and Viktor Tinkl, who hosted us for our issue 16 photoshoot “Magnetic Field”. The rain had stopped but thank goodness the clouds didn’t part, because we got to take advantage of perfect lighting conditions for such a shoot.

Captured by photographer Chelsee Ivan and styled by Eliza-Trent-Rennick (along with Casie Brown and Zoe Vos), model Jenna Danchuk is never upstaged by the towering, spellbinding sculptures inhabiting the Tinkl property.
The rain returned as we left the location, almost like a curtain closing on a strange, beautiful fable.
