Carl Wornette

Our newest styling intern is inspired by striking visuals and minerals and almost became a chemist

Since boyhood, fashion has been my one true love. I grew up under the roof of a fashion house. My designer father and boutique-owner mother instilled in me the absolute conviction that I, too, would claim a place in their world. Though my passion for style has never truly wavered, I took tentative steps in other directions. Namely, I studied chemistry at Dalhousie, which I now look back on as such a departure. Thankfully, the decision to move to Toronto this September coincided with rediscovering my love of fashion and styling. And so, here I am: a Wornette.

Current Inspirations

Disturber Magazine

Predictably, my most powerful sources of inspiration are visual. This magazine, which showcases new work from emerging photographers, consistently provides me with these sources. Between the mind-blowing colours, patterns, and textures, Disturber Magazine is something I return to time and time again.

The Mineralogist

My roommate Kelsey is a goldsmith. When she showed me her collection of gemstones and jewels, it was instant love. I wanted more, more, MORE. The Mineralogist is a blog where I spend hours exploring my new-found passion for all that is shiny and sparkly.

A Pair & A Spare

This is a blog that shares lots of DIY fashion and home projects. It is actually very amazing and practical to see how your own hands can make things and how you too can become a “DIY fashionista.” For an aspiring fashion designer/stylist, this blog offers many learning opportunities!

Humans of New York

They say New York is the centre of the world. It’s true. The city is packed full of different people, cultures, and stories. This blog is not about fashionable, trendy people who are simply following the pack; it is about regular people living their daily lives. To me, this is just so much more interesting than the mediocrity of following.

Band of The Day App

This is a cool music app for smartphones. Every day, the app introduces one different band from all around the world. It is always refreshing and nice to hear some unusual and new music styles by different artists around the globe!
