The WORN Archive: A Fashion Journal about the Art, Ideas, & History of What We Wear
“WORN is reclaiming fashion as something that may be exciting, challenging, different, quirky, interesting, not just as something you could have to consume.”―Jane Pratt, from her foreword
The WORN Archive: A Fashion Journal concerning the Arts, Ideas, and History of What We Wear is a manifesto on why fashion and clothing matter. For eight years, the Canadian magazine has investigated the intersections of fashion, pop culture, and art. With prescient, intelligent articles, WORN Fashion Journal strives to address diverse issues such as gender, identity, and culture with openness and honesty. WORN asserts that fashion is art, history, ideas, and most of all fun―that style is a personal experience that don’t need to align with the fashion industry.
The four-hundred-page book features the most efficient content from the journal’s first fourteen issues, assembled by WORN‘S founder and editor in chief, Serah-Marie McMahon. Articles penned by a host of unique contributors (academics, writers, curators, and artists) touch on topics as wide-ranging as the relationship between feminism and fashion, discourse on hijabs, learn how to tie a tie, the history of flight attendants, and textile conservation. With eclectic photo shoots featuring “real” models, striking illustrations, and whimsical layouts, each and every page is a joyful, creative approach to clothing.
The WORN Archive is the ultimate cultural style map for many who don’t wish to be told learn how to dress but are searching for a transformative understanding of why we wear what we do.
