The WORN Archive and the End of WORN Journal: The Art, Ideas, and History of What We Wear (Review) [Includes Video]

WORN cover300The WORN Archive: Fashion Journal about the Art, Ideas, & History of What We Wear is a cover-to-cover treat-filled delight for anyone who likes fashion, art, creativity, and above all style.

Each page is filled with style-related expertise, experiences, opinions, and anecdotes from WORN writers affectionately known as Wornettes.

…with each chapter focusing celebrating a different part of fashion – that fashion can be fun, fashion can be art, identity, politics, and most of all, that fashion is a personal medium for self-expression…[its] a 400+ page manifesto, a resource of incredible information, and a beautiful book for Wornettes all over the world.

Along with collecting material from the first fourteen issues of WORN, the book also includes new artwork. In fact, nearly 50% of the book’s content are photos, images, and illustrations making it not only an awesome read but also a stylistic treat for the eyes.

“It’s just as much of an art book as something you want to read.” 
– Alexandra Niit, Art Director

So be sure to pick up their final issue along with The WORN Archive to get all of the fantastic fashion features and style-filled art.
