Thanks to Jonathan and Kenn at Kickshaw Productions, I am now aware of a Canadian vintage fashion zine called WORN fashion journal. This offers me a sense of promise. Maybe there IS a vibrant vintage community up here in maple land ;). For $20 US, you can get a two year subscription. Otherwise, each issue is $6.00 (see their Etsy shop). I'm super excited to receive Issue 9 so I can check out the article on wartime beauty in "Beauty as Duty: Re-thinking the Value of Aesthetics During Wartime" as well as a Nancy Drew-themed fashion editorial. I also believe there is a feature article on the Fashion History Museum I visited on the weekend. Maybe I'll give a little review of the zine once my subscription gets going. Maybe I'll even write FOR the zine....we'll see. In the mean-time, there are dresses to be soaked and mended and photographed and shipped. Wheeeee...
