Who: Worn Fashion Journal
What: an indie magazine that covers a little bit of fashion, a lot about life, pieces of entertainment, and everything else a Wornette could possibly want.
Worn Magazine: With just a couple of short months left until Worn is done for good, I'm here to share a little about a magazine that never wanted to be defined by advertisers and always wanted to support and represent its readers. Knowing that no matter what we do as customers and loyal fans, every independent brand we love will be in a constant battle with "The Big Dogs" is a difficult concept to accept. So many cute, little boutique and quirky, unique shop owners are being forced to forfeit their dreams because the major names in the retail (yes, I'm talking to you Nordstrom, and you H&M, and you Target, and most definitely you, Forever 21) and magazine industry are pushing them out. Worn Magazine announced that it had released its last issue in December and all back issues still in stock would be available on their website and Etsy shop. I haven't had the opportunity quite yet to purchase any full issues of Worn (unfortunately their international shipping is through the roof!), but I have my hopes on getting about a half dozen copies before Worn's very last days. Previews and snippets from most issues of Worn can be found on their website so if you've never bought an indie magazine or want to check out exactly what's in Worn before you buy an issue or two (or three... or four...) you can take a peak here. Support a cause worth being a part of and shop independent, local, and/or ethically sourced brands; whichever suits your fancy.
