Worn Magazine is a bi-annual Washington DC-based publication founded in April 2010 that concerns itself with all aspects of art and fashion in the District. This new magazine is about people, ideas, institutions and organizations striving to make DC a more art- and style- conscious city. Worn Magazine believes that “creativity has the power to bring people together, showcasing commonality rather than difference”. It recognizes the importance of art and literature, music and fashion, individuality and personal style. Through various partnerships with local artists and businesses, Worn Magazine is interested in exploring bold new ways to engage, attract and inspire a range of new audiences in the District and the nation.
Worn Magazine is supported in part by a 2010 Young Artists Grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and is created by a small and dedicated group of people including Editor and Creative Director Nicole Aguirre, Head of Photography Joshua Yospyn, and Graphic Designer Alina Alvarez. The Worn Magazine team also includes a talented group of interns who help with design, marketing, and communications.
Worn Magazine’s inaugural Spring/Summer issue is visually stunning. The large format publication places an emphasis on photography and features DC- based clothing brand Durkl, local artist DECOY, model Natalie Goins, and profiles the smartly dressed gentlemen working at Restaurant Marvin located in the U Street Corridor.
I am presently working on a feature article for Worn Magazine Issue 2 which focuses on local DJ’s and DC’s dance music community. The Issue 2 launch party is October 19 at U Street Music Hall featuring 10 DJ's and 2 special guests. Follow the Worn Magazine blog for ticket information and a behind the scenes look at this exciting new issue.
