Article: Inside the House of WORN

Toronto-based indie style magazine WORN Fashion Journal has always celebrated all things vintage. So it’s appropriate that its office is on the top floor of the historic George Brown House near Grange Park, where the magazine’s volunteer staff (known affectionately as “Wornettes”) congregate to plan their next issue, process orders, or watch a movie from the extensive collection of ’90s VHS tapes. It’s also where the idea was formed for The WORN Archive, a new book compiling the greatest hits from the mag’s first seven years. From the history of stewardess uniforms to the keffiyeh’s relationship to commodification, WORN casts a wide net when exploring the cultural significance of style. We asked publisher Haley Mlotek for a tour of what she dubs its “Downton Abbey–esque” digs—click here for a close-up view of the photo above.
