"Books about looks": Toronto's Wornettes roll through Montreal!

Last week we happily hosted a few of the ladies behind Worn Journal, the bi-annual publication out of Toronto that's making waves with its refreshingly brainy take on fashion.

They were here to promote the 16th issue of the journal, which has been praised for digging up unexplored nooks of contemporary fashion coverage and transcending fast-twitch trend cycles.

"Books About Looks" was the theme of the event, with readings of passages on threads from some literary greats. Here's Haley with Eileen Myles' "Inferno."

Charlotte + Virginia Wolf's "Orlando."

Stephanie read her grade-two student's epic hair-dying twist-ending tale.

 Pamela read all about the history of the very amazing zoot suit.

 And we were even treated to some lovely Spanish poetry about shoes.

Thanks, Wornettes!
