All Photographs by Max Cook for We Love DC.
People say that bigger does not always mean better. However, in the case of Worn Magazine’s second issue – this statement could not be any less true. With 52 pages of glossy, DC-centric fashion, 60-plus original photographs, and the introduction of contributing writers, Worn magazine is bigger, better, and, most definitely, brighter than ever.
With the success of the inaugural issue, Worn Magazine has continued to deliver on their promise – “to bring greater awareness of local fashion and art to the District and to the nation” – by making the focus of their fall/winter 2010/2011 issue to be on the artists who are trying to make it in DC. Nicole Aguirre, Worn’s Editor-in-Chief explains it best in her editor’s letter.
“DC is no longer just a place to come to work, the artists on our pages are putting the real DC on the map. They are pushing boundaries, reinventing old concepts, and making sacrifices every day for what they love. They believe in themselves and in their work more than ever. And we believe in them.”
By the look of the new issue and the crowd that attended the magazine’s Preview Party Saturday night at Alchimie Forever in Georgetown, it seems as though everyone believes in Worn too.
In honor of their second issue, Worn Magazine is giving away two tickets to their Issue 2 Launch Party to one lucky We Love DC reader. To enter, just leave a comment on this post by noon tomorrow.
The Issue 2 Launch Party will be at U Street Music Hall this Tuesday from 8pm-1am, and with over 10 DJs and the promise of special guests, this is a party you wont want to miss.
You can purchase tickets and go behind the scenes of Issue 2 at wornmagazine.com.
Ooh, I want to party with hip and cool people. You didn’t send me to Brooklyn — you could at least send me a few block north. Thanks!
Whew last minute giveaway! I probably need to just grab my ticket … any sold at the door?
Does this mean that the hipster trend is officially mainstream now, and therefore we can expect its much-anticipated demise soon?
Tickets will be sold at the door, and you can also pick them up at the Worn Magazine site: http://www.wornmagazine.com/.
Looking forward to seeing the new issue. Josh’s photography really makes DC artists shine.
Clearly, a picture is needed of Josh holding his business card in his mouth.
Great shots Max, plus Yospyn looks like a total doofus in that 3rd photo.
Please, oh please, oh please pick me. I’ll wear my Sunday best.
