The Anti-Aesthetics of Fashion

If you are a fan of fashion, be warned. The following contents may shock and disturb you. The fashion industry, and fashion as a whole, thrive on trends.

How to Wear It: 3 Ways to Wear a Slip Dress

You can try for yourself using a slip dress with a jacket or cardigan over it. You can wear this to school, while still feeling like you’re in pajamas. For a more sophisticated evening look, throw on a slouchy blazer. To go full ‘90s grunge, make it a plaid jacket and add some chunky boots. A choker and twin buns show true commitment.

Six Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands to Try Now

For those who place special attention on the treatment of our furry companions, buying cruelty-free products is a must.

Nothing goes as planned, things are not what you thought they would be, everything is wrong!

Portrait of a Wearist: Sayoko Yamaguchi

Considering herself a “wearist” rather than a model, Sayoko was not simply a hanger to display the clothing, but an element of the artistic process in representing the clothing.
