Where smart fashion lives
WearHaus Magazine presents a different frontier in fashion media – one less concerned with “who” or “what” you’re wearing, and more concerned with posing the question: why? A hybrid of theoretical exploration, investigative reporting and provocative photography, WearHaus Magazine invites our readers to think about fashion the way we think about art, literature, photography or film – a field intricately related to philosophy and sociology, shadowed by the practice of commerce and trend forecasting. We celebrate artistic collaboration across the disciplines, seeking to reaffirm a rich and wide vision for what fashion is, means, and could be. WearHaus Magazine is the destination for those who view fashion as a mode of life, an expression of identity, and an exquisite manner of storytelling.

Fair-Trade Movement Extends to Clothing
Demand for information about how and where goods are produced has spread from its origins in food to clothing, recently gaining momentum after a factory collapse in Bangladesh.
The bloodshed behind our cheap clothes
As the death toll in Bangladesh mounts, former factory child laborer Kalpona Akter says corporations must insist on safe factories and a living wage for workers.
Bill Cunningham | Dress Rehearsal - NYTimes.com
A truly shocking quote about the collapse of a Bangladesh clothing factory. Makes you think twice about fast-fashion.
“Even in a situation of grave threat, when they saw cracks in the walls, factory managers thought it was too risky not to work because of the pressure on them from U.S. and European retailers to deliver their goods on time,” said Dara O’Rourke, an expert on workplace monitoring at the University of California, Berkeley. He added that the prices Western companies pay “are so low that they are at the root of why these factories are cutting corners on fire safety and building safety.”

There's a brutish beauty in the a-linear nature of fashion's movement through (& often against) time. It doesn't progress in fits & starts so much as in ruptures & paradoxical hindsight-futurism. We shift, not according to the whims [...]

Another perspective on the beautiful endurance of nostalgia in fashion:
"Vogue’s “Nostalgia” column seems something of an anomaly, for I know of no other forum in fashion journalism in which writers abandon the present — dispensing with current styles, up-to-the-minute trends and decrees about “the new black” — in favor of a vividly remembered past."
Joan Didion, Carly Simon, Karl Lagerfeld and others share their enthusiasm for archival fashion photos in this collection of essays from Vogue.

"The latest fashion . . . is absolutely necessary for a painting. It's what matters most." —Édouard Manet
Manet's sentiments were widely held during the period from the mid-1860s to the mid-1880s, when Impressionism came of age and Paris emerged as the style capital of the world. “Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity” presents a revealing look at the role of fashion in the works of the Impressionists and their contemporaries. http://met.org/XDZ2pO

"Across the universe of style, department stores are repositioning themselves in a world of fast fashion and e-commerce. For the 21st century, as at its birth a century ago, a store needs to be an emporium of excitement and emotion — a place where the offering is unique, the service is five star and shopping is an immersive dream world."
