In our lives we are bombarded with media, and at times, finding that the content we want is lacking. I wanted to create a magazine that builds community around finding alternatives for consumerist culture, with a focus on recycling and re-use in the world of style and craft.
This month we bring you body positive articles that are inspiring, spark creativity, and help in support the development of one's own personal style. This empowering content shows that style is about confidence and expression, not a brand name and how many dollar signs are attached to a product.
My audience is predominantly womyn interested in fashion on a budget. They pursue timeless, personal, and fun fashion that exists outside of temporary trends. Interested in thriftiness as a means to make conscientious choices that are ethical, as well as environmental, they enjoy DIY for creative and economic reasons.
The Vestido Womyn
The Vestido womyn is seeking their own style, and is paving their own way in the world. They seek to empower their fellow community members, and believe in developing their own voice. Seeking creative expression in the every day activities of life, they find joy in making their space and home both beautiful and inviting.
They are innovative, frugal, and generous. As a problem solver, they aren’t afraid to stand out, especially while looking fabulous. Intergenerational, and from all walks of life; they are the young high schooler using their babysitting money to find the perfect skirt at goodwill, the grandmother finding fabrics at the local charity shop for a quilting project, the sister buying the ceramic pots to paint for a garden project.
Constantly looking for ideas and inspiration, the Vestido womyn loves the reader involvement and contributions, and feels a sense of support and acknowledgement from the articles and content.
