WHO? Jane is a textile designer by trade, and a photographer, dj, and blogger by accident.
WHAT? Fashion Almanac is a record of what I see and like, be it noteworthy fashion, design, photography, music, weird animals or whatever else catches my eye. It is a collection of thoughts and open conversations, as well as a bit of a visual diary, encompassing aspects of fashion theory, the culture of fashion and a sense of humour. It is a nerdy blog written by a nerdy girl.
WHEN? Since January 2010, every few days or whenever an idea takes me. Some times a little, sometimes a lot. I have a full time job, yo.
WHERE? Here. And on TUMBLR. And TWITTER. And featured online on American Apparel’s Best of Seen & Submitted , Irish Times Fash Mob, RTE’s Two Tube, The Licentiate, as well as in print for U Magazine and Stellar Magazine.
WHY? Without thinking I’m too big for my boots, I want to add something to the fashion conversation rather than just passively viewing or pressing reblog. Because there aren’t enough blogs talking, really talking about fashion, about design standards, about ethics and sustainability, about the really hard work that goes into what we wear and the reasons we wear it in the first place. Because there needs to forums for (somewhat) intelligent thought on fashion as well as a place to take it not seriously at all. Because as much as being earnest and gushing about fashion might be genuine, if we’re honest it’s probably healthier to have a somewhat humourous take on things.
