In this photo series, Megan Magdalena Bourne brings us clowns, Jeffrey Campbell, and a ton of glam. Because fuck gender, but yay clowns!
Fashion Week can be overwhelming in its scope and exclusivity. Fortunately, you don’t need an all-access pass to take part in the fun – all you need is a camera and a stroll around New York City. Come along with us as we check out the pop-ups and street style of NYFW 2016.
Meet Penny—one of the coolest 17-year-olds on the east coast. She began her work in fashion and culture journalism editing and writing for Things Mag, a Boston-based indie mag “dedicated to giving underrepresented East Coast artists a space to thrive.” Now, she’s a junior in high school and a co editor-in-chief of her own publication, Nether Magazine, a fashion magazine run by teens, for teens that “aims to take back fashion from top-tier corporate magazines” and embodies “the rebellious spirit of those underage, underground, and underestimated.”
There’s few things as rock ‘n roll, versatile, and unabashedly customizable as a classic denim (or leather! or fur!) jacket – or, if you’re Justin Timberlake, a denim-on-denim-on-denim tuxedo. For Modern Girls, a signature jacket is more than just a statement – it’s a story. Even if our personalized jackets didn’t make the 2001 AMAs red carpet (and the scrutinizing gaze of early 2000s fashion blogs), their stories are still worth being told.
Our first featured #moderngirlcrush is Christina Cacouris, a freelance journalist based in NYC. She’s living the dream – interviewing MG faves such as Julian Casablancas, Albert Hammond Jr., and Daphne Guinness – and she’s only 21! But it doesn’t stop there – she’s also worked on a few projects with Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio. Although she is used to asking the questions, she answered ours on inspiration, her relationship with art, and more. Read on to see why we are #crushin’ on Christina!
