Worn Debuts

Check out Worn Magazine, the District's newly-launched fashion-centric and creative magazine.  From the Worn website:
Worn Magazine is supported in part by a 2010 Young Artist Grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. It's our mission to advocate the importance of style and art in the community by producing a hardcopy magazine that encourages readers to use both as a means of creativity and self-expression.
The second issue is out today, and you can buy tickets for the launch party held this evening at the U Street Music Hall.  Judging from the first issue, and the pictures on the blog, it looks as if the magazine is showcasing a particular aesthetic, catering to the hipster crowd (disclaimer: I hate one-note descriptors, like the word "hipster", but it successfully conveys what I'm thinking in my head, so deal with it).  While I'm excited for the launch of this project, I'm hoping in future issues there is an effort to document a broader variety of fashion and self-expression in the District.
