Out of fashion

Publisher's note

What would a fashion issue look like that didn't tell you what to wear? By the time we remembered Fashion Week was happening, it was already over, and we probably wouldn't have had much to offer in the way of criticism or review.

Instead, our contributors this month make the case that what's worth wearing and living with is what's worth looking at, for whatever reason feels most right. They went to the end of the line to try to understand, mining long-lost childhood fantasies, staying out too late, and climbing through holes in fences.

For our part, we've been working on creating something worth looking at during the moments you're blissfully away from a screen of some sort: NEWEST YORK is excited to announce the publication of our first book – William Mebane's Mental Hygiene. Join us and Will at the launch party on October 12th, where we'll be selling the first copies ahead of making the book available for purchase online for $15.

The cost of publishing this monthly magazine and of producing print books of new and local work at an affordable price point is supported by Newest York Arts Press Inc., our parent 501(c)(3) arts organization. We're now able to accept tax-deductible donations, so if you like what you've read so far and want to support a publication that pays its contributors (and always has), please consider donating!

Thank you, as always, for reading.
