  • The Bluestocking Journal
    The Bluestocking JournalFor my MA final project, I created a journal for smart women called The Bluestocking.

The Bluestocking as a brand understands the nuance of young women, that being interested in items of High Culture and Low Culture are not mutually exclusive.

  • Fashion's Fake Feminism
    Fashion's Fake FeminismProclamations of female solidarity can be found on every corner of the high street and even some high fashion shows (ahem, Dior), but are these items of clothes created with a deep consideration for the position of women within society, or simply to increase sales to an ever-growing ‘woke’ generation? For her SS17 collection for Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri printed We Should All Be Feminists (the title of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s collection of essays) across the chests of white t-shirts. These t-

    I gained a distinction in my MA fashion journalism project. The feedback read: Part of the brilliance of this project is the talented line-up of contributors which is a tribute to your ability as an editor to get people to believe in your journal, as well as finding the perfect features for them to contribute. You have certainly achieved the mix of high and low culture, “interesting and educative pieces” while balancing a playfulness in tone, as stated in the evaluative statement. What makes this magazine fascinating is the zeroing-in on niche subjects by expert (or obsessed) voices; such as Baker-Miller pink. The opening poem sets the tone for the magazine in its playfulness, originality and relatability. It feels both old-fashioned and very now.
