Empire Waste

by T/James Reagan

In this haute couture-noir novel, T/James Reagan, author of Famous For Nothing, provides his post-Empire vision of the New York fashion scene.

Reagan’s novel explores all of the taboo subjects plaguing the fashion industry- racism, underage models, eating disorders, pervy photographers, human trafficking, unfair payment practices, and predatory castings.

Empire Waste follows Andrew Lorrie, a disgraced fashion designer, who finds himself unemployable after a disastrous Spring/Summer fashion show. With no other option, Lorrie accepts a job designing a competitors ready-to-wear line. As the line progresses, Lorrie begins to notice that the models who are arriving for castings and go-sees are disappearing. No longer willing to idly stand by while the fashion industry destroys more girls, Andrew becomes devoted to saving these “replaceable” models. Lorrie confronts the industry as well as his own demons in a fast paced and introspective meditation on creation, pain, and exploitation.

Empire Waste plays out as a fashion satire, as well as an exploration of New York City and the rules of the fashion industry.

Reagan’s Empire Waste proves to be a deeply personal exploration of a man living in a post-Empire world where nearly everything is disposable.

Daily Fashion: Illustrating the Fashion of the Community through Watercolor and Stories

by Sunflowerman

There are so many women and men in the world who share their fashion through social media. They post a selfie, or what they wore that day, or what they bought at the store.

The stories of these people and their experiences get lost in the cacophony of images. There’s a photo and there’s a photo and there’s another.

People are being lost amongst the shuffle of shoes, shirts and hair products.

Who are these people? What are their struggles? What are their triumphs? Who are their influences? Where do they live? Why do they wear what they wear?

The Daily Fashion Project is about gathering these stories and sharing them in a way that steps away from the photographs. Through an illustration a person can be seen from a new perspective.

Get to know your community of fashion fanatics by reading their stories.
