Novella is an annual-ish publication on fashion and identities. Informed by the “compact and pointed plot” structure of the traditional novella, each magazine attempts to weave a compelling narrative within the bounds of text and textiles.
In this first issue, contributors have been asked to take stock of their material world as it relates to fashion and romance.
In this issue:
- A White Dress, an essay by Lenna Petersen reflecting on the historical and personal significance of the wedding dress
- Déshabillez-Moi, an essay by Abigail Buzbee undressing fashion within popular romance fiction
- Mademoiselle Butterfly, a wardrobe interview and editorial with Seattle based artist Natasha “Lady Krishna” Shulman
- Various inserts, featuring deconstructed romance novels
