I have clippings going back to the 1980s. Images that beg for scissors include
- fashion that I or a friend might like to wear
- fashion that I would not be caught dead wearing but which . . .
- has some interesting embellishment
- or draping
- or twist
- or color
- or editorial storyboard
Interesting articles get saved as well.
These days, with Pinterest and various mobile apps, fewer actual physical images get clipped to be stored in chronological binders that gather dust on the studio shelves. No longer is it a monthly ritual, but on a semi-annual basis I love to get a cup of tea and sit down to connect with hard-copy.
Are there magazines you prefer to handle rather than view online? Which ones call to you?
