CALL FOR PITCHES — ISSUE 6:

The sixth issue of Ephemera will examine Fashion. 


The clothing we wear changes from one day to the next, and with the ubiquity of fast fashion, styles and trends change rapidly as well. This issue will look at how fashion reflects societal shifts and changes, and how one’s attitude towards fashion can be a reflection of oneself as well as the world. We are looking for work that considers the many details of the fashion macrocosm, and our relationships to them.

ADDITIONAL INFO


Ephemera is a published work exploring topics typically seen as ephemeral. “Ephemera” refers to things that are used or enjoyed for a short time, or items that are expected to have only short-term usefulness or popularity.

This project is a testament to the fact that people often find meaning in what might typically be categorized as temporary or disposable. It  is an exploration of unexpected permanence (perceived or otherwise) in a world of rapid change.
