Call for Submissions: The Blind Hem

Post date: 29 July 2011
Deadline: 1 November 2011

Introducing The Blind Hem, an online compilation of intelligent fashion writing. The Blind Hem will be an online magazine in blog form, pulling together some of the best available writing on fashion.

Contribute fiction, non-fiction, poetry, interviews, articles, or personal essays!

We welcome submissions from writers of all professional levels, regardless of publishing history. Send submissions to: contribute@theblindhem.com. Please write submission in the body of email or attach in .doc or .rtf form. Fiction and poetry should have some connection to fashion - a theme, a metaphor, etc. Please include a short, third-person biography and links to your blog, portfolio or personal website with each submission.

We are looking for work on how the art of dressing has enhanced life. How the perfect stitching in the seam of a vintage dress are connected to clothing. Fashion as a weapon or as a support system. How does art and culture influence fashion? The history of a certain item. Regional trends that tell a story. The social and cultural constructs surrounding fashion blogging. Reviews of collections seen through a lens (historical, social, cultural, feminist, etc.). Pieces that are heartfelt, honest and intelligent.

Launch schedule: Winter 2011

Please have submissions in before November 1.
