DEAR READERS

A NOTE FROM MEGAN BREUKELMAN The pursuit of passion is an idea I’ve seen thrown around a lot lately. There are endless motivational quotes about following your dreams and finding your passions. As someone who has lived deeply entangled in this pursuit, let me start off by saying: pursuing a passion is not always realistic, and success is a relative concept. If you are fortunate enough to have turned your passion into a career, regardless of how traditionally "successful" you may be, it's important to keep in mind that success is entirely relative. Ask ten people what success means to them and they’ll all give you a different answer. The path to success looks different on everybody’s map, and it's important to let go of the comparison trap that is becoming easier and easier to fall into these days. That is not to say that if you are not in a position to fully pursue your passion, one must live without it –– but rather, it’s important to take the time to find passion in small things. Though I have always pursued a creative career and followed that path, it has not kept me constantly inspired every day. Finding passion in small things can be so fulfilling. No matter your goals, taking time to pursue other avenues as hobbies and side projects can open doors to passions you didn't know you could pursue. I started baking when I was feeling uninspired by the passions that I had worked so hard to chase, and found a new joy and fulfillment within. Passion is about finding what you love –– in work, in relationships, in life. If you are not at a point where you even understand where your passions lie, you are human, you are normal. It takes years for many people to find things in life that truly speak to them. Find your love, not your like. Wander, don't run; your passions will come to you so long as you keep on moving.

With love, Megan

BABES AND FELINES

A CONVERSATION WITH FOUNDER CIERA ROGERS

Babes and Felines is was founded in Los Angeles by trailblazing fashion designer Ciera Rogers. Worn by the likes of Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Babes and Felines embraces women's figures no matter the shapes and sizes. Ciera chats with Atlas Magazine on clothes, curves and Kardashians. Hailing from Houston, Texas, Babes and Felines founder Ciera Rogers is living and thriving in Los Angeles. “I’m a southerner at heart,” says Ciera, who was raised by a jazz singer with a flair for style and fashion design. When Ciera personally dove into the world of fashion, her career began as a fashion stylist. Six years ago, that passion for fashion evolved into Babes And Felines. “Babes and Felines really started out of frustration of being able to find clothes for myself,” Ciera explains. “I couldn’t afford pieces that were tailored for my body, so I decided to create something that filled this void.” Thus, the brand was born and has quickly become recognized for its versatility and affordability. “We are a brand that caters to all women of different sizes.” WHAT INSPIRES YOU AS A DESIGNER? Women! I literally stalk every beautiful girl I see on social media. I like to see how clothes fit different shapes and how I can cater to that. I get ideas all of the time from their beauty. Babes and Felines is all about embracing curves, which has become more and more prevalent in the fashion industry. When it comes to the overall progress of accepting curvier figures in fashion, Ciera says that “there are so many more options now. Women are feeling so much more comfortable with their bodies.” Babes and Felines is a trailblazing brand that has certainly helped to carve out a more diverse path in fashion. You may have seen some of Ciera’s designs being sported by the likes of Kim and Khloe Kardashian, and we asked Ciera how she feels to see her designs on these superstars. “It feels surreal. I get nervous sometimes because I know they’re used to high fashion clothing lines (haute couture) but overall I’m excited when they choose my brand.” Embracing curves isn’t the only amazing part of what Babes and Felines stands for.

AS A WOMAN OF COLOR RUNNING AN EXPLOSIVE FASHION LINE, CAN YOU SPEAK TO THE IMPORTANCE OF REPRESENTATION AND DIVERSITY IN YOUR BUSINESS? I think its important for people to know your story and your background. It can be inspiring to see someone grow from where they came from. As a black woman, I think its important to show black women that they can have their own businesses. For Babes, we have sold empowerment fists on our bodysuits and hats to showcase that we are proud to be black owned. And surprisingly these items have been purchased by ALL races. Its a great thing to see. With the launch of the Babes Summer 2018 collection, Ciera says there’s more where that came from. “I am revamping the dress that Kim Kardashian wore during her pregnancy and I am super excited about it.” As well, they’ll be sticking to the basics but the colors and fits of the new pieces are really exciting. So what’s next for Ciera and Babes and Felines? “I would really love to dive deep into menswear. Babes also has a male following so we would love to offer pieces to them.” Thank you, Ciera, for chatting with us! You can follow Ciera @cierarogers and Babes and Felines @babesandfelines

SUSTAINABLE FASHION

CALLING OUT THE TRUE VICTIMS OF FASHION: HOW TO SHOP SUSTAINABLE (WITHOUT PAYING FOR VETEMENTS)

Sustainable is a word on everyone’s lips. Sustainable living, as well as shopping, is fashionable not only in our wardrobes but in the political climate and our lifestyle choices. And quite rightly too, reportedly the retail industry is the world’s second most polluting industry topped only by oil. Fast-fashion is having a terrible impact on the world, consumer culture and quick turnaround trends insist we purchase more than we need at low cost, driving down quality. Across the globe people from developing countries are being paid next to nothing to work in unsafe working conditions, all in the name of fashion. Nobody should die for fashion; nobody should be a slave to fashion either. Yet, somehow, we let it happen. The collapsing of garment factories in Rana Plaza in Bangladesh in 2013 was the worst industrial accident in recorded history – it took over 1,000 lives, injured a further 2,500 and the conditions of the building are typical to many operating factories today. But it’s not just an effect on our people, it’s the planet too. Overproduction is creating mass waste, according to Vetements founder Demna Gvasalia ‘30% of what brands produce ends up in landfills.’ The brand has sparked contentious conversation by calling out brands for overproducing unsustainable garments, yet charges up to £800 for a hoodie. Although the sibling duo present some seemingly unachievable prices, they do make an excellent point – if we concentrate on the basic rules of economics, which states that value is justified in supply and demand, ‘then anything on sale is overproduced.’

In the end we have a responsibility to be more conscious of what we’re wearing

Of course not everyone can afford Vetements, but there are ways in which we can shop consciously, without paying premium. First thing is to change your outlook and alter your lifestyle slightly. There are questions we have a responsibility to ask ourselves; ‘do I need this?’, ‘does it fit me properly?’, ‘am I comfortable?’ – clothing should feel great physically on your skin as well as making you feel good psychologically too. It seems obvious but only buy what actually fits your shape, or buy slightly larger and befriend a tailor and form a relationship – your clothing will feel better and you’ll feel good about helping a local business. As tempting as it may be, don’t throw out a favourite piece because of a little tear or damage, consult a professional first and see if it’s fixable. Quite often it will be and it’ll cost you a fraction of what a replacement would. On the topic of durability and longevity, learning how to wash your clothes properly can make the world of difference to a garment’s lifespan, too. By this, I don’t mean separating colours from whites. Congratulations if you’ve mastered this – it’s commendable to many standards, but simply washing on a cooler setting inside out helps maintain fibres. Similarly, drying on a rack instead of a dryer helps to prevent damage from spin cycles, overheating and shrinking. You should also always be suspicious of labels too, read beyond the ‘Made in…’ logo, and look at the fabric. Try to avoid synthetics such as nylon and polyester, and be aware that just because something is 100% cotton, it doesn’t mean it’s been naturally produced. Usually cotton is grown with pesticides, and bamboo (often said to be the newer more ethical cotton) can require toxic chemicals in order to turn into fabric. If this sounds all a little too technical, just look out for organic cotton, linen, silk, wool and hemp. Even many high street brands such as H&M have organic cotton ranges. You’d also be surprised how many brands make clothing from plastic waste found in the oceans, or manage to produce extremely convincing vegan leather. So buttery, you’d never know it wasn’t real.

Second-hand and vintage is another great option. Ever hear the saying ‘they just don’t make ‘em like they used to’? Certainly true of clothing. You can buy a 30-year old Hard Rock Café tee for $2 from Goodwill and I can guarantee it’ll last longer than a similar style from Forever 21 that retailed at 10 times the cost. Okay, so maybe we don’t all want to sleep in Hard Rock memorabilia like I do, but staples such as wool camel coats, waterproofs, 90’s sportswear are almost always available from thrift stores, as is denim and leather accessories. Whenever I do a

clear out, I tend to think back to the last time I wore it, if it’s longer than a year it goes straight on Ebay. Which by the way, can give you lovely surprise when your Paypal account racks up a few hundred without you doing much. As a general rule of thumb, paying more does usually get you more, but be wary of trends and their offspring. With mediums such as Instagram, Polyvore and Pinterest, trend pieces that are big hit from the catwalk can appear in high street stores in a matter of weeks and we feel a desire to purchase without considering whether we’ll still like it in a month or two, or if it even looks that great on us. In the end we have a responsibility to be more conscious of what we’re wearing. We’re in an era where the options for sustainable fashion extend further than questionable hippie cheesecloth garments that were picked up at Burning Man and Glastonbury, so seriously – let’s stop just feeling good about separating our glass and plastic recycled garbage and start giving a voice to the real victims of fashion.

MAGAZINE SUBMISSIONS

THE DO'S AND DON'TS WRITTEN BY MEGAN BREUKELMAN FOR TASTE & TASTE

When submitting to magazines, it's important to remember that every magazine is different and require different things. Some take submissions via Instagram, some require very specific directions. In any case, there are some hard and fast rules to remember as a creative trying to get your work published. DO: REVIEW THE SUBMISSION GUIDELINES Every submissions-based magazine has a set of guidelines, typically found on their website. It is respectful to follow the submission guidelines and makes life a little easier on the editors going through the submissions. DON'T: DM THE MAGAZINE'S INSTAGRAM TRYING TO SUBMIT Few magazines accept DM submissions, so if you're planning to slide into the DMs, make sure the magazine is one of them. Often times these DMs get lost in the "other" inbox, or are handled by a social media coordinator rather than the editors you want to get the submission in front of. DO: CHECK THAT THERE'S A THEME If the magazine you're emailing is running on the theme of 'Adrenaline', you're not going to want to send them sleepy pictures in a dusty apartment. Work with the theme of the upcoming issue and tailor your editorials to fit. DON'T: SEND A BLANK EMAIL Don't just send a blank email with images attached –– this feels impersonal and like you're sending the same editorial to every other magazine out there. Take the time to write a concise message in accompaniment of your submission. DO: BE KIND TO THE EDITORS! Behind those email addresses are human beings. Always be kind and try to make a little connection –– you never know where it will lead. DON'T: EMAIL GIANT FILES, BLANK WETRANSFERS, BLANK DROPBOXES If an editor has to take a ton of time to figure out how to even see the images, it's likely they won't take the time to go through them. Many submissions requirements specify what size or format they'd like your images to be in, so follow the guidelines for a better chance. DO: PERSONALIZE YOUR EMAIL TO THE MAGAZINE If you plan to send the same editorial to multiple magazines, make sure you're getting the magazine's name correct in your email. Also ensure not to CC many magazines at the same time with the same editorial –– these kinds of emails get deleted pretty quickly. DON'T: SEND MULTIPLE EMAILS CHECKING IN Some magazines reply to all submissions and some don't. Check to see if the magazine states anywhere whether they do or don't reply, and be patient if they do. Submissions-based publications often have very crowded inboxes. Now that you've gone over the do's and don'ts, head over to Atlas Magazine's submission guidelines page to review before you submit to the Fall 2018 issue –– the Brazen Issue. Remember that one unsuccessful submission does not mean that every submission to that magazine will be rejected. Use the opportunity to grow and try again. Good luck, and happy submitting!

WHAT'S WRONG WITH MY VAGINA? A Q&A WITH MOLLY MARGARET @WHATSWRONGWITHMYVAGINA

One day, during a casual Instagramming session, I stumbled across What's Wrong with My Vagina. It was an account with a small following at the time, posting about vaginal health issues I'd never seen people talk about on Instagram before. I was especially surprised because Instagram doesn't have the most loving relationship with natural aspects of womens bodies–– and I had to follow. After sliding into the DMs, I had to share Molly Margaret Johnson's story. WHAT IS @WHATSWRONGWITHMYVAGINA ALL ABOUT? WWWMV is a platform for people with vaginas to reference when they have no where else to turn. We can all only WebMD for so long. It’s meant to be a space for all ages and gender, informing them about different vaginal infections and complications and how to solve them. HOW DID YOU GET THE IDEA FOR THIS INSTAGRAM? It’s no surprise that I have a myriad of vaginal complications myself. When diving into the internet looking for others who felt the same way, I was often left empty handed and felt super isolated. Of course, when you need something and it’s not actualized, do it yourself! So I did. WHO IS MOLLY MARGARET? WHAT'S YOUR BACKGROUND? I’m from the twin cities in minnesota. I’m in love with dance, tattoos, true crime, beer and ice cream. I went to private catholic school until i was 16 and never had a lick of sex ed. I’ve always been passionate and candid about sexuality and wellness but never really pursued it. I studied to be a director and worked as a film and theater director for a few years. I found it challenging as I didn’t feel like it was personally and urgently helping others and those around me. DO YOU DO ANY SORT OF PROMOTIONS? Yes! WWWMV is currently out of pocket but I still like to show the love. My most recent giveaways were things like menstrual cups and shirts that say designer pussy (@genevadiva). WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO TALK ABOUT WOMEN'S HEALTH ISSUES PUBLICLY LIKE THIS? First and foremost, WWWMV is an inclusive account. It celebrates all bodies that have vaginas. Many of my followers aren’t women, but trans and nonbinary persons. So WWWMV isn’t an account for women’s health, it’s for vaginal health. When it comes to sexual health it’s easy to panic. It’s easy to assume the worst and to let things (literally) fester. Because it’s seen as “taboo”, it’s hard for people to have candid conversations and seek the help the need. I’m working on making vaginal wellness mundane so we can all just move on with our lives. DO YOU GET A LOT OF "AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION"? WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT RUNNING THIS INSTAGRAM? So corny, but helping others. I get DMs every day from people of all ages with nowhere else to turn. I love being the Nancy Drew of their vaginal problems and helping them help themselves. YOUR FOLLOWING IS GROWING QUICKLY AND ORGANICALLY, ANY ADVICE FOR FELLOW 'GRAMMERS? I follow and interact accounts that inspire me. I reach out to my role models. Have as many conversations as you can. I’m always in my inbox reaching out to people to learn more about health and sexuality. Also be everyone’s number one fan–– show big love to accounts and people that you believe in. WHAT'S NEXT FOR @WHATSWRONGWITHMYVAGINA? I’m thinking about another platform. I love instagram so much but want to challenge myself to reach more people. A podcast? A YouTube channel? WWWMV is gonna take over the world. Follow along with Molly Margaret at What's Wrong with My Vagina @whatswrongwithmyvagina.
