Polyester zine

For my posterzine article I will be featuring two London based female-led feminist zines one of them being Polyester.

Celebrating all things trash, kitsch and camp, Polyester explores feminism and gender identity through fashion. Polyester is a self published, intersectional feminist fashion and culture publication aiming to bridge the gap of URL cyber feminism with the IRL world.

“Polyester is about celebrating culture that isn’t considered the ‘norm’ and celebrating the people within that community. I found that especially in the fashion industry ‘trashy’ or ‘over the top’ fashion is never analyzed in a critical way in the same way minimal fashion is. Polyester is also about building a community and respecting this community as being important and valid, and not just a commodity. I wanted it to be a space where people could discuss cute clothes or films but also more serious social and political issues“- Ione Gamber, Editor-in-chief.
