We're familiar with almanacs when it comes to farming, astrology, economics, just about anything except fashion really. But now we have one for our own industry thanks to Laura Bradley, the Editor-in-Chief of The Fashion Almanac. The Almanac will be published twice a year, conveniently timed to coincide with Fashion Weeks in late September and late February. It will be a slight one hundred pages and sell for for £5.00 ($10) a pop. If you can't wait for February (because between this and LOVE, we can't), there's already content on-line. The magazine will stay true to its almanac label as "a reference book, composed of various lists, tables, and often brief articles relating to a particular field or many general fields." So in the case of fashion, this entails an analysis of designer bows, an 'identification guide' for various fashion items and an 'object lesson' which, in this issue, dissects a Marios Schwab dress. Each article comes with textbook-like illustrations and pictures that make us feel like we're doing something at least half-way studious when really we're just learning more about the things we already love. Now, if only we could get a PhD in magazine-reading. --HAYLEY PHELAN
