World 28, Exploration A

Cover of Amity Fair fashion magazine.

Here we showcase fashion and lifestyle magazine Amity Fair. Amity Fair seeks to bring us up to date with the latest in gardening advice as well as bringing us technological advances in fabric development. In World 28, we are very committed to community involvement and the sharing of knowledge in shared spaces.

Community dye hubs play a big role in everyday life, so a refurbishment is front page news. Clothing brands are focused on selling well made, sustainable, products that are made to last and are easily repairable – The Blank Canvas are one of many retailers that sell ready to dye white clothing that is customisable at home using vegetable dyes. We celebrate the natural world through the seasons, in how it can brighten our homes, change our clothes or feed us!

Does this World remind you of something?

I am keen to hear about any historical or contemporary real-world examples – whether individual practices, subcultures or mainstream activities – that this fiction brings to mind.
