Too often people forget that cuisine is regional! Everyone is going to add their own flair and they’re going to use the resources and ingredients that are available to them in their area. That is what makes food exciting and so complex!Read More
“A lot of Latinos growing up in the states were encouraged to “be more American” by our immigrant parents and grandparents, out of fear of being targeted. As a result, so many of us grew up only speaking English, losing our native tongue and culture over generations”
"Designing with indigenous, hand-woven textiles means that you are working with sacred materials. Before I dove into this brown-owned business, I had to check myself. I had to be sure I was doing it the right way. Ethics and social consciousness are important to always keep in mind when getting into a business venture in fashion."

Photographer: Jean Meziere

We are honored to feature this unpublished series by renowned French Photographer Jean Meziere (1946-1986)
These photographs were created in the American southwest in 1982. Using slow AFA film, mainly Kodachrome 25, Meziere was able to capture the intensity of light in a profound way. His work became characterized by strong color saturation, and a crisp level of detail due to the film's fine grain. Nearly thirty five years later, with restoration and edits from Meziere's son, Jeannot Quenson, this artist's unseen works are making their premiere appearance in Armoire Magazine. Read more from Jeannot Quenson on Meziere's life and art linked below.
