ORDER HERE. SHIPS NOW. A 24-page, two-color comics journalism collection of oral histories from Vienna’s faded fashion industry. VOLKSMODE is a new addition to Our Fashion Year, a comics journalism exploration of international women’s labor that ran monthly on Truthout. Unraveling the threads that weave together fast fashion and human trafficking, Our Fashion Year asks why and how the flow of capital particularly disadvantages women, throughout the world. In Austria, we were interested in asking this question of men, in a country neither currently known as a garment producer nor a fashion capital, but which is nonetheless subject to the same global forces as workers in Phnom Penh and models in New York City. From The Ladydrawers, in this case, Simon H., Delia Jean, and Anne Elizabeth Moore. Riso printing by Issue Press in Grand Rapids, MI.
