Land Acknowledgement

The land where StyleCircle operates has an important history, present and future that we need to understand and acknowledge. This land is called Turtle Island and it is originally the home of many Indigenous peoples. It is the unceded traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, the Wendat and the Mississauagas of New Credit. We acknowledge and respect these nations as the past, present and future true inhabitant people of this land. What is today known as Toronto is located in the Dish With One Spoon Treaty Territory. A treaty between the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee and the Mississauagas that bound them together to share the territory and protect the land. We want to recognize that we are sharing this land on which Toronto sits with each other.

Performance, The Seventh Anniversary Issue of The Book by StyleCircle

How do we perform in society? How do we show up? Which parts of our identities do we radically embrace and which parts of ourselves do we hide? The Book 07 aims to explore the ways in which fashion intersects with performance as a means of cultural production, self-expression, and revolutionary liberation. Through editorial and visual concepts that explore artistic performance, activism, and the performance of self, this issue aims to leave a meaningful contribution to these areas of discourse. I hope that the experience shared throughout this issue resonate with you and encourage you to lean into self-reflection, compassion, collective care, and uninhibited expression.

I would like to send my most heartfelt thank you out to the entire StyleCircle team. You are all so incredibly talented and this issue would have not been possible without you. Thank you to everyone who contributed their ideas, time, writing, artwork, skills and creativity to this edition. Thank you to the executive team for all the dedication you’ve shown this year. I am so proud of us!

Thank you for selecting The Book 07: Performance. I truly hope that you enjoy it and I’m so excited to share it with you.
