Reframing Working on Ourselves with Leah Faye Cooper
+ May's live event
This week, we are chatting with Vanity Fair contributing editor Leah Faye Cooper. We met Leah at South by Southwest, where she was facilitating a panel of influencers that went down the road of Botox and fillers and the external work one can do on oneself. That prompted us to ask Leah to come on Reframeables and talk about the more holistic work that we can do on ourselves and in the world, but through the eyes of a fashion writer. We talk all things fashion and culture (and what we may or may not want to do to our faces), as well as what the industry is really like — who stays, who gets out.
Leah Faye Cooper is a Vanity Fair contributing editor, covering fashion and culture. Previously editorial director at Coveteur, her work has appeared in Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, W, and The Hollywood Reporter. She is currently working on her debut book, Full-Court Dress, chronicling the rise of the NBA as a fashion powerhouse.

We are looking outward with our second live event — Reframeables is community building at 3030 (Dundas West and High Park Ave) on May 31st from 7 p.m to 9 p.m. If you live in Toronto we’d love to see you there! Our plan is for everyone to leave the evening with a few literary links for reframing life’s big and small stuff. It’s all WAY more possible to do with the help of books, novels, poems, short stories…and even the odd essay. So if you’re able to join us come ready with at least one recommendation to share. If you can’t join us we’ll be sharing our gathered list of links to all of our dear reframeables in a bonus newsletter.
