Anyonegirl - waist journal - issue 3.5
WAIST Journal published by Anyonegirl.
WAIST considers the ideas surrounding the female mid-section, both inside and out, exploring sex, movement, digestion and a woman’s GUT INSTINCT.
[Volumised as 3.5, not a definite 4, this issue is a tangential idea — a personal ode to the beauty of Accident, Improvisation and The Subconscious. 3.5 utilises dance as a tool, not for performance but for wellbeing.
Created over four separate studio workshops, 3.5 explores primal stimuli and gut intuition through a language of movement and physical responses. A set of tasks that aid in tracking down the spirit igniting the impulse were explored both personally, and also as a group, to bring a narrative that I didn’t write.
We documented the workshop through photography and 16mm film as part of our study. This was our way of communicating the spectrum of our experience in order to translate this onto paper.]

We recommend a cold wash on a gentle cycle using natural detergent and hang drying for all our products. A colder wash saves electricity, the gentle cycle wears the fabric down less, natural detergent (especially with neutral PH) can retain the color and elastane for longer and hang drying is easier on the clothing and the environment. Hand washing is always a good option too. If you are not separating delicates, use a laundry bag to protect the fabric from getting damaged. Look for a dense fabric for the laundry bag.
We recommend that all Silk garments be dry cleaned.
Naturally dyed garments are sensitive to sun exposure. To ensure colorfastness, do not dry or store in direct contact with the sun.
To reduce washes, we recommend airing or freezing your garments and spot cleaning whenever you have a stain. Airing helps in getting rid of the odor and you can do this by leaving your clothing outside overnight. Freezing gets rid of smell, mildew as well as moths and is effective when done for 6-12 hours. This helps keep clothing in better condition for longer and ensures the colors don’t fade.
Washing synthetic fibers releases microplastics into the water system, especially during the first washes, but washing the synthetic blend fabrics in a laundry bag that captures the microfibers allows you to dispose of the microfibers properly. You can also use a laundry ball or a washing machine filter.
Clothing can shrink about 5-7% in the wash.
Knits should be stored folded, as hanging knitwear can change its shape. Storing clean clothing with cedar wood or lavender in your drawers can help prevent moths.
