"Preen is a fashion arts, lifestyle quarterly magazine for the young independent woman that has a curatorial eye for the world around her" says the Preen web page.

The premiere issue which says it is bimonthly was sold in US, UK and Canada and featured writers Terry Richardson, Zee Cassavetes, Cass Bird, KT Auleta, and Amanda de Caderaet. But all was lost on me. The only article I even paused at was the one on cakes at the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo. However, I checked the web, and 1.5 years after appearing, it is now in issue 7, which is not a bad track record, given the small number of women who would want to dress out of their grandfather's closet and Frederick's catalog.

Welcome to Preen: "The past must be invented, the future must be revised. Doing both makes what the present is." John Cage, composer
