Almanac of the Fashion Department of the University of Applied Arts Vienna

Edited by: Monica Titton

ARACHNE is an almanac of clothing, fashion, lifestyle, popular culture, music and art in Vienna. It explores happenings in the city – including the work of the fashion design class at the University of Applied Arts – and beyond, offering a unique mix of fashion editorials, illustrations, essays, art, short stories, reviews and interviews.

The publication owes its name to the ancient Greek myth of Arachne, a weaver so talented that she challenged Athena, the goddess of wisdom and crafts, to a weaving contest. Athena punished Arachne for her hubris by turning her into a spider.

• Young, unconventional viewpoints from Vienna

• Brings together fashion journalism, intellectual sensitivity and strikingly visual language

• Showcases the work of the fashion design class at the University of Applied Arts Vienna
