JANSET YASAR

FOUNDER /EDITOR-IN-CHIEF / COLUMNIST

I'm an obsessive playlist maker (more expert on the sad ones) professional at finding my way to the front line at concerts (thanks to my 1.58 height) and a compulsive crier to James Blake's music  (Assume Form, quite weirdly.) I spent my formative years on Tumblr reblogging Arctic Monkeys lyrics and Robbers stills so that should give you an idea on the level of my individuality complex. I'm always on the hunt for the perfect platform boots and awfully over-priced band merch to go with it.

ANA FELIX

My name is Ana, a 24 year-old Portugese, who found out collage, photography and design was her passion.I always loved putting pieces together and trying to come up with new concepts and ideas. Inspired by many artists, I try to find my identity with glitter, stars and an enormous amount of pink.I started here, as a collage artist with "Saturday Style Icon" collages for Instagram and now I'm a full on art contributor. I hope you enjoy my art, as it is. Here is my portfolio

She’s passionate about supporting indie artists and has a thing for the Aussie music scene (hello triple J and queen Courtney B).

She is also a slow-fashion advocate, vegan, and crybaby who loves a good craft beer and isn’t afraid to mosh.

İNCİ EMİNE SAHİN

ILLUSTRATOR

İnci is a 20-year-old architecture student at Middle East Technical University, Turkey. Learning things, expressing herself, creating art, listening to music, arguing about movies are some ways that make her soul fulfilled. For a while creating drawings, visuals were some lost causes from her childhood and lately she wants to  feel that magic again like she was 12 & drawing. She is either with friends laughing or alone in her room studying, reading.

ROB LUCCHESI

MUSIC COLUMNIST 

Nice to meet, hope y’all are enjoying the shows as much as we are! I’m a 20 year-old writer-hopeful from Charlotte, NC, now studying journalism up in New Jersey, with a minor in rock n’ roll! I grew up in between the city and all that country-bumpkinness you can expect from the South, but that’s never stopped us from picking each other up and pushing for a greener, meaner, and more accepting tomorrow. Y’know what they say, man, the revolution will be televised, but not before we bring you the soundtrack.

SASCHA GOLDSTEIN

MUSIC COLUMNIST 

I'm a writer from the Netherlands. I can get overwhelmed easily and music, reading and writing is how I cool down. I like songs that radiate the color blue and purple and I feel like an imposter in every bookstore I'm in.

FASHION COLUMNIST

I grew up in Bellingham, Washington and I am a history major and French minor at The College of Wooster where I specialize in fashion and cultural history. I enjoy writing about subcultures and personal identity as it pertains to fashion and dress. My style revolves around Ivy, grunge chic and gorpcore but I always have fun styling unique pieces. When I am not reading fashion books and writing I love to dance, make music, be creative and make funny videos with my friends.

MELIS SEZGINEL 

FASHION COLUMNIST

This is Melis, an economics and art student at Bocconi University. I am obsessed with all kinds of art and also fashion (which is also a form of art in my opinion). “We have art in order to not die from the truth” said Nietzche and these are the words I live by on a daily basis. When I’m not looking for what’s new in Milan, I try to do my best at writing, singing and creating art. If you see me, I will probably start talking about the concerts I planned on going and couldn’t (Harry Styles included) or an artist that I find very inspiring.

KENNEDY SMITH

FASHION COLUMNIST

Hi I’m Kennedy, a longtime fan of Tonitruale! As I write I’m eager to uncover how fashion subcultures are born, what staples define each decade, and how costume designers find just the right piece for the scene. When I’m not writing you can find me listening to Fiona Apple, scrolling on tumblr, or watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
