Our magazine is a biannual fashion, art and culture publication with a global reach. It is designed for a creative, sophisticated audience and has won numerous awards and accolades. The magazine is both a showcase of local and regional talent and a vehicle for creative self-expression by those involved in putting it together. This fall we are celebrating our 5th anniversary! 


In August of 2015, we launched a physical space called the PATTERN Workshop. The space not only serves as the HQ of our publication, but is also an event space AND a maker co-op,  hosting three small maker businesses.



PATTERN events are educational and social, connecting all creatives, and especially those in fashion and “making”. Since its inception in 2011, PATTERN has hosted over 100 events engaging more than 80,000 people through its various outlets and social relevance. We rely solely on our dedicated volunteers, who have generously spent over 15,000 hours insuring the success of our events.
