Tori chose to focus on FLARE magazine under Suzanne Boyd as EIC to analyze how national identity is represented in fashion magazines, a very timely topic as the fashion print industry and concept of fashion cities are both deeply influenced during our current hyper-globalized era.

Tori looked to journalistic articles, editorial photography as well as editors letters to understand how Canadian identity is relayed through FLARE.
