Typically at the beginning of an issue of Capitol Couture, you will find a lighthearted preview and a meaningful commentary from the mind that shaped the issue, molding it into the final product you see here. But there’s more than one mind at work at Capitol Couture, and in the spirit of President Snow’s “One Panem” initiative we have reached out to reinforce our connections with the foundation of this magazine: our staff.
Each member of the Capitol Couture team brings their unique experience and insight to every page we construct. Focusing on the collaborative nature of life, art, and fashion, this installment of Capitol Couture will highlight the success we can achieve through working together. This being said, the whole staff at Capitol Couture, would like to collectively welcome you to our special edition issue.
We will visit Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason, whose united skills have delivered them from yet another arena. We will introduce you to the One Panem initiative and the Capitol Ministry of Information- a fresh government branch with a highly fashionable leader, dedicated to the unification of our country and all its myriad strengths. We will spotlight the selfless, charitable members of the Capitol, donating their time and effort to give back to the people of Panem. And naturally, we will bring you the latest, hottest fashion, featuring designers creating together for the most fabulous future imaginable.
As always, dear readers, we encourage you to be relevant. Be chic. Be collaborative. Be Capitol.

"She came from a background where nothing was ever good enough. And that was something that weighed heavy on her. But in our house together, it was a sense of just trying stuff and allowing each other to fail and to be excited about things. That was liberating for her. It was exciting to see her grow and both of us grow and change together. But that’s also the hard part: growing without growing apart or changing without it scaring the other person. I still find myself having conversations with her in my mind. Rehashing old arguments and defending myself against the things she said about me." - Her (2013)
Until recently, I have had a tremendous amount of shame about the bullying I experienced as a child. Whenever something would happen and my mother would find out, she would yell at me and say, "Why didn’t you fight back?! What are you doing to make them treat you like that?" So I felt like it was my fault. (x)
There is a genuine dangers of my tears shorting out the computer and turning this entirely into a Laverne Cox fanblog.
The whole INTERNET should be a Laverne Cox fanblog.
