Flip through a typical fashion magazine today, and you’ll find headlines like “Why I’m Cheating on My Husband” or “I Planned an Orgy with My Best Friend. It was the Most Liberating Experience of My Life” and even “Is Having a Baby in 2021 Pure Environmental Vandalism?” But a huge swathe of young women in this country, many of whom consider themselves conservative, find this woke, hyper-sexualized approach to the world a big turn off.
Isabelle Redfield, 23, and Jayme Franklin, 24, decided to do something about it.
Two years ago, the fashionable San Francisco natives launched The Conservateur, an alternative platform for women who feel left out by mainstream glossy style bibles. Their site, which offers stories under verticals like “Style,” “Beauty,” “Politics” and “Faith,” has so far amassed more than 30,000 followers on Instagram. With its glamorous photos and sleek design, The Conservateur is a stark contrast to most conservative websites, which are usually tricked out in camouflage and aimed at men.
