Wilder Southwest is an online home for all those who love the Great American Southwest and its wild, rugged, sparse beauty.

Sandra, the founder of WSW, is an academic fashion and visual arts librarian who has published articles on fashion history in the Berg Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion, and Bloomsbury’s Fashion Photography Archive.

Wilder Southwest shares the very best of Southwest travel, cuisine, shopping, fashion, jewelry, interior design, architecture, film, music, literature, and more.
