Freestyle Magazine Launch

So, last night, next to that big red bus near the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, Freestyle Magazine had a little launch party, complete with rooftop – well van-top – DJ’s and a frisby competition / display. Said frisby comes free with the debut issue and features a design by excellent fashion duo Eley Kishimoto.

The bi-annual magazine fits perfectly inside the frisby – yes, a round magazine – and has everything from fashion editorials and pages of monkey faces to delicious cake recipes. It has a crafty, whimsical feel, a little like recently departed (in print form anyway) Amelia’s Magazine, except not as girlie.

You can grab a copy at RD Franks, Magma, Borders etc. Except not Borders on Oxford Street as that branch is shutting down. Terrible news. It’s been bought out by New Look. Even worse news...

The September Issue

This is exciting. This September we can enjoy a behind the scenes documentary of The Devil herself Anna Wintour, editing the very important ‘fall’ – as the Americans say – issue of Vogue. The September issue is traditionally the biggest and highest selling of the year.

Anna Wintour rarely does interviews, so the fact she has allowed cameras to follow her is a brilliant opportunity for us to glimpse her ruling the roost of the fashion industry. In one clip we see her telling Oscar de la Renta he should not use a look in his collection – yes, she has that much power. She does have that annoying English/American hybrid accent though, but hey, she can’t have everything.
