This new annual UK magazine is the brainchild of Kira Jolliffe and Bay Garnett, who founded the hugely popular Cheap Date magazine in the 90s. For its first issue, the duo reached out to celebrities and fashion icons like photographer Nick Knight, filmmaker Louis Theroux, Singer Rita Ora, stylist Jo Mckenna and about 60 others. Each was asked to create a spread or ‘fanpage’ dedicated to their fashion obsessions.
This loose brief lent itself to fluid interpretation, with Knight, for instance, dedicating his page to rocks and designer Salonge Azagury paying homage to rainbows. The result is a delightful scrapbook, each spread an expression of individuality – which all together is a little bit haphazard, but more interesting for it.
We asked Garnett whose fandom we can hope to encounter in the next issue, but it’s all a bit hush-hush at the moment. The editors seem to be taking a more crowd-sourced approach for the next one – this issue ends with an invitation for all readers to send in their own fanpage, which might make it to the mag in 2017.
