TWENTY6 Magazine - H is for...

With each issue paying homage to a letter of the alphabet, TWENTY6 Magazine is a fashion and art magazine that I have had the pleasure of working at since the beginning of this year. Under the leadership of Tilly Hardy (Fashion Director) the online magazine produces quarterly issues featuring fashion and beauty spreads as well as art and lifestyle features with accompanying moving image pieces by way of a unique selling point.

Unless you happen to stumble upon the magic money tree or secure considerable financial backing, launching any form of print media is becoming increasingly difficult. Following the same path as hand writing, CD's and the ability to communicate, magazines are swiftly moving online. Media giants like Condé Nast and Hearst Magazines survive having been established in a time when they did not have giants to compete with and have the financial stores to maintain themselves. With the oligopoly-styled construction of the fashion media industry the internet provides a solution for new talent looking for a platform of promotion and expression. 

TWENTY6 last week published the H Issue. The eighth instalment of the magazine brings an eclectic selection of fashion and beauty stories that exhibit high-end creativity and impact with their raw and beautiful content. Contrasting wonderfully to more commercial titles such as Vogue and Elle. TWENTY6 displays stories with titles that include: Hot Hot Heat, Hi-Ya Huh Ha, Hellraiser and House of Dolls. There are video interviews with designers who have an initial "H" giving insight into the likes of Fashion Fringe winner Haizhen Wang and stalwart shoe designer Terry De Havilland. The magazine is cleanly constructed and wonderfully creative without being pretentious. Just what you want from a modern fashion magazine quite frankly: accessibility and shit-hot content!
