My Fashion Magazine

So I took a module called ‘Publishing’ at Uni and the main assignment was to create a magazine or short book of no more than 20 pages ready for publication. The copy had to be your own work but you could use images from the Internet as long as they were correctly referenced in the essay. However, I did choose to edit most of my photographs. I had to come up with a layout and design the whole thing on Adobe InDesign.

The magazine I decided to create is a fashion magazine entitled Dernier Cri, which is French for ‘the very latest fashion’. I wanted my fashion magazine to have proper content and meaningful stories in them, unlike Vogue, Marie Claire and other popular fashion mags that are simply full of advertisements. My two main articles are on Alexander McQueen’s journey through fashion and the supersize vs super-skinny debate.

So here’s my magazine page by page:

I like negative space and so decided to incorporate an element of this into nearly every page. I like things to be neat and squared off. Overall I’m happy with my design, I only wish I’d had time to make it full length.
