Posted on | November 25, 2009 | Posted by Marian Simms Comments Off on New KAREN issue out soon
At last here it is our summer issue!
Our cover is a break away from our colour and luscious skin signature. I fretted a little in the dramatic Black and White version being too much of a departure, however the response to our test audience has been overwhelming YES!
Australian David Standish based in the UK shot the cover with our UK fashion editor, New Zealander Kate Ruth, featuring Alice Fadeeva with Hair & Makeup by Jaimee Thomas. And what an arresting image it was, sitting on our computers itching to be printed in heavy high gloss, the foil masthead just warming it. The image was just so strong – worked from two images in the editorial “Enter Alexis” by the same team. I love fashion, photography and Art underlining ART in fashion photography. As one reader of the incredible blog by Patty Huntington [ FROCKWRITER ] made comment – I am so tired of blondes in sparkly dresses. -I hear you! I get to take risks. I own the magazine. The up shot of being an independent publisher is creative freedom. – And of course I also pay the bills! LOL
I encourage you to get your hands on a copy of this issue, I believe it to be one of our very best. Perhaps even a collectors edition.
looking forward to your feedback
x with love Marian
