What's In A Magazine? Posted on 29 Jan 00:40 , 0 comments
I have been a magazine reader since I was a teenager. As I developed my own sense of style as a teenager, I read Seventeen and Glamour to get ideas and to see glamorous reflections of myself. To this day I still check in with a few - InStyle, Vogue, Net-A-Porter - the difference is that I no longer purchase subscriptions. Two reasons come to mind for this 1. As much as I love the aforementioned magazines, they're stuffed to the gills with ads. 2. Pinterest is just as effective, if not more so for identifying trends and is even better at facilitating purchases than magazines, as they are updated by the minute vs. once a month.
Love it or hate it, the internet has forever changed fashion. Print magazines and fashion houses have been feeling the pain for some time now, but as they say, everything must change.
