So I subscribe to 7 magazines as of now, 5 of which have already come in the mail(I think the other two won’t start until the May issues). I’ve decided to add a component of the blog where we’ll talk about these magazines, the drama surrounding them and of course the fashions included! Each magazine is going to have a separate post and I’ll get to those later but right now there’s some covers I want to post and a few things I want to discuss!
I love W because it is intelligent, sassy and a fantastic art and fashion magazine. But Fox is not fashionable, has a gigantic mouth that spews nothing but word vomit and is a flash in the pan. W is one of the few magazines that still puts models and authentic movie stars on the cover.
Fox is just a sad excuse for some publicity to sell magazines. Remember who your audience is: fashion and art lovers, not teenybopppers.
And to be completely honest, I agree with the entire letter, Mean Girl references and all. I subscribed to W because the magazine is high fashion and heavy on art. But March’s issue(although I never received it… yeah I still haven’t received my March issue) was a disappointment and so is April. April’s issue is the first ever Shopping Issue for W. SHOPPING ISSUE?? I thought I subscribed to W, not InStyle.
probably to just make it more of a general-interest style magazine, and less of a fashion-obsessed publication.
I’m not sure if Mr. Tonchi understands it but the W audience IS FASHION OBSESSED! It’s the reason we subscribe! We want to get artsy fashion editorials… edgy even, and be able to actually see them thanks to the oversized printing of the magazines. If I wanted an InStyle Deluxe, as The Imagist calls it, I would have subscribed to InStyle and be yelling about increasing the size of the pages.
