I am not sure I can pinpoint the exact moment I fell in love with fashion, but I know it definitely started when I was young. I remember buying my first issue of American Vogue, and then later subscribing to all sorts of style magazines such as Seventeen and Teen Vogue.
As both a pre-teen and young teenager, these magazines that are specifically geared towards a younger audience were perfect for me. I felt updated with the times, but articles were relatable and easy to understand. In terms of fashion, I would often see trends on my fellow classmates and the people around me that reflected the ones I would see in the magazines.
Although Teen Vogue was first published in 2003 in the United States, this coming May will be the debut of the new British Vogue teen magazine, Miss Vogue. This new British magazine sounds fairly similar to its American counterpart; concentrating on styles and trends that are specifically geared towards a younger audience, and spotlighting items that are more affordable and within the price range of the typical high school student.
Teens in Britain seem excited at the prospect of the new magazine, stating that there hasn’t really been any magazines like this since the discontinuation of Elle Girl. Yet the debut of this magazine makes me wonder what critics will be saying.
I believe people act and change depending on the people they surround themselves with and the atmosphere they are in. However, there has always been an ongoing argument on whether or not magazines give women an unrealistic view of beauty, causing issues such as eating disorders, superficiality, and materialism. I wonder if these views will be at all specifically targeted towards Miss Vogue?
Nonetheless, I am excited to leaf through the 124-page magazine May 6th, and am curious in seeing what the British, who have claim over some of the most fashionable, such as Twiggy, Madonna, Daniel Craig and Kate Middleton, will be wearing!
