Are you hungry for fashion and like to stand out from the crowd?
Are you tired of magazines that are non specific and just doesn't quite cut it when it comes to fashion and beauty?
Are you ready to be inspired?
Here comes #INSPO: a free bi-monthly fashion and beauty magazine for the North West UK and beyond.
While I was working in yet another meaningless job, thinking that my degree in Publishing and passion for fashion is going to waste, I decided that life is too short and there are too many opportunities waiting for me to take them. I quit my job, gained experience in fashion, worked on my personal style blog and met amazing people that have been working in fashion & beauty industry for years. My secret dream of starting a magazine, created by people from multicultural backgrounds celebrating diversity, started coming to life.
It is not just me. I have the pleasure of working with Lucy Mckeown, Kerryn Grady, Bruce Smith, Al Milerius, Amy Faith, Kelly Ann Garrigan, Rob McGrory, Kirsty Afful, Ruta Gyvyte and other wonderful creatives!
I am hoping to raise money for printing the very first issue of #INSPO
magazine and invite you to be a part of a new generation of stylish and
creative people, brought together by a high-quality magazine.
I know there are people waiting for this magazine to be published and I just need that last financial push over the line. Please help make #INSPO a success!
Every issue of #INSPO will feature:
- Exclusive editorials showcasing the work of best photographers, makeup artists, stylists of the North West UK.
- Interviews with local designers and other industry professionals.
- Newest fashion books and "must-attend" events.
- Hottest street style looks.
- The ultimate peek into beauty trends.
- Product reviews and makeup tips from makeup professionals.
- An inside look into the best spas of the North West UK.
The amount of £5,600 is needed to pay for printing the first edition of #INSPO, to pay crowdfunding and other fees, and to the video production company for making our amazing video.
I am not asking for any more than I need. Myself and people around me believe
in #INSPO. However, if we don't reach the required amount, we will still put the money towards printing and look for every possible way to raise the rest of the money.
To thank you for your generous donations I have gathered some great perks!
- Invites to the exclusive launch party and fashion show in Liverpool
- Signed copies of the magazine
- Beauty and fashion consultations
- Photography sessions
I believe that #INSPO has the power to change how the North West region is perceived in terms of fashion and beauty and to kickstart positive change by delivering inspirational content.
Risks & ChallengesAs rewarding as creating a publication is, this endeavor comes with some challenges, the biggest ones being deadlines and costs. However, we are already sorting out the contect beyond the initial issue to avoid stressful sleepless nights in the future. We have also gotten estimates from several different printers through extensive research, picked the best one and are sticking to it for the time being.
