A Magazine Curated By...

A couple of weeks ago I attended an exhibition and cocktail party at ASSIN in Paddington, Sydney in honour of a magazine I had not previously heard of titled, “A Magazine Curated By”.

"A Magazine Curated By" is unlike any other in that each issue is presented from the perspective of a renowned fashion designer.  The designer is responsible for selecting a particular theme reflecting their ethos and then filling the magazine with both written and visual pieces they find interesting and inspirational.

Well-written and beautifully presented, only 12 issues of the Belgian publication have been released since its inception - the first curated by fashion designer Maison Martin Margiela.

The current issue released last month is curated by milliner Stephen Jones.  Dedicating his edition to the creator of Vanity magazine, Anna Piaggi, Jones chose to explore the subject of illustration, showcasing the “astonishing creativity and sensitivity” of his “illustrator friends”.  The current edition features a piece on burlesque artist Dita Von Teese, as well as rare illustrations of Christian Dior’s designs.
