FAKE is an independent visual arts and fashion magazine started by a graphic designer and a fashion stylist. The inspiration behind the publication was discovering that there was a wealth of unseen talent amongst our peers. We realised we had the perfect opportunity to showcase young, gifted, independent creatives. Not only this, there were many interesting projects happening under the radar that we believed deserved more recognition.
FREE — Released 17 November 2012
This is our first bumper free edition of FAKE, showcasing many of our favourite bits, and our readers’ recommendations over the past year or so. We’re almost on to our sixth issue, and as always we’re taking a look at how we can evolve FAKE further.
If you want to catch up on any FAKEs you’ve missed, see our online shop. Issue 001 and Issue 003 are sold out but you can see photos of them on our issues page. All proceeds go back into the production of our next issue.
