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.

What’s inside The Nature Edition…
Andy Reeve talks to us about the Nature that is all around us with accompanying photography from himself and Considerate Trespassing. Paul Askew has penned the first poem we have published, on the subject of alcoholic pigeons no less! Lee Crutchley brings us the intriguing short story, ‘The Feather’ and Sarah Seaton takes us through the ins and out of the musical community in ‘Vibes, Creative Tribes & Survival’. Laura Booth enlightens us on the current, environmentally friendly trend of Upcycling, Miriam Sturdee regales us with her personal experiences with Taxidermy and we hear the ramblings of five boys on the touchy subject of Naturism. In another first for FAKE, this issue we have a recipe for a hearty ‘Stinger Soup’ courtesy of Sarah Plant, beautifully illustrated by Laura Goodhew. Our centrefold is work of photographic magician, Matt Walford.
As usual, we have features from both Editors; Kerry writes of her first experience of The Secret Supper Society, and Sophie again takes the reins of regular fashion feature, ‘Faking It’. Our other regular back page feature ‘A Different Take on Fake’, is this time written by Mathew Leslie Frost and tackles the subject of designer fakes.
Accompanying all this are our beautifully shot fashion editorials and, new this issue, we have introduced menswear. This is something you, our readers have told us you would like to see and it’s been great to take such a positive step forward.
