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 Nostalgia Edition…
From the original artwork, through to the articles and fashion editorials, each piece reflects Nostalgia, the theme the issue was built around. Rachael Marian tells us about her adventures in her retro caravan, Clementine; Sam Groves explores the history, and the future, of the Pop Up Cinema, and Lee Crutchley gives us his Take on Fake. Loaf’s Tom Baker reminds us why the kitchen should be the heart of the home and Jenny Wiles enlightens us about Salford’s musical history. Holly Levell’s beautiful felt pieces are the perfect accompaniment to an article about iconic packaging and the memories it evokes, whilst Olivia Smith Nicholls discusses the delicate subject of Alzheimer’s and the effects of a lifetime of memories fading away.
