Check this out: This new free online magazine is poised to shake up the fashion world with a focus on earth-friendly apparel and beauty products, paired with shrewd lifestyle and business advice.
Beauty Revolution Magazine launched at the end of January 2009 and already boasts tens of thousands of unique readers. Its contributors are movers and shakers in the fashion and media industries.
One of the most exciting things about the magazine is the way information is presented to readers – with a tactile, “e-flip” technology that makes it feel like a traditional paper product – but without the use of ink and trees.
My favorite features include nontraditional ways to be eco-responsible, yet glamorous (re-using vintage fur, for example)! A cool fashion spread shows the work of up-and-coming designers who’ve created outfits primarily from coffee beans, burlap and filters.
There’s also a great piece on hiking in Canada’s Purcell Mountains and introductions to natural beauty products and “going green.”
The magazine’s founders are hoping to create a forum for those in the fashion industry, as well as helping define the future of clothes and magazines. You can subscribe here: Beauty Revolution Magazine subscriptions.
