Printing Fashion is a publication exploring the culture of printed fashion. It investigates the production and consumption of fashion publications while reflecting on the fashionability of printed media at the time of the digital. Printing Fashion analyses the magazine as a space of creation of imaginaries and creative encounters; but it also discloses the economic transactions, the conventions, the labour, the value exchanges, the material value, the hidden practices and figures that surround the making of a magazine. Each year the magazine focuses on a specific theme, reporting the experience of the people that produce, theorize and work in - and with - the magazine: printers, editors, academics, curators, photographers, stylists, translators, researchers, collectors, interns, advertisers, students, distributors, copywriters and many more. Created in collaboration with graphic designer Monica Fraile Morisson, the magazine is founded by Justin Morin and Marco Pecorari within the MA in Fashion Studies at The New School Parsons Paris. It is produced and distributed by KD Presse.
The first issue of Printing Fashion focuses on time.
We investigates the multiple relations that magazines develop with time: from the time of creation of visual and textual content to the moment of printing and distribution; from the ways in which a magazine encapsulate ephemerality to the afterlife of magazine and their role in private and public archives.
