Tangent, Style Sample & Manifesto – 3 online fashion magazines you will love!

I’d like to introduce you to a few online magazines that I’ve recently discovered. Isn’t it great to feel that you’re getting something for nothing – ie great glossy magazines that are free?

First up, an Australian online magazine, Tangent.

This mag interviews a HEAP of up-and-coming aussie designers, features couture boutiques like Brisbane’s Xile, and has stunning edgy fashion and make-up editorials. (I’m thrilled as an alternative type fashionista, to see House of Fetish garments and accessories used in styling some of the shoots).
There are so many links and designers and labels you probably don’t know – it will keep you entertained for hours!


Since many of us are bloggers, and in particular, style/fashion bloggers, this mag “Style Sample” is a GREAT read.  SS is now a year old actually, and is by, for, and about, fashion bloggers.  It really does foster a sense of community amongst fashion bloggers from all over the world.  Based in the US, it has contributors from all over.

The current issue includes a day in the life of Topshop merchandiser Steph, an article on the business of blogging, a great “How-to” on creating a video blog, and reviews and interviews with various bloggers (of course!)

The previous issue had a fab how-to on self-portrait photography from Sydney fashion photographer Zanita, and info on fashion in Jakarta, Indonesia from blogger Michelle of Glisters & Blisters. You just never know what you’re gonna get in this mag, but it’s always good!


This little beauty comes from the people behind the blog Fashion Nation, and has just started. Hence the first issue really outlines their manifesto and is fairly text heavy; but don’t despair, as there are plenty of fashion pics too!

I like that this comes from Singapore. Being an Australian, I’m acutely aware that despite being a Commonwealth country (with obvious ties to anglo countries like the UK, Canada and the US) we are slap-bang in the middle of Asia, and have definite influences and links to/from Asia.

One of the contributors is Nicole of Nicolethen online boutique and My Cherry Magazine blog. I met her when I was in Singapore for the Nuffnang Bloggers Symposium, and wrote about her store and Bonito Chico here. When it comes to Singaporean fashion, she really knows her stuff – ’nuff said.

That’s probably enough to keep you going for a few hours. What are YOUR fave fashion online mags? Drop me some links!
