White t-shirt and blue jeans
The project A March Issue is a remake of British Vogue March 2018 – cover to cover – replacing every image in the magazine with people wearing white t-shirt and blue jeans. The archetype of modern clothing; White t-shirt and blue jeans is the canvas for rethinking the glossy magazine and analyzing its features. A critical yet playful approach to the portrayal of fashion and people in mainstream fashion media. A study of every movement and gesture in the original magazine re-contextualized in the framework of a modern uniform, choice reduction and fashion detoxing.
Glossy, glamorous and full of promises.
Fashion magazines such as Vogue have a wide audience. We think that the results of this experiment deserve to have the chance to be shared with anyone who has ever held a glossy fashion magazine in their hands. Our remake of Vogue is a look into the underlying structures of fashion publishing and offers an honest, direct and relatable reflection on the poses and the people portrayed. By removing the ’fashion’ from a fashion magazine what is left? Have a look through ’A March Issue’ and judge for yourself.

Help us to share our idea with as many people as possible. Have a look at the right side of this page and (fingers crossed) pre-order a magazine.
