An interview with Sarah Jane, Editor of Fashion Central
What gave you the idea to start Fashion Central? Upon joining Myspace, I was quickly inundated with friend requests from various clothing/jewellery sellers. I soon got frustrated with checking them all out individualy, and it occured to me that with so many sellers utiltising the site in this way, there ought to be a central area where they could commune, network, and where visitors could browse their goods more conveniently. Hence Fashion Central was born, and word spread so rapidly that we were soon achieveing thousands of hits a week, and it was out of this demand that Fashion Central magazine was launched.
What is the purpose of Fashion Central? Fashion Central is really a fashion family at heart. It’s about having a place to talk to like minded people, get advice on different areas of the industry, and to offer exposure for independant fashion talent that they are unable to generate for themselves. Of course, now that we have the online magazine, and online shop to launch soon, this is multiplied, with us now being able to showcase fantastic photography and goods that readers may not have come across themselves.
What does the magazine consist of? Each issue of Fashion Central magazine is set to a different theme, around which all the content, such as trend spreads, photography etc are based. For instance, the current edition is the Trashionista issue, featuring hot properties Audrey Kitching and Mosh, and covers nu rave, fetish, and electro. This means that we can represent diverse styles with each new issue, and hopefully offer something for everyone.
How often does the magazine come out? The magazine goes live on the first of each month, and is always completely free to read at fashioncentralmagazine.com
Where do you see Fashion Central in 5 years? Fashion Central has grown so quickly that it’s hard to predict what heights it will reach… 2008 sees lots of plans for the brand, with two new websites set to launch during the Spring, which look set to take us to a whole new level. Hopefully in five years time I’ll be able to have a day off!
Last but not least, what is your fashion must-have for this season? Personally, I’m pretty obsessed with brown and gold, so I’ve just invested in some metallic uggs… I love wearing a dress over jeans with some great boots, so winter is a great time for my wardrobe!
