The September Issues

£15.00

The September Issues aims to challenge and redefine women’s publishing. We set ourselves apart from our contemporaries by creating for an audience that is not only interested in fashion, but is politically and socially aware. 
 
The September Issues gives women creatives the opportunity to express themselves freely, explore their identities, and build a community without any constraints—a place where art, beauty, fashion, and topical issues can be discussed from a purely feminine perspective; a community that reflects the diversity and power of global femininity. 
 
We are unique in that this is a biannual magazine made by women.  Each issue will donate a portion of its proceeds to an organization which supports women, and for this issue we have chosen Planned Parenthood. Our goal is to make fashion, an industry intrinsically linked with the rights of women, a feminist issue. 
 
We celebrate all types of women, which is why the theme of our first issue is “The Power of the Femme.” All of our contributors for this issue have been asked to interpret this concept as they wish, because female empowerment isn’t just a marketing gimmick on a t-shirt—it’s a point that has become impossible to ignore. 
The magazine aims to share ideas of identity, discover ritual and ceremony; celebrate and champion women pioneers of the past and present, and those yet to come—exchanging the story of women’s lives through visual and intellectual vocabularies. 
 
Politically, the world is fragmented. Recent events have demonstrated that change is most definitely the only thing we can be sure of in this moment. We, The September Issues, want to be an active part of that change. We want to empower women by celebrating their achievements and strive for the creation of an influential voice of equality in our future society. 
 
Additional Info
We are redefining what a fashion magazine is and can be. 
Brands that advertise in the mag will know they are also supporting a specific organization that supports women that we select to sponsor for each issue.
We also approached each contributor because we love their work, and we want them to do whatever it is that they do without any rules. We don’t want any moodboards. We are trusting each artist’s vision.
We have a section called Pioneer where we feature influential women who crush barriers and inspire other women. Rather than have a simple interview, we give each pioneer a blank page to make their own artwork or do whatever they want with it. 
For the first issue we are featuring Winnie Harlow, Alma Har’el, Piera Gelardi, Zowie Broach, Zackary Drucker, Kelly-Eve Koopman + Sarah Summers.
Identity is our fashion pages where we let the contributors run wild with their concepts. Photographers include Nadine Ijewere, Amber Mahoney ft. Harry Charlsworth + Sussi, Trisha Ward ft. Lily Inge Newmark, Clare Shilland ft. Amber Anderson, Clara Nebeling, Prue Stent + Honey Long, Sarai Mari, Rebekah Campbell ft. Ali Michael, Arianna Lago, Rosaline Shahnavaz
Ritual is our beauty section where we talk about how ancient rituals pertain to our modern day practices. This issue focuses on ancient Egypt. Our 3 stories include modern day interpretations of the bob hair style, the cat eye ft beauty editor Georgina Graham, and clay masks and jewelry by beauty editor Tiziana Raimondo and photo by Mary Rozzi.
We have a really strong editorial section that features really authentic and honest and vulnerable stories told by women. Contributors featured in this section include Claude Cahun, NYC based Lula Hyers, still life photographer Jenny Van Sommers, NYC based Andrea Gentl and Oaxaca based Jessica Chrastil.
Then we have a big historical article about the 100 year history of Planned Parenthood
