Vogue Arabia’s Historic Print Edition Launches

Vogue Arabia’s First Print Edition

The long-awaited inaugural print issue of Vogue Arabia, the 22nd global edition of the world’s most prestigious fashion magazine, will go on sale from March 5th, seeing the authoritativeVogue voice speak directly to the Middle East and the wider Arab diaspora for the first time.

 

The March issue launch cover, shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin exclusively for Vogue Arabia, features Gigi Hadid—a supermodel with Arab roots via her Palestinian father—styled in a uniquely Arabian way.  With a face veil, how beautiful she looks.

Vogue Arabia’s Print Edition

“Vogue Arabia is a magazine with the authority and insight needed to capture the creativity of a distinctive, evolving, and often misrepresented part of the world,” says Vogue Arabia’s Editor-in-Chief, Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz. “The collage of countries across the Arab world are long-deserving of a place in fashion history,” she continues, “and there’s no better first ‘face’ to lead the charge for Vogue Arabia than Gigi — a model who defines tomorrow’s entrepreneurial and dynamic generation.”

You’d be darned to find a day of the year as prestigious as the first Monday of May. First held in 1948, the Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, was founded to encourage donations from New York’s high society and today the most recognisable faces from fashion, art, music and film gather to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute and commemorate the opening of the museums latest exhibition. Founded by Eleanor Lambert, Anna Wintour has taken reign of the event since 1995, raising almost $175 million and enlisting the most prominent names to co-chair the events including the likes of Beyonce, Pharrell Williams, Marc Jacobs and Gisele Bundchen. The 2018 Met Gala, which also marks the 70th anniversary of the soiree will be co-chaired by Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace and sponsors include Apple, Condé Nast, Farfetch, H&M, Maison Valentino and Warner Bros.

The 80s were a fabulous time in fashion. Across the fashion capitals, structured shoulders, bodysuits and sequins were amongst some of the biggest and wildest trends commanding centre stage. While all of that was happening, somewhere, under the warm Californian sun, Shawn Stüssy was somewhere printing t shirts with the same signature that appeared on his surfboards. Probably little did he know that decades later his printed trademark signature on simple graphic tees would decades later play a part in streetwear becoming one of the most lucrative fashion business models of the 21st century.
