Here I am with the lovely birthday girl. Always photogenic and smiling, with a new found talent for cooking multiple perfect pizzas every time, she is the hostess with the mostest!
Here we all are together, minus a few absentees, and, although I may be the teeniest bit bias, and I must say, I feel they are all looking gorgeous. It got me thinking, as the birthday girl and a few of the others here were featured in our school fashion magazine and I had just read this article on Coco's Tea Party. I have had a sudden realisation, an epiphany: Why has the UK (though I'm not certain I can speak for the whole of it) not got a fashion magazine for teens? I'm not really talking about what is currently on the shelves at the moment, more Seventeen, as shown in the article, or Teen Vogue (preferable). The ones at the moment I feel only cater for younger teens and not ones particularly interested in high fashion at that.
Luckily, at our school, a group of sixth formers, many of which have blogs, pooled their talents together and created Fringe.
It is a great platform to showcase unknown talent within our school and gives students the opportunity to contribute to a magazine. Personally, I have written twice now for Fringe and I love doing it every single time as it enables me to come up with idea I'm passionate or interested about and write about it. It's fantastic being involved in smaller projects like this, but it still does not answer the question why Britain does not have one! There'd be a large market for it I feel?
