Issue 11 | Truth is Stranger Than Fiction (AW15)
A little mystery never hurt anyone. As a child she lived through the many adventures, heartbreaks and revelations had by the protagonists in her passed-down collection of family books. The words of Jane Austen, Emily Dickinson and Charlotte Bronte monopolized most of her days until she realized all the smart, stubborn and dazzling characters that she loved so much were not created simply to entertain, but to inspire… and that it was time to seek out and live adventures of her own. However offbeat, sporadic or unexpected these paths may be, she’s grown to realize the best thing one can do is be their own hero or heroine. Issue 11, Truth is Stranger than Fiction, is an ode to the girl that always keeps us guessing.
Autumn / Winter 2015 welcomes another exceptional Zeum girl (and print issue!) modelled around an old-fashioned phrase. A little note: Don’t hesitate to lean towards simplicity if that’s your style. We love analogue and natural light, and simple studio shoots may be just what we need to balance out the chaos that could accompany this theme. For a little bit of inspiration, pay attention to our abstracted mood board, colour swatches & AW15 runway picks, and don’t forget to check out our guidelines here! (Please read carefully!)
