Last year my ever so thoughtful buddy copped me a copy of ARISE magazine, a new glossy published by the people behind This Day Africa, the charity dedicated to bringing awareness of the issues affecting Africa through fashion and music. I  have to say; the magazine was truly breathtaking. The cover featured catwalk goddesses Alek Wek, Naomi Campbell and Liya Kebede, and inside there were back to back fashion shoots with models donning couture from predominantly African designers. The second issue of the magazine is out on sale now. But in these economically challenging times, I really had to think twice about the hefty  £4.95 cover price (didn't they get the memo on recession), and ended up picking up a 65p copy of Star magazine instead. Blah!

I have just come across this; they were giving out copies at London Fashion Week and I must admit it is pretty slick.

This is a nice mag. I wish we had this in the States.

Its available in Barnes and Noble in the states and its 11.95 dollars.Thats the most expensive magazine ,but I guess its worth it for the nag which is really stunning.Im just wondering how the mag will continue to be produced with the recession and the fact that actual magazines are going the online route.
