For a fashion professional, lover and devotee, it is difficult to find and access all the information in existing fashion media. Online information is scattered over a variety of sources and offline media is even more inaccessible. To make matters worse; It’s almost impossible and, incredibly expensive to receive foreign magazines at home. Fashion lovers worldwide ask themselves: ”Why is it so diﬃcult to access everything fashion in one place?” A strange question considering the magazine media market for women’s interest accounts for a total of 145 billion Dollars in annual revenue.
