Boyfriend is a London based publication created by a team of fashion creatives who love the storytelling you can do with fashion.
It’s SEXY – In the pages of Boyfriend, you’ll find fashion forward works that explore themes of masculinity and femininity in a powerful way.
It’s BOLD – Exploring fashion means taking risks, will you wear everything in our pages? Probably not! But will it give you some inspiration to take some bolder styling choices – ABSOLUTELY!
It’s INTELLIGENT – We love a good article or interview, and our mag speaks to industry insiders about what makes them tick, how did they make it into the industry, and what do they see happening next…
It’s INSPIRING – As little boys and girls, we remember how magical it was reading the pages of some of our fave fashion mags and dreaming about the fantasies they created – and we truly feel our mag will do just that – regardless of your age.
We’re not just a mag for reading though, if you are a fashion creative, we wanted to create a place for you too! As working professionals ourselves, we know just how hard it is to get published.
We wanted to simplify that process, and open up our publication to ALL creatives regardless of their experience, credits or popularity – our criteria is based on TALENT.
With this in mind, we regularly open up submissions for our print & digital issue, and also for online exclusive webitorials – check out our submissions page for current opportunities.
We also work closely with leading industry creatives on commissioning shoots to ensure that we celebrate their talents too.
So who are we?
