Issue 7 of Pigeons & Peacocks magazine has finally hit the shelves of newsagents nationwide and I'm so, so proud of this one. As many of my friends will know, the best part of 2013 was spent building up to a summer of travels this year. Driven by my own sense of wanderlust, this issue of Pigeons & Peacocks is one of exploration, and I think, our most far-reaching yet. A personal desire to travel and see the world, to explore foreign lands and become immersed in other cultures has influenced the contents of the latest P&P and has left me with quite the emotional attachment to this particular issue. It was bloody hard work but we pulled it off.
Issue 7 is a journey through fashion across all seven continents. It's a testament to an extended network of talent, that reaches way beyond this little island of ours. Fashion is not London-centric, it spans the globe. With shoots in exotic locales, from Asia to America, Europe and Antarctica, interviews with hot, international design talent and articles exploring fashion and culture across continents, this issue is all about new horizons.
Our New Horizons issue showcases the work of designers and stylists to photographers, writers, illustrators and everyone in between. Interviews in this issue include footwear sensation Sophia Webster, Lady Gaga's fave new LCF designer Christian Cowan-Sanluis, Hong Kong born LFW designer Ryan Lo and Afro-American albino model Shaun Ross(star of Lana Del Rey's short film Tropico). Our Sound of Style feature introduces rising stars in music including Atlantic Records-signed singer-songwriter Rae Morris, with an accompanying shoot by successful portrait photographer Neil Bedford..
Pigeons & Peacocks, as ever, aims to inspire and I'm in no doubt that this issue's content will certainly tick that box. I hope, if you do pick up a copy of the magazine, that you enjoy the journey just as much as I have enjoyed planning and creating it.
Pick up a copy of P&P at a WHSmiths or indie newsagents near you. Our magazine is also available to buy online from 8 September.
