Print materials in street fashion

Street fashion has always had an upper edge to plain old regular fashion. It has transcended social norms by reflecting them in the streets. It influences the cut-and-dry fashion industry, which influences street wear in turn. And it influences print, too.

Fashion is a Canadian fashion magazine published by St. Joseph Media. Established in 1977, it is currently based in Toronto (with satellite offices in Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal), publishes 10 issues a year and has a total readership of 1.85 million (PMB Oct 2010).
 

 
A magazine is a periodical publication containing a variety of articles, generally financed by advertising and/or purchase by readers.
Magazines are typically published weekly, biweekly, monthly, bimonthly or quarterly, with a date on the cover that is in advance of the date it is actually published. They are often printed in color on coated paper, and are bound with a soft cover.
Magazines fall into two broad categories: consumer magazines and business magazines. In practice, magazines are a subset of periodicals, distinct from those periodicals produced by scientific, artistic, academic or special interest publishers which are subscription-only, more expensive, narrowly limited in circulation, and often have little or no advertising.
Magazines can be classified as:

  • General interest magazines (e.g. FrontlineIndia TodayThe WeekThe Sunday Times etc.)
  • Special interest magazines (women’s, sports, business, scuba diving, etc.)
