3. Zina, a fashion zine. A digital and print fashion zine which explores attitudes, behaviours and emotions within contemporary culture through a range of written and visual formats and presents a fashion editorial as an outcome. The debut edition is reflection, in all senses of the word, with narratives that touch on identity, social media, selfexpression, vanity and mental health.
e di t or s not e Dear Reader, It is with a warm heart that I would like to introduce you to the first edition of Zina- a lover, a creator, a simple but mighty force that is the embodiment of all of the beautiful minds who have come together to create this short zine. In all of my work I have felt the need to produce something real and honest, and in the months leading up to the birth of Zina I became increasingly aware of my relationship with technology and the direct impact it has on my state of being... And so the debut issue is based around the theme of Reflection; in all senses of the word: The reflections we catch of ourselves within the black mirrors of unlit screens; and the reflections which occur when we examine our own thoughts through introspect. Inside you will find an array of raw, uncut emotion, and feelings presented in different ways and sprinkled with a healthy dose of sass, manifested in a fashion editorial as the end result, hoping to entertain, inform and inspire you. So get comfortable, grab a cup of tea and dive in!
