AnOther Magazine‘s launch in 2001 heralded a new chapter in magazine publishing. Its blend of high fashion and world-class photography with features on the arts, politics and literature continues to make each beautifully crafted edition a collectors item. Published twice a year, AnOther Magazine quickly established a reputation for highly original content brought together in its pages by an emerging set of photographers, stylists and writers bound by a search for creativity and authenticity. Counting Rihanna, Julianne Moore, Nicole Kidman, Jodie Foster, Natalie Portman, Michelle Williams and Tilda Swinton amongst its impressive run of leading Hollywood cover stars, it is now the most recognised biannual fashion magazine in the world.
