Varoom – The Fashion Issue


When is that perfect moment of Fashion, when you could be perfectly, ‘in Fashion’?

This is the kind of offbeat musing that Fashion projects often provoke. And Varoom 28 features many extravagantly offbeat visual ideas, from Prada’s use of illustration, via the feature on Fashion and Film which includes images created from a games engine by Reed + Rader, to the story of the uncommonly fabulous Flair magazine which ran for a single year, to our exclusive extract from a new book that identifies and illustrates the differing dress worn by over 40 Catholic nuns, illustrated by Ryan Todd.

Bridget Strevens-Marzo gives us a window on the different Children’s book fashions in the UK and France, and reflects on some timeless visual traits and more recent fashions. Regular contributor Marian Bantjes delivers an enigmatic uniquely crafted double-page image, and columnist Paul Davis takes his cutting scissors through fashion trends, rip-offs and the need for new clichés. Quentin Jones created Varoom 28’s striking cover image.
