About

Freya is a new magazine that explores current issues through fashion. Filled with inspiring, unique and intelligent content, the magazine is attractive both visually and substantively. Freya’s first issue will evolve around Muslim modest dress, exploring everything from the rise of Islamic sportswear to Europe’s obsession with the face-veil. Through the different categories; Fashion, Beauty, Lifestyle and Politics, the magazine covers a high range of topics that relate to the theme, but it also includes articles that explore femininity. Each issue Freya magazine will explore a new theme, aiming to stimulate awareness acceptance and tolerance for these current issues. If you are curious, please have a look on the Freya website.

The Editor: 

I'm Marloes Hagenaars and I created Freya magazine for my graduation project (MA Fashion Journalism at the London College of Fashion). Writing intelligent and in-depth articles that are related to fashion is something I'm passionate about and that feeds my creativity and curiosity. My mission for Freya magazine is to create more awareness, acceptance and tolerance for current issues. This first issue explores Muslim modest fashion and I would love to create a second issue that evolves around transgender and fashion.

The Magazine:

The magazine's size is 20cm X 26cm (7,9 in x 10,2 in), 120 pages, and all text is written in English. It includes photoshoots, fashion images and illustrations, but mainly in-depth and intelligently written articles. In the four months of creating Freya magazine I collaborated with many inspiring and professional journalists, photographers, models, illustrators, make-up artists, hair stylists and stylists. These multiple voices created a strong fashion magazine that explores Muslim modest fashion from different angles. (Art director: Laura Johnson.

Your help can make a difference

My goal is to print 400- 500 copies of Freya Magazine. These will be partly distributed to your home and I would love to sell the other part in a magazine or bookshop near you. So if you would like to buy a copy of the magazine, please select one of the rewards. The costs for launching this magazine include: printing costs, distribution costs and the license to use fonts.

How does funding work?: Kickstarter uses an all-or-nothing approach to fundraising. This means, that your payment will not be charged at this time but only if the project is successfully funded.   

Rewards

Besides funding Freya Magazine on Kickstarter you can also buy a variety of rewards. You can click on and buy these rewards on the right side of this Kickstarter page. 

Stretch goals Additional funds that may be raised through our campaign will be used for the following:
- Expansion of the magazine by printing and distributing more copies
- Investment for the printing costs of the second issue

Time Line

On the Freya website, Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter page you can follow the progress of this project but to give you an idea of what the next couple of weeks will look like, I created a time line.

February: 
- Launch of the Kickstarter project, hurray!
- Contact bookshops and magazine shops in Europe to see if they would be interested to sell the magazine. (fingers crossed)
- Update and improve the magazine to make it even better. (buy license for fonts, update images, meet with the printer to discuss printing options)

March:
- Deadline for the Kickstarter project
- Meet up with the printer to print Freya magazine!

April:
- Send Freya magazine to you lovely people
- Distribute Freya to a magazine or bookshop near you.

Risks and challenges

Whatever challenges this adventure brings, I'm down for them because I won't rest until the first issue of Freya Magazine is in your hands and on the shelves of the magazine shops. The magazine is already completed so it will be just a matter of time before you can read it from front to back. If you like the sound of this project, come and help to make Freya Magazine happen!
