AMAZING is a quarterly magazine all about Fashion, Art & Culture. Help us print our premiere issue & launch our AMAZING website.

UPDATE #1: What Makes Us Different?

What is AMAZING Magazine?

It is a smart, sophisticated and visually stunning print publication. We want AMAZING to be a beautiful, collectible art object in its own right and to broaden the parameters of what a 'fashion' magazine can be. Our primary goal is to showcase creative, intelligent, inventive fashion stories. 

AMAZING will have over a hundred pages of fashion in each issue, ranging from super elegant and classic to raw and edgy. We will feature both women and men in our stories and strive to have a racially balanced cast of models. We will NOT be celebrity driven or seek to portray women in a hyper sexualized way.

AMAZING will also have beautiful fashion illustration and include features and articles on art and artists we love.

We are launching a companion AMAZING web site, which will have lots of extra content not included in the printed issue, such as behind the scenes footage from our shoots and filmed artist interviews.

Who are we?

The founders of AMAZING Magazine are Tracy Wingrove and Donald Lawrence. We are both fashion industry insiders with many years of experience in the business. 

Tracy trained as a Fashion Designer at Central St. Martins in London before moving to New York. She has worked in many different creative fields, most recently as a Set Designer. 

Donald attended FIT in NYC and has worked as a Fashion Stylist for nearly twenty years. 

We recently joined forces and have been working together as Creative Directors, overseeing every aspect of a photo shoot. 

We started AMAZING Magazine as a showcase for our own work and for the work of the many talented people we have collaborated with over the years. We have assembled a solid roster of key players from around the globe including brilliant photographers, illustrators, writers, hair stylists, make-up artists and more.

Other core staff members of AMAZING Magazine include:  

Kathryn Payne (Art Director), Alex Enman (Video Director), Samantha Hall (Online Editor) & Andrew Lockhart (Art Editor). 

Why support us? 

We and our team have been working tirelessly for months to photograph, write, illustrate, art direct and proof read our first issue. It is completely finished and we have our print run set up, using one of the best printers in North America. AMAZING will be beautifully printed on heavyweight matte paper. We also have distribution arranged, both in the US and Europe . 

But we need to pay for the printing and distribution and also for further development of our AMAZING website. That's why we have come to Kickstarter. Please help us realize our goal of publishing our beautiful magazine. 

One of our rewards: a set of ten b&w postcards with beautiful images from our AMAZING shoots.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We are confident that we have everything in place to successfully produce the first print issue of AMAZING Magazine if we reach our funding goal. The issue is completely finished, proof read & laid out. We have the printer & distribution lined up & ready to go. We just need to pay for the printing. Of course, if, due to unforseen circumstances, we are delayed in producing the magazine or any of our rewards we will contact you immediately & let you know.

How we fund subsequent issues will be largely dependant on ad sales. We have had a very good response from potential advertisers who are anxious to see our first issue in print. Hopefully, thanks to your generous support we will soon have our beautiful first edition ready to show them.
