Manik Mag has put out a preview of the types of fashion, reviews, and articles it will be putting out and I must say I am impressed. Im sorry if this comes off negative, but many of the plus size online publications have been falling short on their standards. I shall not name any names, but I have seen publications with terrible photo spreads, even worse fashion, and I have even seen one magazine in particular advertise.....deep breath....KNOCK OFF BAGS. I do remember when Mode magazine was out and I liked that one, but my point is none of the plus magazines out I would buy in print. I have been waiting for the day that a plus magazine uses the Vogue as their standard or any real fashion magazine for that matter.
I had the pleasure of previewing Manik Mag today and I must say it is on its way. If the first issue is anything like what I have seen in the preview count me in. The review of the boutiques and designers are really interesting offering a little more than your standard interview questions. The photos are on point, shout out to Redress - I really love the photo of the model in Vintage (above). The spreads of clothes and accessories are actually stuff I want to buy...imagine that. And to top it all off not only did the magazine plaster Lane Bryant and Ashley Stewart all over the place I didnt even see anything from those store...LOL...Im sorry but every plus size girl knows whats at those store we dont need a magzine to tell us. This is a plus magazine that I would actually pick up in the supermarket. So to the staff over at Manik Mag hats off and I can't wait for the 1st issue.
