Pulp Magazine is not your average fashion magazine. While mainstream fashion publications offer A-list celebrities and top models on the cover and interviews with the who’s who of the international fashion and entertainment scenes on the inside smaller publications are able to challenge norms and notions of beauty by catering to a niche audience of fashion-obsessed readers with daring covers, longer articles and creative, boundary pushing editorials. That’s what Pulp Magazine offered readers when they launched Issue No. 4 at a VIP party at the Red Bull Space last Thursday.
Called the Innocence Issue, the Fall/Winter 2011 edition of the publication explores the innocence in creativity through young rising Canadian starlet Sarah Gadon, artist and sculptor Louise Bourgeois who is inspired by her childhood traumas and model and former Terry Richardson GF Susan Eldridge.
The bold face names of Toronto’s fashion scene mingled with the underground style elite (think Greta Constantine co-designer Kirk Pickersgill, former Pulp cover girl Tara Gill, Fashion Television host Glen Baxter and MuchMusic VJ Sarah Taylor rubbing shoulders with up-and-coming designer Amanda Lew Kee, a kilted Desire Kaniki and Fashion Collective‘s Dwayne Kennedy) were in the house while Kurtis B, the DJ with the golden guns, was on the ones and twos.
