DESCRIPTION

Chiffon Magazine is an artist created and run Fashion/Culture magazine. Here you can feel the pulse of fashion, while looking into the people and places behind these trends. Our magazine will bring you the fashion industry from the behind the scenes. Obtuse thinking is out, open minded is in. Our mission at Chiffon Magazine is to provide a fashion forward, open minded point of view. We don’t see fashion as two sided. While most magazines either feature mainstream fashion or eco fashion, we bring together both worlds. Our articles will be creative and witty. Chiffon will add humor to fashion, making it more fun then ever. Whether you’re shopping for a new face wash or a “snuggie” bar crawl, we’ll have the trends ready for you’re viewing pleasure. We at Chiffon believe that fashion should be fun and not so serious. Come on, we all rocked out a pair of parachute pants at some time in our lives. It’s time to celebrate fashion and our culture, fab or ridiculous.
