On Russh Magazine
I am a self-proclaimed minimalist. Is this accurate? I'm not quite sure. All I know is I hate having things; I hate clutter. Perhaps I am partial to a blank, white space because it opens my mind and allows my imagination to run free. If the white wall above my bed had a poster, I wouldn't be able to sleep at night. I'd be too distracted by the image.
When I adopted this "minimalist" way of life, I stopped collecting things: coffee mugs with kooky sayings, Barbie dolls, free AOL CDs, crime scene "DO NOT CROSS" barricade tape, etc.
However, there is one very particular thing that I can't seem to stop collecting no matter how hard I try: magazines. Like a pack rat, I have acquired a stack of magazines the size of a mountain, and I can't seem to part with it. Let's just say I hope my house never catches on fire because my room would go up in flames in two seconds flat.
Russh Magazine, the bi-monthly Australian publication, is one of my favorites.
The images are stunningly provocative and the design is slick, clean and minimalist -just how I like it!
Established in 2004, the aim of the magazine is to showcase Australian fashion. The target audience is 18 to 30-year-old women.
Considering that major fashion publications are primarily published in the U.S. and Europe, I think it's exciting that a magazine from our friends "down under" is competing with the big boys.
