Next spring, Latin American fans of Chanel are in for a treat - for the first time ever, Karl Lagerfeld is taking the iconic brand to present in Havana, Cuba on May 3rd!  The Cruise 2017 show will follow similar international presentations in Seoul, Dubai, Miami, and Venice over the past few Cruise seasons, but as the first fashion house to reach out to Cuba since diplomatic relations with the US were established, we can foresee that the island will play a major role in the trends we see in upcoming collections; British trend forecasting agency WGSN has already tapped Cuba as the next major point of design inspiration, and Stella McCartney has already cited it in her current Resort collection notes.

I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
