The Biggest Fashion Stories of the Year

From storymakers like fka Twigs and Lucky Blue Smith, to major overhauls at our favourite brands, 2015 was an eventful year for Couturesque readers.
Here's what our readers couldn't get enough of.

This year was an exciting one here at Couturesque - we celebrated our 1 Year Anniversary in April, knocked it out of the park with major interviews (Pandora Sykes and Tanya Taylor, anyone?), grew our team to almost double its size, attended our first international fashion week, and relaunched our Beauty Department.  *insert pause to catch breath*

Looking back, it kind of seems like a whirlwind, but all of this crazy success wouldn't have been possible without the support of readers like you.  That's why we think it's so important to reflect on the year gone by, and to dissect what content y'all loved and had to go share with your friends.  Ergo: the biggest stories (and storymakers) of 2015.

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.
