We're even more excited for spring now.

Y'all know by now how we feel about Amandla Stenberg; the 17 year-old actress and activist is schooling the fashion industry right now, sitting front row at Marc Jacobs and dispelling truths about cultural appropriation on and off the runway.  She's a much needed voice in a sea of young women who feel the need to blend in, and her outspokenness has landed her some major cred in the industry (in the last year, she's covered both TeenVogue and DAZED).

This month, Amandla is the face of one of our favourite digital zines, decked out in bright boho feels in the California sun for ASOS Magazine.  Amandla spoke with ASOS about growing up with social media and founding Art Hoe Collective, discussing her vision for the representation of people of colour in the arts and media.  

Scope Amandla's shoot below and can catch her full interview over here.

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.
