FASHION magazine celebrates 40 years with specially commissioned "tulle" portrait cover

Fashion magazine is celebrating 40 years of style publishing with a specially commissioned cover for its November issue. It is a tulle portrait of Canadian model Amber Whitcomb by celebrated London, England, artist Benjamin Shine.
The artwork, valued at over C$30,000 is to be auctioned at a private event with the proceeds to be used to support emerging fashion design talent at Ryerson University.  

The print edition of the magazine will be on newsstands October 9 in Canada and on October 24 in the U.S. at selected Barnes & Noble locations.

The cover shoot includes access to a cinematic short film by Erik Swain. In the film, Witcomb recites Lord Byron’s famed poem “She Walks in Beauty,” which is the theme for the cover and the cover feature. A 19-page fall fashion shoot with Witcomb highlights the season’s defining looks; and a special 20-page feature includes archival images as well as interviews from past contributors. Behind-the-scenes anniversary-related content is available at fashionmagazine.com/fashioncanada40.
“This has been an epic experience,” said Noreen Flanagan, editor-in-chief of FASHION [in a release]. “I was taken with Benjamin’s work when I saw the tulle piece he created for Maison Margiela earlier this year. I was intrigued with the idea of him creating one for our cover because tulle is such a celebratory fabric. It’s traditionally worn at the most significant moments in our lives. Turning 40 is significant—whether you’re a woman or a magazine!”
