Autumn / Winter 2001
AnOther Magazine's launch in 2001 heralded a new chapter in magazine publishing. Its blend of high fashion and world-class photography with intelligent features on the arts, politics and literature set it apart, and continues to make each beautifully crafted edition an essential purchase for anyone with an interest in fashion and culture.
AnOther Magazine has established a reputation for highly original content brought together in its pages by an established and emerging set of photographers, stylists and writers bound by a search for creativity and authenticity. Counting Nicole Kidman, Jodie Foster, Natalie Portman and Tilda Swinton amongst its impressive run of leading Hollywood cover stars, it is the most recognised biannual fashion magazine in the world.
Another Magazine is published twice a year in September and February around the international fashion weeks.
This issue of AnOther Magazine is an exploration of the heroic: the valiant, noble, audacious, brave. However one chooses to define the word, the world has rarely needed heroes – people to look up to, be inspired by, and learn from – more than they do today.
