A Magazine Curated By is a fashion magazine that explores the universe of a chosen fashion designer in each issue. We invite a guest curator – an international fashion designer, group or house – to develop innovative, personalised content to express their aesthetic and cultural values. Each issue celebrates this designer’s ethos: their people, their passion, their stories, emotions, fascinations, spontaneity and authenticity.
N°A featuring Dirk Van Saene was the first A Magazine, initiated by Walter Van Beirendonck and art directed by Paul Boudens for the 2001 Landed Geland fashion festival in Antwerp. It was followed by N°B, N°C, N°D and N°E Magazines before A Magazine Curated By Maison Martin Margiela was released in 2004. Originally conceived as Belgium’s first fashion magazine, A Magazine Curated By quickly gained international acclaim for its intimate perspective into the minds of the world’s inspiring fashion designers working today.
