SLEEK 51 Autumn 16
Welcome to the autumn issue of SLEEK – order here!
As summer comes to an end and autumn draws near, a feeling of new beginnings fills the air. SLEEK 51 celebrates this sensation of change with an issue dedicated to the creative minds rebelling against society’s preconceptions regarding fashion and art. Cover star FATIMA AL QADIRI is a prime example of this spirit, as an artist and musician whose visionary works defy both genre and geographical boundary. “Comic Expressions” is a continuation of this theme, as Will Furtado analyses humour’s role in redefining artistic norms. Following this pattern is an examination on the changing face of print by Osman Ahmed and Ida Bencke, while our fashion editorial shot on-location in Iceland displays this season’s newest designs amidst an ever-changing landscape.
