A self deprecating print-only magazine embedded with humour and wit, MERDE reflects on fashion’s cultural landscape by exploring the creative process without a filter. With the aim to disrupt tired fashion narratives, each biannual issue picks a theme to explore -in all seriousness.
MERDE is ruled and empowered by atypical creative expression. MERDE explores the visions and voices of unlikely narratives from inside and outside the fashion scene, building a larger story of creative practices.
A publication with reflexive intuitions, MERDE aims to satisfy fashion’s postmodern desire for unconventional and subversive text and imagery.
The special larger Issue V navigates contradictions, controversy, and oppositions in the fashionscape. The cover editorial is shot by Alexander Massek in London, complimenting a story exploring form versus function by Matthew Burgos.
Contradictions, controversy, and oppositions in the fashion scape - the larger 5th issue of MERDE features contributors including:
Tom Brannigan, Matthew Burgos, Malorie Shmyr, Gab Bois, Lot28 Design, Dopl World, Daniel Arrnabar, Federico Cabrera and many more.
