Arise Magazine! 2008 issue! =)


I was in Barnes and Nobles and I discovered lots of fashion magazines I got so excited! I want to buy them all I kept debating with myself onwhich one to buy! Ugh I should have brought this one! lol but this is an issue from 2008 I loved it!

The publication was launched at the THISDAY Music & Fashion Festival at London's Royal Albert Hall on October 14, 2008 - an event made famous by former US Secretary of State Colin Powell dancing the Yahoozee on stage.ARISE is now a monthly quality glossy, sold at newsstands in London, New York, Washington DC, Paris, Milan, Nigeria and South Africa. ARISE is aimed at readership from the global African diaspora that share an interest in the cultural triumphs and positive social developments coming out of the continent.ARISE is now a monthly quality glossy, sold at newsstands in London, New York, Washington DC, Paris,...

It aims to redress the imbalance in the portrayal of Africa, by much of the international media, by communicating the landmark successes that Africans, and people of African descent, have achieved in fields as varied as fashion, business and politics." these are just a few photos from 08' Enjoy! =)
