Welcome to the September issue of JUNO, our luxurious fashion and lifestyle magazine, free inside this week’s Sunday Independent. We are celebrating fashion’s most dramatic and abundant season with pages and pages of striking editorial, showcasing the stunning creativity of international and Irish designers, and feeling love.
Fashion is in many moods this autumn, from rebel chicks to fifties flirts.
We’ve been really struck by the focus on black leather and knitwear and how it is reframing our notions of strength and structure.
So we made that JUNO’s theme; how to gain strength and structure in your life.
All our contributors explored those qualities and what has been really interesting is how they all came back with the same conclusions - structure builds life, as well as one’s wardrobe.
Commitment to it leads to contentment, feeling more fulfilled, and feeling more love.
Be sure to visit JUNO online for lots of exclusive interviews with our contributors, behind the scenes access to our fashion shoots as well as exclusive shots that won’t be seen anywhere else.
Our fashion editorial, Heroine of a Thousand Faces is a visual exploration of the relationship between mythology, fashion and landscape.
JUNO entered the history annals by being the first ever photographic crew to shoot on Skellig Michael.
We have wonderful footage online of that great adventure that you won’t want to miss.
We think it tops American Vogue’s recent Kerry experience hands down.
Continuing our focus on structure we asked the divine Roz Purcell to model the fascinating contraptions by which lingerie creates stunning silhouette.
