When we heard about Candy, “the first transversal fashion magazine,” we were dying to know what it would all be about. A bubbly pink cover and a brief statement explaining the mag’s dedication to “transvestism, transexuality, cross dressing and androgyny” seemed intriguing, but left us wanting more. Fashion Indie got a look at a photo shoot from the first issue—the result is very high-fashion. Photographer Karim Sadii captured model Callum Wilson, who boasts a beautifully androgynous look in jeweled corsets, Shakespearean-looking gowns, and conceptual head pieces. What do you think?

The fashion industry may have a long-standing tendency to exclude certain groups and cultures, but more and more we’re seeing this change as people begin challenging the status quo. Now the transsexual community is getting a voice with a new style publication. Billed as “the first transversal fashion magazine,” Candy has just debuted its premiere issue in a limited-edition circulation of only 1,000 copies. The indie publication doesn’t reveal too much through its main online information source, a Facebook fan page, but its official statement explains that the mag is “completely dedicated to celebrating transvestism, transexuality, cross dressing and androgyny, in all its manifestations … CANDY is a magazine for everybody. A space for individual freedom, and a publication that pushes people to take on the persona of what they always wanted to be.”
