Turkish fashion magazines // Türk moda dergileri

One thing I miss about living in the U.S, is sitting at Border’s bookstore, sipping coffee, and looking at all the fashion magazines at my hearts content.  Since looking-at-magazines-for-free ideal does not work too well in the Turkish culture (taking things for granted issue), I had a chance to peruse the Turkish magazine stands at D&R and purchase a few.  There are the Turkish versions of Elle, In Style, Cosmo, etc. But I really wanted to look at Turkish based magazines.  I happened to find only two so far.

First one is a magazine called Trendsetter. I have read this magazine several times before. I find it to improve each and every issue.  The magazine covers everything from design to fashion to literature.  It is quite extensive with amazing editorials and graphic design.  I have actually assisted (and sorta modeled for) one of the guest photographers before – but more on that later.  Here is a great set of editorials from a Turkish photographer named Eda Alpman I found on Flickr.

The second one is called 2de1.  It is more fashion based and as expensive as foreign magazines but the quality is exceptional.  I would say the mood of the magazine a little bit more avantgarde than your typical fashion magazines. But I think this is what keeps the magazine going.  I recommend it for the great shoots and variety.

On another note, as I was walking on Bagdat Street, I was gleeful to find my favorite magazine People Style on the news stand.  It was one of the few magazines that I was sure I was going to miss. It is great feeling to know that I can walk over a few blocks and grab it when I need it!

Amerika yaşarken en büyük zevkleridmen biri D&R tarzı olan Borders´a gidip kahve eşliğinde dünyanın her bir yerinden gelen moda magazinlerini tırtıklamak olurdu.  Ancak o tarz birşeyi burada yapma imkanı olmadığından mecburen bir kaç tane magazin alıp evde kurcaladım.  Tipik yabancı yapımların türkçeleştirilmiş versyonları yerine, halis mulis Türk moda magazinlerini merak ettim ve iki tane buldum.  Bunlardan biri Trendsetter diğeri ise 2´de 1. Her ikisi başka tarz olsada gayet başarılı buldum.  Trendsetter´ı önceden almışlığım var. Ama her sayıda sanki daha da iyileşiyorlar.  Muhteşem editöryelleri Vogue editöryellerini aratacağını pekte sanmıyorum açıkcası.  Ayrıca grafik tasarımları ve edebiyata ayırdığı bölümde moda magazininden daha da fazla birşey olduğunu ıspatlıyor. 2de1 ise biraz daha farklı ve avantgard´ımsı bir havası var. Fiyatı bayağı yüksek olduğu halde insan eline alınca kaliteli sayfalarından gayet memnun kalıyor.  Daha çok inceleyemedim ama arşivlik olacağı kesin.

Bu arada orada en çok okuduğum (daha doğrusu baktığım) magazin olan People Style´ı Bağdat Caddesinde bir gazeticide gördüm. İnanılmaz sevindim :)  Benim en büyük ilham kaynaklarımdan bir tanesi bu magazin çünkü.
