More Than Just An Online Publication: Style Republic Mag

Mar 15, 2010 By Amy

With the evolution of technology and gadgets like the iPad continuing to challenge the future of print publications, many ambitious writers have taken their passion to the web by creating their own webzines that are stirring up some haute buzz in the fashion world. Enter Brittany Law, Creator and Editor-in-Chief of Style Republic Magazine, this young editor has transformed her love of writing and fashion into a full-time gig for herself. Law has had the opportunity to interview some of fashion’s best including Betsey Johnson and Donna Karan, along with venturing to New York for fashion week.

Launched in 2007, “Style Republic Magazine is so much more than just an online go-to publication,” explains Law. “It’s not a blog — it is a magazine. We run and operate just like a print publication. Editorial, deadlines, interviews, photo shoots… everything comes into play like it would in print, but digitally.”

We wanted to know, why an online magazine instead of print? Law tells us, “I love the world of online media, and 

tend to be very eco-friendly. I’ve been designing websites since the age of 10 (hard to fathom, I know), so a web-based magazine was an obvious choice. By starting Style Republic Magazine, I believe we are a bit ahead of the big picture. As much as I love the world of print, digital is so efficient — information can be obtained instantly, while photographs and video are often posted within moments of being shot.”

Major congratulations to Law!!! We will be keeping our eyes on how webzines such as hers continue to impact and challenge the big publications around the world. Check out Style Republic Magazine‘s feature on MyFDB.
