What's is Issue One

 

INSIDE ISSUE ONE

In French, they call it a 'fil conducteur' – the invisible electrically-charged current that connects people and their personal journeys.

In Issue One of FAIRE we share 12 in-depth stories (10+ pages per feature) of creatives from across the globe encompassing the U.S.A., Australia, Canada, Ireland, England, Germany, Sweden, Wales, France and Italy. These are stories of new beginnings; healing through creativity and nature, and creating good and beauty out of the darkest of times.

Complementing these lead features, we also have a story about new talent and another about the best kept secret sources for vintage & antique textiles at the Paris Flea market.
