You are a thinker, not only about the words you say but also about the clothes you wear. The world inspires you around you, but you also question it, just like you do with your wardrobe. You’re multifaceted, with a vibrant spirit that craves passion and purpose.
At FORWARD, we believe in the power of passion and purpose working together. As a cutting-edge publication in a dynamic city, we champion and spark innovation in fashion. Ugyen Wangmo, the trailblazer behind Toronto’s unrivalled fashion magazine, understands the influence fashion holds over the city’s economy.
“You demanded change and innovation, and we listened.”
Toronto, once a stronghold of self-sufficiency, now finds itself swamped by external corporations offering only short-lived economic benefits to our community. Have we overlooked the vibrant essence pulsating beneath the city’s facade? You crave change, but it seems elusive among the superficial perfection found in conventional fashion magazines. Change emerges from the passionate entrepreneurs and dedicated volunteers in Toronto’s fashion realm. Change arrives with FORWARDFashion, a magazine committed to genuinely celebrating the rich diversity of our city. You called for change, and we answered.
About FORWARDFashion Magazine
FORWARDFashion Magazine is an independent publication offering print-on-demand and digital editions led by Ugyen Wangmo. We actively engage with the community, fostering a shared identity and providing a supportive platform for artists to express themselves through our daily online content. We recognize the urgency of adopting eco-friendly business practices and combating paper waste and deforestation.
Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, FORWARDFashion is more than just a fashion magazine. It’s a creative playground, celebrating and observing the city’s local talent while promoting a global evolution of creativity and critical thinking.
Toronto, one of the most multicultural cities in the world, boasts a unique fashion scene. Unfortunately, the media has not always reflected this diversity. No other magazine is solely devoted to local talent or recognizes the value of diverse artistic expression beyond mainstream success.
The abundant talent and innovation shaping Toronto’s fashion and beauty industries and beyond inspire the pages of FORWARDFashion. With a mission to authentically represent our community, we’re leading a new era in magazine publishing.
Published biannually, each edition of FORWARDFashion features a mix of high fashion, stunning photography, and articles showcasing Canadian talent. Every beautifully crafted issue is a collector’s item.
Embracing diversity, inclusivity, and intellect, FORWARDFashion is filled with exclusive Toronto-based content that perfectly reflects our community and its growth. Each seasonal issue is a time capsule of the city’s fashion and beauty landscape. We go beyond seasonal trends, championing local voices in fashion and encouraging creative freedom. No one is left behind, as we pride ourselves on equal representation. Our magazine bridges the gap between academia and the fashion industry, connecting philosophy and practice through critically examining the contemporary scene, history, and theory.
We acknowledge social and cultural movements and their impact on fashion. We strive to sustainably guide the industry’s progression by analyzing and interpreting potential futures. FF
