  1. Flaunt

    Flaunt is a monthly American fashion culture magazine founded by the current editor-in-chief, Luis Barajas, and creative director, Jim Turner, also the founders of Detour magazine. Long Nguyen, a third founder and style director, also was working on Detour for four years. Flaunt was established in September 1998. Since the publication of its first issue, Flaunt has continued to be an ongoing metamorphosis of new ideas and territories. Under the direction of its founding editors, what began as a luxury fashion title has progressed into a full-fledged lifestyle publication interested in both the serious and fanciful examinations of issues relevant to the realms of fashion, art, film, music, media, and literature, and always keeping the original intent of preserving the core value of constructive inquiry and artistic freedom. Flaunt is a wholly independent magazine published 10 times a year and distributed in over 32 countries. The publication was recently named one of three finalists, chosen out of 2,800 entries, for a prestigious FOLIO Award in the categories of Best Full Issue of a General Interest Magazine and Best Single Article in a Consumer Entertainment Magazine. The magazine also received three awards from PRINT for Excellence in Design, as well as a medal for editorial design from the Art Director's Club.
