 COSMO Girl Shuts down...Hmm

WWD just announced the shut down of COSMO  Girl…I will be sensitive to the fashionistas that will now loose their jobs( that sucks),December will be the last issue.Nonetheless as people in media, we should pay more attention to our surroundings…For alot of publications it’s just a matter of time…Don’t get me wrong I still get so much happiness from flipping through mags and reading great features, but some marketing tactics  and features are just dated…

Where I stand fashion magazines should become more special, the disposability of them makes the eco- consciousness inside of me cringe!In the end I think they should become more like books, things people would want to keep,but for that they would  have to get beyond trends, and if we must constantly revert to celebrities let’s have something substantial to say about them…As women don’t we love to hear our peers deepest experiences and world  views ect…I know  alot of them have so much more to talk about than their favorite shopping spots…

Not that  there is ANYTHING wrong with a satisfying shopping spree,but you get me right?
