British fashion magazine spotlighting independent designers set for international launch

2A Leeds consumer magazine focusing on independent fashion designers is set to re-launch next as an international publication. Founded in June 2010 as an e-zine about local fashion and events, Urban Coco moved into covering global affairs before launching its first printed edition last year.

Founder Laura Bartlett has since been approached by a distribution company and the magazine will be sold by fashion stores in London, New York, Paris and Milan.

Providing a platform for emerging design talent, each bi- monthly issue will include up to 200 pages of back-to-back fashion inspiration, editorial shoots and stories.
