Mirror Mirror Magazine #8 The Launch

Mirror Mirror Magazine

Mirror Mirror Magazine is the newest, bi-annual, beauty magazine on the Dutch market. The glossy is founded by Georgette Koning, who also is the editor-in-chief and creative-director. Issue number 8 was launched the other day at the New Werktheater in Amsterdam, the headquarters of ‘…,staat’, the ad-company responsible for the design and art-direction of this issue of Mirror Mirror.

#8 Spring 2019

We, at Mimi Berlin, went to the launch because we were invited ànd are always very gespannt to flip through the pages of this lovely mag, it’s one of our favorite actually. The newest issue is filled with tons of editorials and interesting reads. Interviews with, for example, Violet Chacki, the famous dragqueen and Val Garland, global director of L’Oréal and with Sandra Govers, a make-up artist who is a collector of fake eyelashes ànd a read about beauty-product design. Stuff you won’t find in your average beauty magazine, we feel like. We will spare you mentioning all the editorials because that’s a long list as well. Just go and see for yourself is our suggestion.

The Spring 2019 issue has 4 different covers to choose from. Cover 3, photographed by Philippe Vogelenzang was revealed by Juno Dijkshoorn, the make-up artist for this photo.

Georgette Koning

In the 1980s Ms Koning (graduated as fashion-designer) designed bags, she had her own label called ‘Pearls for Swans’. She also designed for large(r) companies, such as for example; Thierry Mugler. Konings made a careerswitch in 1995 and started writing for several newspapers, such as the Dutch Qualitätszeitung NRC Handelsblad, and magazines such as Avantgarde and Vogue Italia. She has her own on-line magazine as well it’s named Independent Fashion Daily, which is written in Dutch only, unfortunately.

Mirror Mirror is available at bookstores and at of course at Athenaeum in Amsterdam where the magazine will have a feature shopwindow in April 2019.

Chicago Clubkids are Fashion Icons und Pop Stars

Chicago Clubkids are Fashion Icons und Pop Stars

The clubkids who roam the clubs of Chicago nowadays are a special bunch, Imp Queen and WannaBonbon are 2 examples. Two creative persons who express themselves mainly with their own face and body, fabric and paint. They are fashion icons, pop stars, amazing make-up artists and all-round performers.

LGBT+ Community

These ‘Drag Queen’s’du jour, do not only expose themselves in a surreal and graphic way. No. Real Life, out of drag, is shared as well: @ImpKid shows a shooting-hormones-session live on Insta! As you all know; we, at Mimi Berlin, are old, and thus we have “something to say about that”! We aren’t are prudent bunch, we’ve only encountered someone shooting hormones en plein publique once: in a bar. But that was not filmed for an 10K audience! That’s the reason we have to mention this live feed. Guess we just have to get used to the modern way of sharing everything……What do you think?

Gustav Brostrom’s Beauty Multi Masks on Instagram

Gustav Brostrom’s Beauty Multi Masks on Instagram

The instagram feed of Gustav Brostrom from Stockholm, Sweden, is filled with selfies made of his face covered in different beauty masks at the same time. Gustav mixes facial masks, patches, foams and what have you not, to create lovely images of himself. (yes we know they are called selfies)

Multimasking was the newest rage in 2015, a beauty trend we, at Mimi Berlin, completely missed out on. Basically it’s targeted skincare. By putting on multiple facial masks, or layer them simultaneously on the skin, you can treat different skin concerns at one time. Gustav Brostrom takes multimasking to the next level. Fun!
