FKA Twigs Launches Instagram Digizine

In What's New, Industry News by Lauren Parker, Accessories Magazine

FKA twigs, one of our favorite gals for jewelry inspiration (septum ring, you know who to thank!) has a new venture. AVANTgarden, which launched today, is an original digizine to be built and distributed using Instagram’s slides feature.

Part magic, part-memoir, AVANTgarden will be an unfiltered 10 “page” Instagram series, available to her growing number of 1.4 million followers, live on @fkatwigs. Each issue will explore FKA twigs’ experiences and exploration of the self and provide a platform for collaboration throughout the worlds of music, art, fashion and beyond, drawing on her extended creative family.

The first issue of AVANTgarden, titled ‘ROOTS. SHOCK. BEAUTY.’ is a visual exploration of braided hair styles and features a host of FKA twigs’ friends and long-term collaborators including editor Suzannah Pettigrew, stylist Matthew Joseph and hair stylist Rio Shreedharan among others.

“AVANTGarden is a way for me to express myself without any rules or guidelines, with imagination and care,” says the English singer, songwriter, record producer, director and dancer.
