Frock Paper Scissors

At this time of the year, when the days of the week start getting confused (mid-week Christmas parties have me thinking every day is Friday), there could be nothing better than a bright, bold and clever read to take your mind off what to buy yourself for Christmas. Presenting: Frock Paper Scissors, an annual magazine published by fashion, journalism, interactive visual design, media and communication students of Queensland University of Technology (QUT).

This is an entirely-student created mag bursting with editorial featuring both mens and womenswear (I particularly liked 'In Excess', all pompom earrings and clashing prints), interesting articles on anything and everything from a discussion about wearing the hijab to the impact of online shopping to fashion retail. Best of all, it's free from the Frock Paper Scissors website, where you can also find past issues (2012 marks the seventh year of this awesome student collaboration).

I wanted to share it with you guys because I think it's important for students to gain practical experience in their industry, experience working on a magazine like Frock offers in bucketloads. Also, this is a polished and diverse read and I think their hard work deserves to be widely read! Think of it like an Australian answer to Worn Journal, but with more budgie smugglers. And if you don't know what a 'budgie smuggler' is, pages nine and ten should sort you out. Enjoy!
