Christina Menendez, a student at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, recently designed the inaugural issue of Fort Lauderdale Fashion Week Magazine. The publication was officially released at the 2018 Fort Lauderdale Fashion Week Opening Gala on March 15 to a crowd of more than 200 spectators and VIP guests.

Menendez, who will graduate in June 2018, is in her final quarter at Ai Fort Lauderdale earning her Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design*. Her work on the magazine was part of an internship program with the Fashion Week organization. Production for the publication began in February 2018 and only lasted 37 days. Menendez was solely responsible for design and layout of the magazine and worked with copywriters, photographers, and magazine’s publisher to produce the finished product.

The magazine will circulate four times a year as part of Fort Lauderdale Fashion Week’s growing presence among the South Florida fashion industry. The publication will showcase the latest in fashion while inspiring self-esteem and confidence in young designers. The 28-page first edition is available in a print edition and will soon be published digitally.

Now in its third year, Fort Lauderdale Fashion Week offers an international platform for regionally-based designers to seamlessly connect with media and buyers. The event aims to increase domestic awareness of home-grown fashion and increase the global presence of Fort Lauderdale’s designers.
