Monument / 2
“Monument oscillates between a DIY fanzine and a high-end journal. Such ambivalence in its materiality also reflects the publication’s unconventional concept—demonstrating how change in the trend-fixated fashion realm can be initiated and driven by retrospect”
—Valkan Dechev, Glamcult, August 2018
Monument is founded by Mary-Lou Berkulin and designed by Karen van de Kraats. The magazine focuses on Dutch fashion design around the turn of the century. Each issue is dedicated to a single designer or label, enabling the contributors to go in depth on the coming and passing of the designers who were part of the 1998 “Dutch wave”. It is the first publication to focus solely on these designers.
