The new Mini Maven kids fashion magazine is nearly ready with issue two and we have a sneak peek preview today to get you excited for the launch on September 15th.

The USA has seen a lot of new kids fashion magazine launches over the past two years and Mini Maven is the first West Coast L.A based magazine launched by photographer and director Kymberly Marciano which features both her own shoots and worldwide guest photographers stories.

The first issue was an impressive weight to me so it will be very interesting to see issue two. My choice shoot from the issue is by British photographer Julia Bostock in a classic English seaside story, the weather in the UK has been amazing this week and the seaside is still very busy with visitors despite the back to school moment.

The new Mini Maven issue celebrates icons with over 185 pages of cutting edge fashion editorials with inspirations from favourite style icons including Twiggy, Brigitte Bardot, James Dean, Frida Khalo, Charlie’s Angels and the lovable Mickey Mouse, to name a few!

Wistful with inspiration from the past and evocative with current fashion influences, the Iconic Issue takes a look into the hippest brands on the scene with a fresh sophisticated take on global Fall/Winter kids fashion collections.
