LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- As the concept of "celebrity" morphs away from the world of movie, TV, music, theatre and author stardom to who's-who online, fashion icon photographer Ash Gupta has created a new online magazine to feature this community with the launch of Worldwide Influence The Magazine. Sponsored by Cirem Cosmetics and Skin Care (www.cirem.com), a debut event inviting LA's media community is set for 7:30 – 11:30 pm at the SIXTY Beverly Hills, 9360 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90212. Featured megastars of the social media universe who are in the inaugural online issue will be in attendance including the list below. The magazine will become available for viewing on November 19th and behind-the-scenes coverage and deeper insight can be found on the Instagram page. A printed version of the magazine will be published twice a year. For more information and to submit for RSVP consideration, please click here.
The video-driven, conceptual-styled online magazine breaks all rules of the traditional media world and, under Gupta's direction, is curated by his group of creatives including video content creators and producers, artists, photographers, stylists and trend-setters.
"After shooting every major model and celebrity from Jennifer Lawrence to the Guggenheim family," explains internationally-known fashion photographer Ash Gupta, "it was my 16-year-old daughter and numerous young artists who made me realize how much the concept of celebrity has changed. Inspired, I set out to ignite my group into creating what this new generation craves in the digital form. For the media community, there are new rules, a new language, a new way of marketing and connecting that I felt really needed a voice."
The sections of the magazine include:
Q&A feature stories: Video-produced Q&As with the crème de la crème of YouTube, Instagram and beyond. These story-forward and cinematically-produced pieces delve into the private homes and personal opinions of influencers whose work has attracted millions of viewers.
The Tribe: Fashion-styled 1-minute videos with up-and-coming influencers who need to be recognized.
The Mugshot: An engaging glimpse of top fashion models seen as never before.
Weekly segment – Hosted by Fletcher Does America, this segment features interviews with influencers giving their raw opinions about everything from rap culture to the dating scene and politics.
Photo Editorial layouts – A themed take on the traditional photo layout, this section will be dictated by the fashion seasons of Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. An upcoming issue will feature influencer's managers in the most desired brands of the moment.
Art column – Plucked from Gupta's community of wild and wonderful artists, this section will begin with an aspect of fashion that will be destructed and then reconstructed into new pieces of inspiration.
