AUTUMN VOLUME 005 THEME
"OPEN SEASONAL"
Have an autumn story to tell? Send it our way. We are accepting editorials that tell an autumn story. This means NO bathing suits or summery clothing. We do not have a specific theme for this issue but we would like to see fall fashions and colors.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for fashion editorials, illustrations and Fashion Designer interviews.

Editorials:

All editorials MUST be exclusive to Coco Indie for this particular issue. This means absolutely NO sneak peeks of any of the images before the issue is released. We encourage behind the scenes pictures and videos just remember to tag us. Images cannot be submitted to any other magazine once the issue is released. If we find accepted images are already published on any social media we will remove the images from the issue.

We are looking for dreamy & girly fashion stories with a variety of looks. Editorials must have 4+ wardrobe changes. A submission with one look is not an editorial. Editorials use a variety of looks/locations to convey a full editorial story.

Good news is; we accept all different types of wardrobe styling from high end designer, independent designer, vintage, hand made, store bought however please do not leave out the clothing credits. We do accept vintage however for this issue we will not be accepting full vintage stories. Please mix the vintage pieces with other pieces.

The theme can be taken in anyway that the photographer and team visualize. Have a look through our previous issues: "Browse the Issue" to find out what type of editorials we accept and have a look at our "Submission guidelines" to learn exactly how to submit to us.

DEADLINE: OCTOBER 21st 2016

RELEASE: NOVEMBER 1st 2016

If you are a designer or a creative who would like to be interviewed by Coco Indie please send us an e-mail with an introduction and examples of your work to submissionscocomagazine@gmail.com
