Cecilia Dean on Visionaire 63, the World's First All-Metal Magazine
We've all heard the phrase "Nothing lasts forever," but Visionaire is seeking to disprove that theory with its 63rd edition. Titled "Forever" and entirely made of metal, the magazine is a collaboration with G-Shock and features eight imprinted images by artists like Inez & Vinoodh, Craig McDean, Karl Lagerfeld, Yoko Ono, Richard Avedon, Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari in a metal casing--it's the world's first all metal magazine. The party took the silvery metal theme and ran with it. The Clocktower Gallery was transformed into a silver playland complete with silver confetti, mylar balloons, and even glitter cocktails. Guests including Cecilia Dean, James Kaliardos, Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea, Ladyfag, Hilary Rhoda, Heidi Mount, Constance Jablonski, and Vika Gazinskaya committed to the metallic theme with glittering outfits or accessories, although no one tried harder than a girl wearing light up mouse ears. We caught up with Visionaire founder and all-over inspirational person Cecilia Dean to get the low down on how the magazine was made and what she wishes could last forever.
