The new magazine is available as a downloadable app for the iPhone or iPad.

Compared To Honey and Suede Magazines

Readers of “1966 Magazine” are comparing it to past publications like “Honey” and “Suede.” These magazines enriched the lives of generations of black women, keeping them up to date on all of the latest trends. Unfortunately those magazines are no longer around, but the Suggs sisters have modeled their “1966 Magazine” on these historic magazines and are intent on bringing back the glory days of fashion and style magazines created especially for young, ‘got it going on’ women of color.

According to Arianne Suggs, “there is already a built-in audience eager for the return of this type of publication.” A recent article remembering the heyday of “Suede” magazine ignited a firestorm of memories as readers of this iconic publication flooded the comment box with things like, “Suede was our Vogue…only upgraded” and I LOVED me some Suede, especially the shots of the Chic sistas just out and about on the streets…sad indeed…guess we jus gotta keep supporting our blog sistas/fashionistas.” Suggs is eager and ready to receive that support.
