biannually

Hit The Ground! The Ground (formerly known as Virgine) is the bi-annual magazine that looks at the world of fine art, fashion, and music through a fresh set of eyes. It profiles emerging and lesser known talent from 2010 CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund runner-up fashion designer Prabal Gurung to New York based electronic music duo The Black Soft. The Ground is both style conscious and socially conscious as it plugs the charities of some its contributors in a section they loving call “Charity Tweet” where fashion designer Prabal Gurung discusses how his Shikshya Foundation and The Maiti Nepal organization empower women and victims of human trafficking. Printed on matte card stock, The Ground Magazine features:

  • Insightful feature articles
  • Exciting fashion editorials
  • Black & white/color photography
  • Sample art work

For all of those creative folks out there searching for a platform in which to share their work, The Ground Magazine has created an online community called The Ground Social specifically designed for artists and writers looking for exposure. Users simply create a personal profile and upload their work samples where they can be viewed by The Ground Magazine editors, contributors, industry professionals, and public users.
