Meet the Founders:
In 2014 with the help of her husband, Jamie Solorio (right) converted her 2 car garage into a multi use photo studio. In early 2015 With the hopes of expanding her photography portfolio, Jamie began a collaborative photo project with fashion designer Robin Fator (right). Their first successful editorial project was a boudoir series that included a handmade lingerie collection by Dark Pony Designs. What began as an artistic experiment, continued as a creative collaboration and slowly morphed into a business partnership.
Faced with the challenge of publishing their work, Jamie and Robin experienced the struggle that comes with navigating the world of fashion magazines. Quickly, they realized that playing by the old traditional rules of the the fashion world was slow and frustrating. After several brainstorming sessions that surrounded solving this problem, the idea of Real Fake Magazine and the Trenches Blog was born.
Robin and Jamie want to support and collaborate with independent artists and creatives while pulling back the curtain on the hidden world of the fashion editorial.
We have partnered with the best collaborators to bring the highest level of artistry and professionalism to our work. Real Fake Magazine is a publication dedicated to supporting emerging indie fashion, design, photography, and creativity.
With the launch of this magazine, we hope to take the art of fashion into the future.
A future that includes and supports artistic culture.
A future that encourages collaboration.
A future that breaks down the old barriers of status with a punk rock attitude.
We are pulling back the curtain of illusion.... join us!
