Accent AW16

Urban cowboys, the Alternative Miss World, trapeze artists and a trans opera diva.

In this issue:

Accent’s AW16 issue is dedicated to life’s entertainers — and those who set the stage. Two limited-edition covers feature two bright stars: Lucia Lucas, a transgender opera diva, and Andrew Logan, the eccentric artist and founder of the Alternative Miss World

Accent is a celebration of lives lived outside the ordinary — the free-spirits, the radicals and the beautiful misfits of this world
