~WHO WE ARE~
Originally founded as a family business, we’re essentially a UK based online magazine consisting of creative content producers with the same aspiring vision. Seeking specifically to expose the underground as well as highlight the well known. We cover all areas that implement modern culture including: music, fashion, the arts, politics and generally everything that makes life life. We’re so much more than just another magazine – we’re a platform enabling those with fresh and raw talent to get their work out there within those industries where it can be difficult to breakthrough.
Our ultimate goal is to provide a platform for artists/creatives from under-represented communities in the arts & media to showcase their work and talent. As a collective, we’re always on the lookout for section contributors and photographers to join the Ragged CULT family.
~WHY WE DIFFER FROM OTHER MAGAZINES~
We keep it real -unlike other magazines- by focusing on alternative as well as mainstream cultures; nowadays it’s rare to see publications featuring non filtered content. As an independent publication, we are liberated to talk the truth from our own personal experiences as well as others within the creative industries. Ragged CULT is more or less a physical manifestation of all of our unconventional personalities merged into one magazine.
THE ORIGINATOR – Chenaii Crawford Corri
Ragged CULT is the brain child and culmination of 25 years of working as a journalist writing about music, fashion and the arts. I’ve worked as a stylist for Wale Adeyemi MBE and have also been a stylist consultant and personal shopper. My love of politics, culture and the arts alongside many conversations with close friends and much encouragement from them both spurned me on and inspired me to follow my dream of starting and running my own magazine. My ultimate goal is to create a platform for up and coming writers and creatives to showcase their work.
THE CURATOR – Destiny Crawford Corri
Destiny is an FRA graduate and 21 years old. She has done photojournalism for five different magazines for nine years. She has also styled for urban brand B-Side Wale and Idol Magazine. She is currently the Music Editor, Editor-in-Chief, Web Designer, and Fashion & Arts Contributor for Ragged CULT Magazine. She is studying psychology and counselling as well as she would like to be a mental health advocate or therapist. She currently works as a PR Assistant Intern for Hidden PR Agency.
THE VISUALISER – My Superiority Complex
Hey, hey, hey my Gs, my Bs and all my fans from the oversees! It’s Charis here, a.k.a, My Superiority Complex. I’m an eclectic individual, a connoisseur of difference, an advocate for change, and an all-round ‘extraterrestrial’. With being one of the Creative Directors at Ragged CULT, as well as the Fashion and Beauty Director, and a freelance fashion and virtual stylist, I’m in a complexed relationship with fashion, style and beauty. As a champion for the avant-garde and anti-fashion, I’m drawn to the underrated, the under-represented and underground scenes and movements. To me clothes are more than the material its produced from, makeup’s more than the foundation – there are deeper connections and hidden meanings rooted behind the ideas, concepts, designs and products created within the industries. In a world compact with competition and cut-throat intentions, the pressure is present – it comes with its highs and lows as does everything else. In the end, it’s 100% worth the blood, sweat and press-passes, LOL.
