Plot Summary: N/A

Critical Evaluation:  Kiki Magazine is an interactive fashion magazine published quarterly for teen girls. Unlike typical fashion magazines such as Seventeen or Cosmo Girl, Kiki’s primary message is to emphasize creative self-expression over unrealistic ideals of glamour and beauty. Kiki is owned and operated by women who care about teen girls so that is why Kiki doesn’t focus on the topics that are usually seen dominating the pages of other teen magazines, such as gossip, articles on dating, sensuality, instructions on how to kiss, and tips on getting sexy abs. Instead, Kiki uses a college fashion design curriculum to tap into teen girls' creativity. Through fashion, readers explore not only the business world, but fine arts, crafts, history, world culture, and even math. The aim of the magazine is to show teen girls that having fun with style and artistry is completely compatible with intelligence and creativity. Kiki inspires girls to do rather than watch, to make rather than consume.
