AGENDA Cover Oct2017Agenda October 2017, is the first monthly print issue from agendamag.com. It is a fashion and lifestyle series, spotlighting designers, runway, editorials, and fashion discussion with the focus on global fashion. Featured in this glossy magazine are designers and fashion runway from Sydney, Moscow, Paris, and Berlin. Fashion interviews are with designer Kevan Hall and the activewear clothing line Avocado.

Chase Masterson from Star Trek: Deep Space 9 gives a compelling interview about her long, successful acting career. This 2-part interview gives us background on her charity The Pop Culture Hero Coalition, a 501 c. 3 that helps youth combat bullies. The charity is backed by the United Nations.

Having already photographed 208 hands, German photographer Marc Mennigmann is interviewed about his photo series entitled The HANDS PROJECT. The photo series features mostly musicians from all over the world, where he photographs their hands with his Leica Monochrom camera, and shoots exclusively in black and white. The hands of Grammy-nominated bassist Bunny Brunel, pioneering guitarist Jon Gomm, and jazz composer, pianist, organist, and bandleader Carla Bley were photographed by Mennigmann, and featured in this interview. There is also a pictorial of Mennigmann actually shooting the hands of several legendary musicians, including drummer Steve Gadd, pianist Adam Holzman, Adrien Belew, and others. Mennigman does a special portrait of Agenda‘s editor in chief Kaylene Peoples.
