With its theme “Conscious Style,” CIVILIAN is a bi-monthly print/digital magazine with quality-art content featuring fashion, lifestyle, culture, and intimate dialogues.

CIVILIAN is a platform for everyone - to embrace people from all walks of life, regardless of race, ethnicity, educational background, religion, etc., so that each individual can feel encouraged to be who they are and fight all out to realize their goals and dreams. We feel it’s important for everyone to come together and unite at this time in society, instead of being suspicious of those who are different.

We profile 10+ influencers in each issue - from celebrities to professional athletes to business leaders to politicians to fashion designers to pop-culture stars - so when our audience reads the magazine, whatever they may be going through in their lives, this would encourage them to be the best version of themselves every single moment (which is always a tough inner battle against our lesser selves so we need comrades).
