Since the publication of its first issue in 1998, FLAUNT has inevitably evolved with the times. Under the direction of its founding editors, what began as a luxury fashion title has progressed into a full fledged lifestyle publication interested in both the serious and fanciful examination of issues relevant to the realms of fashion, art, film, music, media, and literature, and always with the original intent of preserving the publication's core values of constructive inquiry and artistic freedom. Flaunt is a wholly independent magazine published 10 times a year and distributed in 32 countries. The publication was recently named one of three finalists, chosen out of 2,800 entries, for a prestigious FOLIO award in the categories of Best Full Issue of a General Interest Magazine and Best Single Article in a Consumer Entertainment Magazine. The magazine also received three awards from PRINT for Excellence in Design, as well as a medal for editorial design from the Art Director's Club.
