Dazed Media is the world’s leading independent fashion and culture media brand.

The title became a lightning rod for cultural provocation – radically reframing international style culture. Today, we are an agenda-setting publishing powerhouse and the most efficient way to reach the world’s most influential audiences.
Dazed Media powers an ever-evolving network of premium digital channels and iconic print titles including Dazed, AnOther, Another Man, Hunger and NOWNESS. Dazed Media Studio has a pioneering creative studio, award-winning video production, exclusive events, industry-leading talent network and efficient third-party distribution.
