25th September 2013

Metro: Life & Style Cover with Sally and Sarah. Writer Arwa Haider

“Identical twin Sarah and Sally Edwards have been the independent identities behind BLAG magazine for an impressive 21 years.”

“...but BLAG’s attitude hasn’t faded: the sisters still co-direct, shoot and write all the content, presenting an unusually intimate on high-profile personalities.”

“While BLAG’s feature stars command the spotlight (previous issues have included exclusive pieces with musicians from Beastie Boys, Chuck D, Amy Winehouse to Hollywood actors Adrien Brody and Cillian Murphy), the sisters’ personalities drive its vision.”

25th September 2006

The Guardian. Writer: Matt Keating

“Unlike other style magazines, BLAG is self-consciously pop rather than underground. Interviews tend to be Q&A and conversational. And although it is a well put together glossy, the magazine has retained the fun voice of its origins.”

Time Out Student Guide. Writer Kate Miller

“A stylish hip-hop magazine. The well-written interviews have a very clean, fresh style and are accompanied by some better-than-your-average-indie-mag photographs.”

“They’re alone in the business in approaching these stereotypically tough rap guys and bringing out their softer side - something usually achieved by the girls’ disarming sense of humour.”
