Buffalo Zine is a satirical fashion magazine with a cult following. For their ninth issue, they delve into the murky world of imitation, from copies to clones, fakes to frauds, parodists to plagiarists. As Pablo Picasso once said: good artists copy, great artists steal. Except he didn’t actually come up with that line. He copied it from T.S. Eliot.


At a time when referencing, borrowing and adapting are everywhere — but our obsession with authenticity and uniqueness has never been greater — what does it mean to be original today?


Commended for Editor of the Year at the 2019 Stack Awards
