ESTILA is a monthly lifestyle magazine, digital and in print, which launched in September 2015 with a mission to “empower through style”.
The magazine doesn’t follow trends as such, rather it showcases unique point of view on timeless, understated yet elegant living. From home, fashion, shopping to beauty and travel, our readers can get inspired by beautiful imagery and helpful advice from our expert contributors.
ESTILA tries to avoid the information overload and so its layout and content is easy on the eye and fluid. The magazine’s strength is providing highly visual inspiring experience and informative content.
But behind all that there is a strong message that the magazine wants to put across. Through its interview life stories, it wants to encourage women to take charge of their lives and destiny. To showcase powerful journeys that inspire, give confidence and encouragement to take control and change the direction, if necessary, in order to fulfill dreams and live a happy life.
FROM REAL WOMEN TO REAL WOMEN
The magazine is written by real women who became experts and authorities in their own niches through years of experience in their professional and personal life. We only pick the best contributors we can find and hence each month our issues feature exclusive content that doesn’t become predictable.
We publish our digital issues monthly and print issues quarterly. Our website is filled with weekly, original content that is different from our issues. It serves as a platform for up-and-coming independent brands and designers to showcase their talent and tell their story. You can follow us for updates and behind the scenes on Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter. If you’d like to submit your product, design project or story, please go here. You can find our latest issue here.
The magazine was founded by an interior designer Karolina Barnes. After feeling overwhelmed with endless information from reading print magazines, online publications and blogs, I decided to create a publication which curates the best content and focuses more on sophisticated style rather than trends. I’m the firm believer that style can be empowering, whether that’s through having a nice home or expressing your personality through wardrobe, if we let ourselves to explore who we truly are. My mission is to inspire you in your everyday life. To bring you modern family homes from around the world. To give you tips and advice from interior, fashion and beauty experts. To show you how to make a simple yet special midweek dinner. But most of all, I want to tell you life stories of the women I meet, who are passionate about the things they do. Through their stories, I hope, we can trigger a spark in you, which will set you on a new journey so even you can grow and reach your own potential. To find out more about our team, please click here.
