The magazine focuses on fashion and the power of online influence.

This edition has two covers, one of which featured Kim Kardashian, who – love her or hate her- has had a huge influence online.

The other edition featured Irish blogger Sinead Burke, who you may know as Mini Melange.

Sinead is a writer, and activist for disability rights and inclusion.

Speaking about being featured on the cover of the magazine, Sinead said: “Fashion Must Include Everyone: Thank you Tim Walker for translating my ambition and vision into this extraordinary image, to @imranamed and @BoF for shaping and amplifying this movement, to @timblanks for his visit to Dublin and his excellent, curious questions and to @Burberry for their collaboration in the reassembly of the system of fashion.

“I am honoured to be on the cover of #BoF‘s Age of Influence print issue.”

She also spoke about what it was like to work with photographer Tim Walker.

‘Entering Tim Walker’s studio was a very surreal experience. Meeting him and working with him was on my list of things that I wanted to accomplish but it was firmly in the category of, ‘I’m not sure this will ever happen’.”

She explained. “When @imranamed called me and said that Tim was going to shoot the #AgeofInfluencer cover for @BoF, I thought he was joking and my reaction was a mix of a laugh and a cough. The shoot was sensational and this image was one of the first photos we captured. In this moment, it was just me, Tim and his assistants Sarah and Tony. It was intimate – Tim was inches from my face – but it was also emotional.

“I love the honesty, vulnerability, confidence, uncertainty and slight humour it exhibits. With an extraordinary cashmere jumper, silk dinner jacket and beautifully ostentatious brooch from @Burberry, it was the perfect moment.”
