Fantôme: The Black Woman-Owned Alternative Magazine for the Darkly Inclined [Press Release]



Fantôme Magazine (formerly Prysm) Black woman-owned alternative publication is an inclusive space for like minds regardless of race, ethnicity, gender or creed.

Lithonia, Georgia (January, 2016) – Founded in 2011 by Editor-in-Chief and Creative Director Adaora Ngozi Onyioha Osimiri-Lewis, Fantôme is an art and culture magazine that focuses on the darker side of artistic expression. With a tagline that boasts, “Where darkness meets decadence”, the publication has set out to represent both the alternative subculture (industrial, goth, punk, metal, etc) and avant garde sensibilities through their coverage of fashion, film, music, and other forms of art.

As a multi-ethnic American whose roots are Nigerian and Cherokee Indian, Adaora’s greater mission above and beyond covering the underground scene is to bring awareness to the diversity of the alt scene nationally and internationally by showcasing people of various backgrounds who serve not only as fans but also creative forces.

To date, Prysm Magazine has released 7 issues. Under the new name of Fantôme, the publication is slated for a new release Spring 2016.

She is also the founder of Goth In The Raw; a raw vegan blog with a dark aesthetic that showcases the benefits of a plant-based diet for individuals, families and children. A vegan since the age of 16, she combines both natural foods and the alternative world through her recipes and advice, making it accessible to all. She will be releasing several cookbooks, food products and wares beginning Spring 2016; along with a YouTube Channel.
