Our Story

We are Sunday Girl and we're so happy to have you in our space!

We are firstly an independent magazine for young women who are yearning for something different from the usual glossies on the newsstand. We are organic, authentic, independent and we are a collective.

I am Abigail the founding editor of Sunday Girl and had the idea for this magazine and community during my final year at University in 2015. Whilst growing up I struggled to find magazines to read which really spoke to me. Rather than the gossip pages of glossies, I yearned for a publication which introduced me to inspirational girls, ambitious women who believed in themselves, poetry and new music, literature, new designers and beautiful fashion editorials and hearing about issues from like minded women who were going through the same things as me. I launched issue 1 and then I didn’t feel like the Sunday Girl journey ended there.


I connected with national distributors who loved the magazine and found it different and new, before I knew it, Sunday Girl was stocked nationally, in WHSmiths, Selfridges, Independent bookstores from Kent to Cornwall, Edinburgh to Teesside park. Shortly after, we went international to multiple countries, 500 Barnes and Noble stores in America and we were tagged in stores in Tokyo, Paris, Berlin and even places I’d never heard of. It really was a whirlwind!


We eventually scaled back down to just U.K. distribution due to a multitude of reasons, the main being the sustainability factor. Head to our stockist page to pick up a copy near you.


We are proudly based in Middlesbrough in the North East and have just moved in to a wonderful, town centre based office space.

Words about Sunday Girl Magazine by Libby Borton from Magalleria, Bath

Of all the girls who represent a day of the week, Sunday should be the best. Monday’s drawling, Tuesday’s boring, Wednesday and Thursday wolf-whistle Friday, who’s too busy chatting up Saturday to notice. Sunday Girl’s pyjamaed until twelve, sleepy and searching for something sweet, swaddled in blanket, barefoot; effortlessly dressed in a cool and comfortable style, approachable and accessible. It’s this understated, relaxed atmosphere which makes Sunday Girl so easy to get along with. She’s unfussy, unflustered, almost wallflower-like, ready to talk about anything from heartbreak to empowerment. She speaks with integrity.

'It is not enough just to be well-known or famous, it is always searching for substance, the woman behind the brand.'

Sunday Girl is not just one, but many, a cascade of creative voices. Volume Four features Emma Mercury, founder of The Messy Heads and Chelsea Miller, founder of WeBelieve, indie-rock star, Sydney Lima, and model Lily Jean Bridger. In comparison to The Messy Heads, Sunday Girl is a stylish younger sibling, with more focus on fashion. Even though these women are powerful, representing their own brand or company, the articles and interviews are conversational, and you’re presented with more intimate information than answers Google could give you. It seems that is their slant. It is not enough just to be well-known or famous, it is always searching for substance, the woman behind the brand. That way, we’re included in something more personal than a plain interview.

A ‘Fashion Magazine for Intellectual Girls’, Sunday Girl keeps a keen eye for aesthetic. Unlike Sisteror Polyester who make a point of badly photoshopping or provoking eye-popping colour, Sunday Girl uses a similar scrapbook-like aesthetic, which carries from their graphic design of cut-and-pasted poster girls (not Karlie Kloss, think more Claudette Colvin or Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit) into their eclectic photography. Its softer palette suits its easy style, the fashion of which is loose and appealing, punk t-shirts layered with gauze and lace. They celebrate finding your feet and developing your style, shifting from leather to glitter and mixing the two; it’s all part of the playful process of forming identity. Its prom photoshoot injects a sense of Americana nostalgia.

The beauty of youth is its unassuming naturalness, the attraction to oblivious feminine tenderness. It’s the one young adult magazine that dwells in the nuances of the present; it’s not whipping you to grow up or act your age (what does that even mean, anyway?). Sunday Girl is about liberation and inspiration, some serious topics without the dour faces. The virtue of youth is its unending vitality and verve.
