Favourite wink from i-D in 2012? Xiao Wen Ju shot by Scott Trindle, #322. ♥ Xiao Wen.
Favourite story from i-D in 2012? K-Pop shot by CG Watkins, #319. 2012 was the year of K-Pop on YouTube, from T-Ara to 2NE1, from Gangnam to G-Dragon, sooooooooo fun.
Favourite colour from i-D in 2012? Frankie Wade’s violet-lime hair shot by Daniel Sannwald, #317. This shoot was super fun, there were lots of rude boys running around with their hair on fire… not Frankie though, he always keeps his cool AND he supports Spurs.

Favourite new discovery from i-D in 2012? Steve Roggenbuck shot by Sam Hessamian, #321. As Steve Roggenbuck says, ‘Never give up. If you give up, fuck you!’
