The 20th birthday October special issue, on sale from today (15 September), contains 300 pages and features ads from designer brands such as Givenchy, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Burberry.

Launched in 1992 by photographer Rankin and journalist Jefferson Hack under the company name of Waddell, the title, named after a Led Zeppelin song, began life as a limited edition fold-out poster.

As the magazine grew, it became known for collaborating with artists, and the cover of its dedicated human rights edition in 2006 was designed by Damien Hirst and Barbara Kruger.

The title also underwent a redesign in 2006, launching a new website, www.dazeddigital.com, and adding 20 more fashion pages to the £3.95 magazine.

Rod Stanley, editor-in-chief of Dazed & Confused, said: "For our 20th anniversary issue, we have published our biggest issue in our history, with huge advertiser support.

"It's been a massive year for Dazed generally – we've had major world exclusives with Daft Punk, Beyoncé and Bjork. We launched our own festival of art, music and ideas, Dazed Live.

"As we head into our third decade, Dazed is established as the monthly publication of choice for smart, progressive and style-conscious young readers, both here in the UK and around the world."

The birthday edition also features a cover art project, with artists including Tracey Emin and Terence Koh redesigning some of the title’s iconic covers.

Dazed & Confused does not have an ABC figure, but reports an average monthly circulation of 90,529 globally.
