In 1992 Olivier Zahm and his partner Elein Fleiss printed the first issue of Purple Prose, a Parisian literary art zine that over the years has evolved into Purple Fashion Magazine. Soon after the birth of Purple Prose, Zahm created spin-off publications like Purple Sexe, Purple Fiction and what we now know and love, Purple Fashion. Zahm aimed at fusing together his two worlds, fashion and art, in creating Purple and Purple Fashion. Purple Sexe remains one of the scarcest of the early Purple series', published in the same format as Purple Prose and Purple Fiction in late 1990s. A magazine devoted to sexuality, only 8 issues of Purple Sexe were ever published between 1998 - 2001, edited by Olivier Zahm and commencing the same year as Purple, which was a fusion of Purple Prose, Fiction, Fashion, and Sexe.
