Fault magazine collaborates with artists in the fashion, film and music industry.

Fault Magazine also invests in new and emerging talent in the areas of art and design, literature, music, film and photography. Little Mix appeared in the January 2014 and November 2016 issue of Fault.
Little Mix had a photo-shoot for the the British magazine Fault's 17th issue, as well as being on the music section cover of the magazine. The Magazine's 17th issue features Naomie Harris on the front cover and Jeremy Piven on the reversible back cover. Its official release was on January 31, 2014.
Interviewer:Amidst all of your worldwide success, how do you keep yourself grounded?
Perrie: I think our families keep us really grounded, like our mams and dads would give us a slap if we got out of line. We surround ourselves with positive people who don’t blow smoke up our bums.
Jade: Yeah, they’re not constantly like “can I do anything for you? Do you need anything?” It’s much more casual than that. They tell us to carry our own bags.
Interviewer:You’ve described your new album as ‘make or break’: does that make you more nervous about it?
Jesy: I’m excited more than nervous. This album is a step up from our first album and that was successful, so I’m not nervous. I don’t mean that in a big-headed way but I just feel so proud of it because we’ve worked so hard on it. It’s matured more, it’s more R ‘n’ B and we’ve put so much into it.
Leigh-Anne: We’ve got our core fan base and we really want to get other people on board as well. There’s people who wouldn’t listen to Little Mix because they think we’re quite young, but this album proves that we cater for everyone. There’s no reason a 27 year old man can’t listen to Little Mix. We’re cool, OK!
Interviewer:Have you always wanted to move towards that R ‘n’ B direction?
Perrie: It comes with maturity. We are maturing and we want our fan base to mature with us; we want to widen our fan base. As an artist, you always want to take one step further, gain more and get bigger. You just want to update everything.
Leigh-Anne: Our main thing is our vocal harmonies and as soon as people hear a song, no matter what genre it is, they know it’s Little Mix because of the way our voices come together and the little things we do. We love having brass in our songs and this album has quite a military theme going through it.
FAULT 17 (featuring a 12 page spread with Little Mix) is available now, and is available for delivery worldwide.
Little Mix took part in an online photoshoot for the magazine, as well as giving an interview during the month of November 2016.
"Often referred to as this generation’s Spice Girls, Little Mix are just on the cusp of releasing their latest album Glory Days. The girls are no newcomers to the FAULT scene, having previously been featured in issue 17– back when Salute was only just being released. It has been a while since and the foursome has surely done some growing up in the meanwhile. We caught up with Little Mix ahead of their album release and here’s their take on the past 5 years of their careers."
