Winter 2012: Letter from the editor
Donning a tuxedo suit and tassel earrings, and adding a touch of metallic makeup, will ensure we all ring in 2012 in style. But after the party streamers are swept off to recycling, we promise to keep the festivities going. Next year marks FASHION’s 35th anniversary, and you’re all invited to join the celebrations.
We have lots of exciting surprises planned to mark this significant milestone. Beginning in February, each 2012 issue will offer a package of anniversary-themed stories. We’ll be digging into our archives to bring you the photos we feel are as captivating today as when they were snapped. We will be honouring stylish Canadians from coast to coast, and we will turn the spotlight on many of the designers and brands that are also observing milestone birthdays in 2012.
The February issue will also herald our 10th Annual Readers’ Choice Beauty Awards and the inauguration of a Beauty Hall of Fame, where your most-loved mascaras, face creams and lip balms will receive extra-special recognition.
Best of all, we’ll be saying thanks to you for making us Canada’s No. 1 fashion and beauty magazine for the eighth straight year, according to the PMB (Print Measurement Bureau) readership results released this fall. Those results are an endorsement of our stellar team, many of whom willingly give up their nights and weekends (even the sunny summer ones) to produce the best fashion and beauty magazine in Canada.
In recognition of your support, we will be showing our gratitude with lots of contests and special giveaways, starting with an all-expenses-paid trip to Oahu, Hawaii. Our team got a taste of Oahu when they flew there for “Scuba Do” (page 171) and “Tux Deluxe” (page 184). Between shots, our fashion director Susie Sheffman even paddled out and surfed her first wave.
