EDITOR’S NOTE Phenomenal FASHION Real fashion lovers know that it’s about more than just clothing, it’s a form of expression, a way to convey a message, a route to accomplish a mission. In this issue, we honor three particularly stellar designers who have mastered all that and more. Like many of us, these designers pour their hearts and life purposes into their craft, going beyond just “making a dress” to creating collections that make a difference. Although they hail from different walks of life and create garments that serve different purposes, they all share the same vision of love, authenticity, and sustainability. As always, we’re so excited for all of the amazing submissions we have in store. It’s been a while since we’ve had all of our original favorite photographers in one place (shoutout to Faiyaz, Raphael, Ron, and Aleksandr) and I personally couldn’t be more happy. This is another beautiful one thanks to you and all of our new contributors as well. Thank you all so much again for your patience in this overly extended delay. It’s been a crazy road getting here but we did! Now please go enjoy. PEACE + ESTELA | 5
