As August comes around again I can not help but feel a twinge of sadness as that means Summer nears a close. There is something to be said, though, for the new opportunities that come with this month. For The August Issue I wanted to evoke a feeling of power and inspiration. When I sat down to speak with Nancy Stone I was in complete astonishment that she had worked with one of the world’s most renowned designers and held such an important position. Nancy reminded me of how much the fashion industry has changed over the years, it made me think back to why I love it so deeply—it is constantly evolving and re-inventing itself. Hearing her stories about what it was like working so closely with Halston, from creating and then personally delivering his sketches to writing on his birthday cakes, I was in awe. I think that working for someone of that caliber is an incredible opportunity. This August, as Summer comes to a close, I urge all of you incredible readers to go out and try something new, go find a new opportunity. I would like to give a huge thank you to Nancy Stone for being a part of this issue. To all of you extraordinary readers, I thank you for all of your continuous support and I hope that you enjoy this issue and experience a sense of new power and importance from it.
