Editor’s note

SHE Canada - - CONTENT - EDITOR S.M. Kam­ran Zaidi

It’s that time of year again when the air is crisp and the an­tic­i­pa­tion of snow is upon us all. Here at SHE, we’ve cu­rated the best looks inspired from Septem­ber’s Fash­ion Weeks that de­buted in New York, Lon­don, Mi­lan and Paris. Un­sure of what to wear this win­ter? Head on over to p.10 where we’ve cho­sen the looks that you can be com­fort­able and chic in all at once. And yes, you heard right – the ‘60s are in­deed back in our clos­ets. Find the re­vamped mod looks from half a cen­tury ago on p. 22. There’s some­thing for ev­ery­one in our top-rated wardrobe picks this sea­son.

There’s also a run­ning theme in our Oc­to­ber/novem­ber is­sue: beauty and brains. We fea­ture ex­clu­sive in­ter­views with suc­cess­ful women who pos­sess both of these qual­i­ties. On p. 14 our Ex­ec­u­tive Editor, Priya Ku­mar, chats with fash­ion and busi­ness mogul, Caro­line Issa. Issa is the face of Monique Péan’s new jew­ellery line, with whom Ku­mar was also able to have a one-on-one with. Read more about Péan’s deep-rooted love for jew­ellery and how she con­tin­ues to be mind­ful of the en­vi­ron­ment at the same time.

A large con­trib­u­tor to our is­sue’s theme is our cover girl, Aliya-jas­mine So­vani. As­so­ciate Editor, Harpreet Brar, had the op­por­tu­nity to sit down with the gor­geous tele­vi­sion per­son­al­ity right be­fore her cover shoot with SHE. We learn about her ex­pe­ri­ences as a host with an eth­nic back­ground, along with how she got to where she is to­day. Flip over to p. 30 where you’ll also find photos from her ex­clu­sive shoot.

Celebrate Di­wali with the most pop­u­lar out­fits on trend this sea­son–for both women (p.12) and men (p. 58). We also go in-depth about the vi­brant and colour­ful hol­i­day and learn about tra­di­tions all over the world in dif­fer­ent coun­tries (p. 19).

While this time of year brings an abun­dance of hol­i­day spirit from dif­fer­ent parts of the world, we mustn’t for­get about the on-go­ing is­sues in Is­rael. SHE Cares has launched a fundrais­ing cam­paign with Is­lamic Re­lief Canada in an ef­fort to raise do­na­tions to aid Pales­tini­ans who have suf­fered from the re­cent events. Head over to p. 71 to learn more about how you can help vic­tims, as well as shemagazine.ca for more in­for­ma­tion.

The fall­ing tem­per­a­ture, crisp wind, and per­haps some snow makes most peo­ple be­gin to slip into the win­ter blues. De­spite the weather, it’s still au­tumn, so make sure to stay ac­tive and en­joy time out of the house be­fore win­ter re­ally sets in. SHE online is here to cheer you up this time of year!
