A fresh start

Red Magazine - - Editor’s Letter -

Oh, to be young again. What I love most about the new year is that we are forced to eval­u­ate our lives, hopefully learn from our ex­pe­ri­ences, and want to live bet­ter.

If there is any­thing that de­fines the young, it is their fear­less pur­suit to go for what they are most passionate about. Sadly, as we grow older we some­how find our­selves do­ing what we think we are sup­posed to do and for­get to lis­ten to our in­ner voice.

This is­sue, we are thrilled to have Jenny Rock­ett on the cover. Not only an es­tab­lished model, she is also a sea­soned trav­eler, ven­tur­ing the world to pur­sue her pas­sions for pub­lic pol­icy, me­dia, and life’s lit­tle sur­prises.

You will also get an eye­ful of the vi­brant pho­tos of Francesca Bala­guer-Mer­cado, an­other young woman who is do­ing what she loves best, mak­ing peo­ple come alive and telling a story with a sin­gle shot. We also asked some of Manila’s most in­flu­en­tial per­son­al­i­ties to share their lust list for 2013, a mix of fash­ion, beauty, tech­nol­ogy, and art ac­qui­si­tions.

For those with a pas­sion for travel like our cover girl, we hope you en­joy Andy Martel’s Ice­land ad­ven­ture in this is­sue’s ex­ploRED. Fash­ion de­signer and en­tre­pre­neur Josie Na­tori, mean­while, is our sub­ject in em­pow­eRED: find out what makes her cre­ate the most del­i­cate and beau­ti­ful caf­tans, which I per­son­ally think ev­ery woman should have at least one in her wardrobe. And of course, since it’s the the new year, we had to ask our good friends what they’re sav­ing up for.

Happy 2013!
