With RED, I have always felt that our “September issue” actually happens in October. I say this because it’s when we partner with the Red Cross Charity Gala and feature their designer of the year. This year’s edition is extra special to me because we are collaborating with one of my favorite designers, Joey Samson. Creative, inspiring, yet low-key, Joey’s talent and genius make me proud to be part of this industry.
I’ve been bugging supermodel Paolo Roldan to do a shoot with us, and luckily, we were able to schedule one with him while he was here in the country. Having him and Joey’s muse Jo Ann Bitagcol in a shoot together will remain one of my favorite cover moments.
When I was in New York for Fashion Week, I got to chat with artist and feminist Nikki Luna on why feminism is misunderstood and why we should all be feminists. Here in Manila, we also got to visit and shoot the beautiful home of an art collector and creative director.
I’m honestly happy with how this issue came out. Hope you all enjoy it, too!
