LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER
When many of us hear the word “style,” we immediately—and correctly—think of the physical characteristics and mannerisms that uniquely define a person. Whether we’re talking about Audrey Hepburn’s style of fashion, Jack Benny’s style of comedy, or Ernest Hemingway’s style of writing, what we’re really doing is calling to the fore the specific elements of individuality expressed by each of these 20th century cultural icons.
In this issue of PS Magazine, we celebrate the dignifying and empowering value of everyone’s personal style, and not a moment too soon, in my opinion! Living in a world today where we have digital profiles of ourselves on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, etc., existing in far greater number than our old-fashion, single “in-person” self, it’s more important than ever that we embrace what makes us unique, that which reveals to our offline world a bit of who we really are on the inside.
The following pages are full of articles that celebrate this message of personal expression through our outward-facing, physical style. Some of us will bask in the creativity and glamour of the women presented in Ari Seth Cohen’s Advanced Style, while others will chuckle and remember the last time they donned a festive Hawaiian shirt and ordered a drink with one of those little umbrellas in it. And going beyond clothes and hairstyles, we had some fun attending a feline fashion show in New York City that will likely redefine your vision of what a “cat walk” in the
Big Apple might look like!
Wherever you are and in whatever form of attire you choose today, in the spirit of celebrating you, may this issue of PS Magazine encourage you to proudly display your style! Sincerely, John Polatz Publisher and CEO
