and there you have it


Preview (Philippines) - - Editor’s Note -

We couldn’t let the year draw to a close with­out our Best Dressed is­sue, nor­mally pub­lished in July, which we had sus­pended to give way to our 20th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tion. We’ve al­ways known that Best Dressed was our most pop­u­lar is­sue, but we were still pleas­antly sur­prised at the fer­vor with which read­ers have asked not just me but all our ed­i­tors, on so­cial me­dia and in per­son, when we would present the year’s top 10. We thought it would be good to end our 20th an­niver­sary and to start the new year (as this is a dou­ble is­sue) with this beloved fea­ture.

As al­ways, our mis­sion when­ever we do Best Dressed is to find a di­verse ex­pres­sion of style. As in our pre­vi­ous fea­tures, the 10 women pro­filed to­day tra­verse a wide range on the style spec­trum to prove to you that be­ing well-dressed isn’t uni­form and, more im­por­tantly, isn’t clichéd. The women pro­filed in this month’s is­sue—Monika, Eloise, Mavis, Melissa, Chi, Na­dine, Malou, Lo­ralee, Chiyo and Yessa—have such di­verse philoso­phies about fash­ion, it shows you that no mat­ter what age, what gen­der, how well-off or how trend-savvy (or not) you are, whether you like de­signer or high street, if you em­brace glam­our or pre­fer uli­tity, if you shun the spot­light or are a bona fide star, there are a mul­ti­tude of ways to en­gage in fash­ion.

Not only do we cel­e­brate fash­ion stars in this is­sue, we also present our an­nual ros­ter of tal­ents to watch for in the cre­ative in­dus­tries: Lady Scott Jones, Sarah Geneblazo, CRWN, Xur­pas, Den­ver Bal­baboco, Fold­yard & Co., Te Amo Floris­te­ria, Abbey Sy, Lee Watson and Gino San­tos. Edited by Jae de Veyra Pick­rell, 2015’s Cre­ative It List is a who’s who of young tal­ent—the prover­bial breath of fresh air—who are shak­ing up their re­spec­tive fields.
