ED­I­TOR’S NOTE

Red Magazine - - EDITOR’S NOTE | CONTENTS -

We put Jon Jon Rufino and his beau­ti­ful twins, Lilith and Lu­cian, on the cover of our De­cem­ber is­sue be­cause to us, fam­ily is the core of the sea­son. It’s true that the hol­i­days can be tir­ing, and in this coun­try, gift giv­ing can some­times feel more like a chore, but the gath­er­ings we at­tend dur­ing this month are the ones we cher­ish most.

I’ve been work­ing on this mag­a­zine since its con­cep­tion, and pro­duc­ing RED has been one of the most ful­fill­ing things I’ve done. The goal from the start was to present an in­tel­li­gent mag­a­zine for peo­ple with dis­cern­ing taste and to show them ideas on how they may want to spend their time and money, whether on art, fash­ion, or travel.

But I think it’s time to move on, fo­cus on my blog www.ri­arec­om­mends.com, and pur­sue other in­ter­ests. So with a heavy but grate­ful heart, I would like to wish all the read­ers of In­quirer RED adieu and a won­der­ful 2018.

The truth is, what I will miss the most about pro­duc­ing this mag­a­zine are the peo­ple I have been work­ing with and the ones I’ve met through this job. One in par­tic­u­lar is our art di­rec­tor Nimu Mual­lam. From be­ing sim­ply a col­league, she has be­come a friend and some­one I choose to be part of my fam­ily. With Christ­mas as a cel­e­bra­tion of fam­ily, both the ones we were given and the ones we’ve cho­sen, may we al­ways re­mem­ber how for­tu­nate we are to have them in our lives.

Happy hol­i­days!
