Many of you might ask why I named this issue Evolution?
We have all come through almost three years of continuous change. My feeling is we have all come full circle in some kind of way in our evolutionary process. Some of us have lost, some gained all been affected both spiritually and/or emotionally in an exponential way.
When I think of everything that this world has been going through and has survived I think of the world “Evolution.”
I am beyond moved and honored that the Formentos created another epic front and back cover for me and a journey of great story telling through their amazing Nostalgia series at the Dive motel and other locations throughout the country.
I’m truly honored to feature two rising stars from Central Saint Martins both of these young female designers are on the fast track to stardom and I’m delighted to support them in any way I can.
Everyone in this issue has been carefully selected their stories are woven with great care and love for their craft. I’m also very excited about the direction I’ve taken Faddy USA. It’s been a long road and well worth the sleepless nights and long hours curating and crafting something worth waiting for and a visual delight for the FADDY Magazine USA audience. I say FADDY USA because that is exactly who we are and not anyone or anything else.
I’m proud of the work that we all have done as a collaborative global family and I look forward to what’s coming next. Stay tuned for my upcoming Fall and Holiday issues they will be something to treasure and marvel at.
Sending everyone big love always.
