It is not often that one gets to witness a personal vision truly come to life. But lucky for me, this has become a reality for fave Magazine.


fave started as a simple idea, living somewhere in the creative hemi- sphere of my brain for years. The original thought was to create a magazine-style beauty report, one that would showcase my com- bined abilities in photography and graphic arts, alongside my years of experience in the beauty industry.


Early this spring, I sat down with a group of several creative talents and shared my vision. During this session I suddenly discovered that this personal project would serve a bigger purpose, beyond just my own. Immediately after unveiling the fave concept, there was an over- whelming response of genuine support from these artists, who were raring to selflessly donate their time and talent to help bring fave to life. As I looked around the room I came to the realization that many of these artists would also benefit from a creative platform to show- case their craft and gain exposure. The fave idea was transforming (right before my eyes) into a creative hub. A place where local artists and talent could collaborate and network.


For this inaugural issue of fave, there was one clear choice for a theme. The “green” theme holds two important meanings. The first refers to its’ infancy, and freshness. It is brand new, and has only just be- gun. The second meaning reflects an environmen- tal, eco-friendly conscience – a characteristic of fave that will last long after the first issue. fave is a paperless project, and beyond the production itself I wanted to acknowledge this level of conscious- ness because it is a theme that all contributors of fave feel strongly about.


As Creative Director of this venture, I am honoured to lead this team of contributors and artists who have collectively helped shape and form fave. I am also particularly proud to lend a hand in opening yet another door for the Capital’s impressive local talent, and rapidly emerging force in the global fashion and beauty industry.


On behalf of everyone on the fave team, I thank you for your support. Enjoy.
