It’s our anniversary! My goodness where has the time gone? The clock may have gone flying out the window, but to us it really does just seem like yesterday that we began this journey of developing and presenting a magazine that would empower, motivate, be informative and really project the true beauty of black women around the globe. We have had an amazing time this past year and we feel so honored to have all of your support.
This issue we wanted our readers to get to know us, the editors a little better. You will learn some of our favorite moments from the past year as well as what’s it like running 1966. What do you think of this month’s cover shot by photographer, Anthony McDermott? Probably have already guessed, but yup that’s us, co-editors Alicia and Arianne getting our pose on for the camera.
So then, what do we have in store for year number two? Well, the next chapter begins with our April 2014 issue as we cover what’s trending in hair as well as beauty NOW, month 4 of our Get Fit For Summer Countdown and El Paseo Fashion Week ( which featured Project Runway alums Uli, Viktor, Helen, Irina, Ari and Michael Costello- yes the man behind Beyonce’s stunning Grammy dress!).
Our hair contributor DeAndra Giselle gives up the deets on What Being Natural Really Means and our resident fashion psychologist, Dawnn Karen explains Who Determines Seasonal Trends. Those highlights are only the tip of the iceberg; therefore, be sure to get your copy of the April edition of 1966 Magazine!
