This year, I decided to have a little fun with our Butterfly Issue. Since our Butterfly Issue is all about change, transformation, and growth; I figured there was no better time than the present to change it up. After pondering over it for a bit, I thought, wouldn't it be cool if we did a livestream event?! What started out as a few interviews over a weekend, turned into a week-long 'live' issue featuring Love U Magazine contributors and several guest speakers.
The event kept getting bigger as excitement began to build. We started to promote the event on our social media channels and through Facebook ads. Best yet, people were actually signing up! I couldn't have planned it better if I had tried. And then, it all fell apart.
For many, Fall represents the changing of the guard, but this year, the season ushered in more than just cute cardigans and boots. A page was turned towards peace and fashion equality at the World Fashion Parade, held at Gotham Hall in New York City on September 25, 2016.
The World Fashion Parade is a humanitarian event that brings designers, models, industry leaders and dignitaries together to promote peace and harmony around the world, all while raising money and awareness for a charitable cause. #FashionForPeace was the theme of this year's World Fashion Parade, which brought awareness to the devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake that occurred in Nepal in April 2015. A much-needed call for tourism was emphasized by highlighting the art and culture that vibrates throughout Nepal.
