Winter Affair | Promo Magazine NYC


On the last month of 2016, I hit one of the biggest goals of mine: a New York magazine publication. With the help of a few talents, this was the perfect way to end my first full year after graduating from college!

Back in November, Promo Magazine NYC was accepting magazine submissions for their 38th issue. The theme was called white winter, so I came up with the editorial name, 'Winter Affair'. I felt that it was just the right fit with all the ideas I had in mind! I pulled wardrobe from some of my favourite clothing stores, and me and my mom's closet (believe it, or not)! I included pieces that were trending, but also unique. 

This project was like a dream. I worked with natural lighting in my home studio with Miel Enage, who did an amazing job on makeup, Taylor Hui, Founder of Forever BeaYOUtiful, and model (aka Girl Boss), and my incredible boyfriend, Brian, who assisted. 

Having my first editorial published in a magazine was a goal that I had sitting on my vision board for the past year. It wasn't for the fame or popularity, but simply to prove that anyone can achieve what they set their mind and heart to. Thank you Promo Magazine for publishing my work in the January 2017 issue, and my A-team for trusting my vision, and believing in me. I can't wait to see what this New Year will bring.
