It may be October, but it’s still hot! Well, at least the pages of 25A are! October is our Fall Fashion Issue and I couldn’t be prouder of the way the book reads and looks. What a perfect way to conquer New York City than to produce the most beautiful magazine we’ve ever put together! On our cover is the glamorous, gorgeous, talented and hard working, Dita von Teese. We are thrilled and over-the-moon to feature the “Queen of Burlesque.” We spoke to her in Australia, where she was walking the runway for the brand, Wheels and Babydoll. She collaborates with Melanie Greensmith, designer and founder of the brand, to produce beautiful clothing for the everyday woman. In this issue, we feature an exclusive fashion shoot at the NOMO SOHO Hotel on Crosby Street in Manhattan (thank you to them for letting us use their space), a roundup of New York Fasion Week looks, an interview with Lubov Azria, creative director of BCBG, and much more! We think you’ll love all the fashion we showcase and hope that you use us as your guide to great fall looks. As always, we feature beloved local author, Monica Randall who writes about Rosemary Farms and the Haunted Druid Ruins on the Gold Coast. What a perfectly scary story for Halloween! In addition, we have the best in restaurants and travel destinations profiled. We are blessed to have excellent writers and loyal readers. Wishing you a wonderful October.
