Editor’s

LETTER

A

It is a honor for me to present to you our Holiday 2018 issue. This is one of the largest projects I have worked on for Simply Audree Kate, and it feels like the only proper way to celebrate 2018. This past year taught me resilience, patience, happiness and the power of listening to my inner voice. Over these 12 short months, I have had the opportunity to travel to incredible places, my favorites including Hong Kong and Italy, I spent a majority of my work week styling photoshoots, and I even launched my career e-book, “Fashion Fundamentals: Internships, Networking and Social Media” in late March. It was a year of growth, challenges, and celebrated milestones. I am incredibly thankful for my friends, family and especially my team who have helped me grow my businesses and create beautiful and fun content every single day. Before you is a labor of AUDREE love, a collaboration of creativity and something I KATE am so proud of. I have wanted to create this magazine for over a year, and it’s been a long 12-month waiting game! I hope you enjoy our Holiday issue, and from the Simply Audree Kate team to you, have the happiest holiday season!
