London-based KITTY FINSTAD guides us through the city’s most coveted new address in “Marvelous Mount Street” (page 16). In between writing and editing, this Canadian expat does her best to support her adopted city’s economy by eating and drinking her way around London’s buzzing bar and restaurant scene.

Writer and editor KAREN VON HAHN is a trend hunter with international taste who currently works as The Toronto Star’s “Style Czar” columnist and as editor-in-chief of KingWest. In “Deco Discoveries” (page 11) she heads to Shanghai, China, where the Art Deco landscape still reigns supreme.

Award-winning food and travel writer CHRIS JOHNS journeys to Barbados in “Sunset Sip” (page 46) to learn about the island’s colorful history, people and cocktail of choice. The Toronto-based writer’s current project has him penning stories of 140 characters or less. (Follow him on Twitter @chrisandvinegar.)

Photographer ANDREW ROWAT captures the diversity of China throughout this issue of Fairmont, from timeless luxury in Shanghai (cover and page 11) to wellness in the capital city (“Balance in Beijing,” page 30). Find his work in publications such as The New Yorker and Condé Nast Traveler.

TIMOTHY TAYLOR is an award-winning novelist and a contributing editor at more than a dozen publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Food & Wine, National Post and The Walrus. He learns the art of falconry in “Feathered Friends” (page 54). His most recent novel is the thriller The Blue Light Project.

Montreal journalist EMILIE VILLENEUVE reports on just about everything, from fashion trends to social issues. She’s adding astronomy to the list with “Seeing Stars” (page 40), which has her heading to Charlevoix, Quebec, for a crash course in stargazing. Up next: a book about Quebec’s favorite recipes.
