Editor-in-Chief, Amy McCabe Introduces the March Creativity issue
Throughout the most challenging year of our lifetime, our goal at Modeliste has been to continue to bring our readers uplifting, inspiring, and empowering content focused on building a hopeful vision for the future beyond. One of the most challenging aspects of making the magazine during this time of the Covid-19 global pandemic has been the production of our international destination Cover shoots, our Mode Around The Globe Social Media Influencer Getaways and our travel editorial features. As the world begins to cautiously reopen with a commitment to a safe form of tourism, we were delighted to be able to travel once again to Garza Blanca, Cancun. Once again we experienced that magical moment when we all come together to create stunning imagery complete with glistening ocean vistas as a breathtaking backdrop. As all of our crew and attendees were required to have a negative Covid-19 test prior to our departure, we also ensured compliance with new regulations to have a negative Covid-19 test presented in order to return to the U.S. Additionally, we practiced all health and safety measures and social distancing precautions during our stay and travels, respecting our host country and resort restrictions.
I have personally been blown away by the creative skills of the women gracing this month’s edition and how they have each reinvented themselves differently during this time.
Creativity and change takes courage.
Our Cover Star, Olivia Ponton, has served as encouragement to us all to let go, embrace change, seek new ways to be creative and truly express ourselves. This issue is testament to the power of creativity, personal growth and self-expression as we have learned how our social culture moves conversations forward and can offer respite, wisdom and escapism in a storm. It’s important during these trying times to seek inspiration and look inward to find ways to cherish it, celebrate it, and play a positive part in making it.
