Our Fashion issue is not about what’s ‘trending’. It’s not about the hottest looks on the runway. It’s not about the must haves of the season and because of that, it will not be short-lived. Our Fashion issue is about the impact fashion has on our society and culture, the importance of sustainability, the questions we ask ourselves about genderless style and where fashion is headed. To help us put things in perspective, we interacted with influential individuals from the Fashion Industry.

In our lead story, Mickey Boardman, Editorial Director, Paper Magazine, shares his journey from answering telephone calls to being one of the most important figures in the fashion world. He shares his thoughts on how technology is driving fashion and at the same time causing hindrance. How social media has affected fashion and how one should always use their skills to give back. Listed sees three strong and thinking voices, Bandana Tewari, Editor-at-Large, Vogue, Rajesh Pratap Singh, a celebrated fashion designer, and curator Mayank Mansingh Kaul—each hailing from a different branch yet connected to the same tree, they share their views and concerns about the fashion industry. And as always, we highlight the promising names in the fashion world that are on the road to greater things.

Moving on, we catch up with Rahul Bose after a really long time as he gears up for the release of his directorial venture, Poorna. We discuss what took him 13 years to get on the director’s seat, and all that happened in-between. For the first time, we will see Suraj Sharma in an Indian production; he shares his experiences and the difference between the two worlds of Holly and Bollywood. Debut Director Shubhashish Bhutiani lets us in on his very poignant and intriguing film, Hotel Salvation, the story of a father who asks his son to take him to Benaras to attain Moksha.

And lastly, no fashion issue can be left incomplete without a visual fashion narrative. We celebrate the youth with Gucci through a very edgy and hip photo-shoot by Kapil Das. And the incredible Bharat Sikka captures a story that highlights every nuance, rounding off our pages with more perfection.
