This is the 4th issue of Fashion Finds. I hope youll agree that this is a really special month!
We are thrilled to feature our first star of stage, screen and TV -- Roy Dupuis -- currently the male lead of the USA series La Femme Nikita. It was a delight to have the opportunity to talk with him. The conversation lasted more than an hour, and were printing every word. Roy is a great conversationalist, storyteller, and a master of the art of acting. Dont miss a moment of it. His last few minutes are marvelous, and truly revealing of the intellectual passion of this more-than-good-looking actor.
Roy, from northern Quebec, isnt the only Canadian talent we celebrate. Crystal Siemens is one of Canadas top fashion designers, and we have an exclusive look at her summer line. I know youll enjoy her unique vision.
This months issue has a powerful pictorial of the great poet/singer/songwriter Bob Dylan, with rare archive photos. When you start to read the lyrics, youll see sentiment hasnt changed much in the last 30 years. The feeling of emotional distress and disenfranchisement during ones youth is timeless. And Bob Dylan as style icon is as important today as it was when he first stepped onto a Greenwich Village stage in the early Sixties.
Then, get ready for some real fun! Our marvelous Top 5 Picks at the Mall columnist Kathy Martinez takes us on a Shopping Spree in New Yorks Lower East Side. Kathys sister Maureen, another natural style-setter, joins Kathy for the day. The sisters Martinez will introduce you to some of the most wonderful, fresh, hip, and cool stores in town, and youll see the work of great young designers available nowhere else.
Were featuring the final part of our makeup flagship stores Consumer Report; the ever popular Top 5 Picks from your local mall monthly column, and our Buying Beauty column, which debuted last month and was an instant totally smash hit.
Have fun exploring the issue!
Here in Manhattan, the weather is finally warm, and summer unofficially arrives just after Memorial Day. Time to settle into a mellow mood and enjoy being outdoors, relaxing, taking vacations. Have you bought some fun and fabulous things to wear wherever you plan to be, and whatever you plan to do? Have you picked your summer reading? Youll get some great ideas in Books You MUST Read! I hope that the pages of Fashion Finds have given you inspiration and information.
Fathers Day is June 20th, so dont forget to remember dear old Dad. It might be fun to do something special with your dad on Fathers Day. My dad taught me how to ride a bicycle -- I remember the day so clearly; so filled with love and triumph. How about a bike ride together? My dad also taught me how to drive. Once we got over the initial tearful lesson where I kept riding the brake pedal to my dads increasing impatience, things got better. He even eventually reached the point where he didnt white-knuckle the dashboard anymore. So what about a nice road trip? Remember, Dad was there to cuddle you, comfort you, and also teach you how to toughen up and stand on your own.
Heres to all the dads out there!
Have a wonderful sunny month, and keep in touch .
