This issue welcomes The Chic Escape with a whole accolade of content to have you raring to go this season, from protective skincare to fashion staples and staycations. Covid-19 has altered our travel plans, but it hasn’t stopped our wanderlust thirst. It is with this very narrative that I announce my departure as I move forward into new adventures, experiences and creative endeavours. Who even knew that adulting could (and would!) be this hard?
Interviewing the likes of Charlotte Tilbury, Stella McCartney, Sandra Choi, René Caovilla, Furne Amato and Laudomia Pucci, to name but a few, is certainly no mean feat and a testament to Ohlala! World exclusives such as the launch of the RollsRoyce Cullinan and creative directions for photoshoots with Ferrari and Maserati will forever be ingrained as memorable moments. Luxury dining experiences and staycations have certainly moulded my taste for the finer things in life. I’ve swaddled Ohlala in all of her fashionista qualities and watched her grow. So, in the last moments that I have on this platform, all I want to say is, “Thank you, this is not a goodbye, rather an au revoir!’”
