LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
By Robere Lett | Publisher | Style Editor
As we kiss summer goodbye we began the anticipation of fall, the change in season for the midwesterner is all too apparent but most time unwelcome, after all who wants to give up their warm weather pursuits. Soon the landscape of Michigan will become all too noticeable as we see the leaves begin to turn and the dynamic color explosion occurs. It is my belief that Michigan is one of the most beautiful and versatile states in the contiguous USA. If you have the chance to travel our state you will see such an expanse of variety in our scenery - from lakes and rivers to sand and dunes - mountainous hilly terrain to miles and miles of farmland. But fall is especially stunning, so if you are thinking about sightseeing this fall be sure to check out the colorful landscapes with a drive along Michigan’s extraordinary shorelines, vistas, valley’s and countrysides… you won’t be disappointed!
Of course Fall is the season of Fashion, and fashion weeks are set to begin! (See the schedules below)

The shape of things to come is the changing dynamic of body shapes taking over the catwalks more and more each season, diversity in was all to prevalent this season and prominently on display as more fashion houses realizes that the average women is not a 0, 2 or 4 … will it last only time will tell. Look for our updates and fashion trend reports throughout the season!
