Words cannot describe my excitement in finally getting to reveal the up-and-coming Rue Magazine. The French word for street, Rue will be your pathway to stylish living, featuring interiors and entertaining content with a strong fashion and lifestyle sensibility. The premiere issue will debut on September 16 and will include spreads featuring acclaimed interiors experts, fashion designers, and of course, style bloggers, from around the world.
I am so humbled and appreciative that Crystal Gentilello, the founder and editor in chief of Rue, asked me to join the team as co-founder and managing editor. Over the past month, I've spent many hours and insanely long email chains discussing the ins and outs of the new magazine with executive editor and co-founder Anne Sage, market editor Caitlin Flemming, and of course, Crystal. You might remember me tweeting about a certain photo shoot last weekend. Making sense now? : )
Well, let me tell you, the bar has been set high. In fact, Anne and Crystal flew to New York last night to begin work on three shoots over the course of this week. They'll be working with photographers who have shot for Domino, Traditional Home, and the New York Times.
Be sure to follow them around Manhattan as they Tweet about their stylish adventures!
