CANADIAN CONTENT: ELLE AUGUST 2014

DEAR ELLE (A LOVE LETTER)

“YOU’RE A WORLD COUNTRY, YET YOU HAVE PRESERVED YOUR OWN IDENTITY. I HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY SEDUCED BY THE OPENESS, FRIENDLINESS AND HAPPINESS OF PEOPLE HERE.THAT’S NOT HAPPENING IN THE REST OF THE WORLD SO MUCH.”

LIDEWIJ EDELKOORT, PARIS-BASED TREND FORECASTER, IN A CONVERSATION WITH NOREEN FLANAGAN, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF ELLE CANADA. NICE WORDS, THANK YOU!

THE CONCEPT, THE PICTURES, THE WORDS, THE LAYOUTS, OVERWHELMING…I AM USUALLY MUTE BUT THIS ISSUE MAKES ME WANT TO TALK! THIS ISSUE WAS SO CANADIAN IT THRILLED ME AND MADE ME WONDER, ONCE AGAIN, IF WE, PERHAPS, COULD MAINTAIN A YEAR ROUND PUBLICATION LIKE THIS…ALL CANADA, ALL THE TIME…HMM…
ENJOY!
