JAN 2021 | EDITORS NOTE- 2020 was the year that changed all of us in some way or the other. While some aced their culinary skills, others dedicated their time and focus to get fitter and better. Most of them picked up a new skill and topped the productivity charts, while a good lot of them put their feet up and relaxed after years and months and days of working their socks off. Some also put their feet up on the wall and saw the world go upside down, quite literally, as they perfected their yoga poses, while those who were battling tough times learned how to take one day at a time and live it the best way that they could.
2020 gave us that unsaid time to find and reconnect with ourselves and realize all that is to be grateful for. For us, we realized the importance of traveling when we set out for our first vacation post-lockdown to the Soneva Fushi in Maldives. The said cognizance conceived the idea of ‘TPM – Travel Peregrination Magazine.’ Our inaugural issue of January 2021 brings our idea to reality via elaborate travel stories, travel style pages, and editorials shot at scenic locations.
Our workcation to Soneva Fushi had a special purpose. We were excited, nervous, and anxious, not only because it was our first travel stint post-lockdown but also because we were shooting our first cover shoot after the lockdown. But our nervousness was put to rest by our cover star, Bollywood A-lister, and beauty entrepreneur Katrina Kaif, who made the shoot a cakewalk and a lively one. The one to make a mark right from the word ‘Go,’ Katrina is just the powerhouse needed to begin the year with a bang.
The issue features an assorted, power-packed bunch of bigwigs from industries like hospitality, fashion, filmmaking, photography, interior design, and luxury. Mohammed Al Turki, Sonu Shivdasani, Huma Sulaiman, Gabriel Georgiou, Ayush Choudhary, Liliana Matthäus, and Yasmeen Kateb are the seven eminent personas to be featured. We next have articles talking about the birth of vaccines and its course in the future to a tech-backed read about digital clothing. Closer home, we give you a sneak-peek into Falguni Shane Peacock’s recently launched pret wear store, where movers-and-shakers from the fashion turf were shot by lensman Abheet Gidwani. Up next are two fashion editorials shot in the beautiful island of Maldives. Our love affair with the island extends to a travelogue where we recount the memories from our special sojourn. To round up, we have Tracy-Lee Rosslind, who sported our pret wear in the picturesque locations of South Africa.
With a brand-new year unfolding, we wish to travel more and bring back more stories for you. We also wish to bring you the best on the fashion front, just like we have until now. Here’s to a year of putting the best foot forward. Cheers!
