[divider]A NOTE FROM OUR EDITOR[/divider]

The ability to live a creative life is a luxury. Need proof? Look at how many places in this world repress and oppress artistic expression. There are countries on our planet that jail poets, exile musicians, execute artists simply for expressing the voice of their people. It seems like a scene from a dystopian movie but instead it the result of dictatorships and totalitarian regimes. So, the pleasure of living a creative life on a global level deserves celebration.

Vanichi‘s CREATIVE JET SET issue highlights the lives of creatives who live, work and play as global citizens. These individuals seek to inspire and be inspired. They become one with the places they visit since, more than things, they value experience above all else. They appreciate beauty and find it almost everywhere: in chaos and order, in perfection and imbalance.

Creative jetsetters rock a sense of style that fits into every metropolis around the globe. This style fits because it is born from their unique expression of life. Their style is them and they are their sense of style, hence, it cannot be constrained or pigeonholed by geography.

As Dan Eldon famously stated,”The journey is the destination.” Cheers to the explorers.

Keep rising,

Joy Donnell
