Vanichi’s November 2015 issue cover theme is Confidence and is dedicated the power of self-assurance and the appreciation one’s innate abilities. For this focus, we present two covers.

The first cover image is part of a creative concept from photographer Fidel Gonzalez. The full feature entitled, “Power of 3″ is coming soon to Vanichi. The second cover is by Federico Alba and features the fortifying aspects of great “Friendship.” Keep scrolling down for the team credits that brought these concepts to life.

A NOTE FROM OUR EDITOR

At times, it seems our world is overrun with mass production, cookie cutter moments and homogenized lifestyles. Those who stand out do so with a sense of self that is alluring and intoxicating. We call them icons. We applaud them as mavericks. We lionize them as leaders. Regardless of how we define them, we know these people and their confidence because they simply dared to be themselves and carve their own paths. It shouldn’t require courage and self-assurance to take a risk on oneself. Yet, somehow, it does.
The Confidence Issue of Vanichi celebrates the spirit of self. This isn’t to be confused with arrogance, boasting or bragging. Instead, it’s the moment of realizing one’s innate abilities and rising to meet your own potential. Confidence isn’t held captive by convention. It doesn’t kowtow to bigotry or small-mindedness. And since like attracts like, confidence also finds itself surrounded by similar strength.
I hope you enjoy seeing these stories reveal themselves on vanichi.com over the next few weeks.
Keep rising!
Joy Donnell
