From The Editor’s Desk:
A Month of Madness

This month’s issue is our best ever! We really worked hard to put this one together. I have to give a special thanks to Paul, our photographer, for the great aerial shots he took in the leisure section. I heard he puked from the hot air balloon while shooting them from. I hope nobody was below when that happened. We can't really afford a lawsuit over here. We also cover some exciting fashion developments at NYC Fashion the and the preview of the upcoming Magic Show in Las Vegas. We really hope you enjoy.
