From Scott Lipps to Ben Watts to Paul Boche and Sibyl Buck, 2013 for The Cultural Omnivore was a year of bigger than life characters that reminded us why we love fashion. While the world was introduced to newcomers James Gatenby, Alex Michels and Maggie Maurer, feature interviews with the filmmakers of Girl Model and Versailles ’73: An American Runway Revolution pushed boundaries and challenged viewers to reflect and consider a more serious side of the fashion industry. Additionally, Rachel Blais and Edythe Hughes both have used their platform to advocate for model’s rights and be of service to their community respectively. For the more health conscious reader, Roger Frampton, Catherine McCord and Dana James provided a cornucopia of information.

I would like to thank everyone for their continued support and promise to deliver plenty more in 2014.
