Publisher's Letter | September/October 2020




Hey there, Alexandria! We have finally arrived! This is Issue Ten and it marks the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of VIP Alexandria Magazine!

Not only is VIP celebrating its first birthday, but we were also recently nominated as a Rising Star Finalist for The Chamber ALX 2020 Best in Business Awards! We are so thrilled and humbled to have been nominated alongside so many inspiring local businesses. Wishing everyone the very best of luck!

So now that all of our big announcements are out of the way, let's get on with the show!

Welcome to the Fashion Issue, Alexandria! Once again, photographer Jonathan Thorpe nailed our cover! And don't our models look absolutely stunning? We had such a great time this month, working with fashion influencers, local boutiques, jewelry designers and hair and makeup professionals to bring our fashion feature to life! If you want to check it out, you don't have to look for! Just open the book to the center spread to get started!

Though fashion plays such a huge role in our lives during this time of the year, let's not forget about the other big 'F' word... FOOTBALL! We are so excited to be the official media sponsor of The Chick N' Smoot Show, broadcasting LIVE from Augie's during every Washington Football Team game this season! VIP's Jeanette Wages had a chance to sit down with the guys for an exclusive interview, and you can read all about it on page 57.

Well, I won't keep you. There is plenty to read in the pages ahead. Thank you again, Alexandria, for welcoming us with open arms! If you thought we had fun during year one... you just wait! You haven't seen anything yet!
