editor’s letter

April seems like a lifetime ago, but it was the month that charted the year ahead. It was a time of uncertainty, when an unknown virus made us ill-equipped to step outside our homes. But the world moved on, powered by a life-affirming galaxy of rock stars who were unafraid to lead us through a crisis. Back then, their resilience, dedication and kindness inspired our Vogue Warriors series, which celebrated women fighting COVID-19 on the front lines as well as behind the scenes. And though the campaign ended in May, these women continued to inspire us. So when we began planning our annual Vogue Women Of The Year (WOTY) awards, a show that brings together achievers for a night of glamour and excellence, it was no surprise that we wanted this…

educationist extraordinaire

What prompted you to forgo the opportunity to take over the reins at Mukta Arts in favour of spearheading Whistling Woods International (WWI)? I agree that education is a very different career to be in, but I have been extremely fortunate to be able to leverage my educational background and knowledge about the creative industry through Whistling Woods International (WWI).

So, when it came to designing the curriculum for a film school, I was able to bring my knowledge of the real world and form a great balance between academics and the industry.
