Dear Reader,

The JUNE 2020 issue of the online magazine is to feature an updated conversation with influential Californian photographer and model scout, Jim Jordan – the LA dynamo who developed the careers of supermodels Bella and Gigi Hadid, and also discovered VOGUE cover girl/Victoria’s Secret angel, Taylor Hill. We also take a look back at a few events I’ve personally organised over the years including the gala launch of the ‘King’s Chelsea’ luxury residential development in London SW10 by Northacre plc, which featured a Champagne Krug reception, a seated dinner for 500, a private performance by ballerina Darcey Bussell, plus an elegant fashion show by top British designer Amanda Wakeley. Also in the upcoming content: Street-art inspiration behind the colourful 47th floor apartment I interior designed in San Francisco for a contemporary-art-collecting, jet-setting tycoon (who featured very high up on last weekend’s Sunday Times Rich List 2020). More: Healthy and delicious cuisine from two of my all-time favourite chefs, Gaston Acurio (of SF’s ‘La Mar’) and Wolfgang Puck (of ‘SPAGO’ in LA and ‘CUT’ at The Dorchester Collection’s deco-themed hotel 45 Park Lane in Mayfair, London), plus the outdoor Italian kitchen at special event venue Deer Park Country House in Devon, England. Enjoy!

Wishing you continued good health and happiness,

Nicky Summer
