The Celebration Issue 2013 Behind the Magazine
Every day of our lives we can choose to look at the glass half empty or half full. Here at Profiles98 Magazine we continue to look at the joys of life more than its’ challenges. Last year we began a journey littered with nation wide celebrations as the Bahamas marched towards its’ fortieth year of Independence. This issue is a part of not only a continued celebration of our growth as a country but the growth of Profiles98 Magazine, through the launch of our online shop. As we move towards offering an all inclusive experience for our readers, Profiles 98 Shop platform allows our viewers the opportunity to shop for authentic, one of a kind designer fashions from around the world and an eclectic array of original art from all corners of the Caribbean. It is our endeavor that this feature coupled with the addition of our Where To Shop page, which features brands, we love from top designers and boutiques around the world will elevate, Profiles 98 to the premier art and fashion information and product outlet in the Caribbean.
Our cover model for this is issue, is a prime example of the level of diversity and success that we hope to promote amongst our readers, contributors and affiliates. We are elated to feature such a stunning showstopper, model, entrepreneur and the ‘Queen of Social Media’, Ms. Tyra Banks.
