I wouldn’t even know where to begin to express how grateful I am for the year that Men In This Town has had. 2014 saw the release of the first Men In This Town book, a dream that was beyond my imagination when I started the blog in 2010. I want to thank all of you who went out and bought a copy for yourself or for a friend, your support really does mean the world to me.

The new year, I am excited to let you know, will see the publication of the Women In This Town book in November. I’ll be topping off the book in March with a trip around the world, capturing what women are doing with fashion in this day and age. If you know of any women who you think would make a great profile in Tokyo, London, Paris, Madrid, New York, LA and Melbourne, please do get in touch.

And lastly, if you can’t wait until November for the Women In This Town book, I have another little project I’ve been working on for the last couple months that you’ll be able to get your hands on a lot sooner than you think. But more on that in the new year! ;)

Have a wonderful holiday season!
