Currently under development are The Luxury Lifestyle Guide International and LuxeNews International.
As the Publishing Director it falls under my responsibilities to cast a clear vision for the short-term, medium-term and long-term development of the identity of the publishing house and its assets, provide strategic direction and facilitate relationships that are conducive to the creation of progressive world-class publications and services, whilst fostering a working environment that encourages values-driven and creatively innovative collaborations amongst creative, media and business specialists from South Africa and the world over.
The Luxury Lifestyle Guide was launched in February 2011 in trial phase as a blog focusing on Lifestyle, Luxury, Fashion, Design and Leisure. Visually-driven, international in scope and collaborative in spirit, come 2014, The Luxury Lifestyle Guide will be officially launched as a multiplatform Lifestyle, Luxury, Fashion, Design and Leisure magazine in online, iOS and Android formats.
