We're Gonna Party Like It's Our Birthday!

But before we do...Our beloved society friends came out in full force to make this year's a special one.

We're Gonna Party Like It's Our Birthday!
Hubert Burda Media

Imagine being on set 60 times to photograph 60 people when all you have to work with are the same 24 hours in a seven-day week and a one-month print cycle. Despite the deadline-related anxiety, this issue was absolutely gratifying and meaningful. Made all the more so because we managed to catch up with 60 friends and also bring to life the stories of a further 40 (whose photographs were thankfully pre-shot). All their stories are woven throughout the magazine. As an anniversary issue, this is as much a big-bang celebration as it is a statement our DNA; one that sets the tone for the next 11 months to come.

A big thank you to everyone who took time to join us in this journey and also for the lovely well wishes. To many more great years ahead! See you at the Ball.
