Palestine in vogue
Posted by adiamondinsunlight on July 24, 2008
In addition to books like Sami and the Time of the Troubles, which I mentioned yesterday, the magic boxes that my parents sent earlier this week also contained six months’ worth of magazines.
I love magazines. Well, not all magazines – I can do without the celebrity-chasing ones. But food magazines, travel magazines, and fashion magazines are all guilty pleasures – as in, I feel a bit guilty reading them rather than more substantive fare, but the pleasures are totally worth it.
The April 2008 Vogue included a feature on local beauty products from around the world, including a mention of olive oil from Palestine:
Woo-hoo Vogue! Its been my favorite fashion magazine since I was 13 and stumbled across old copies in my aunt Sparkle’s living room. I love the elegance of the clothing it showcases and the quality of the writing in its articles.
And I love its “fashion forward” matter-of-fact recognition of Palestine, too.
