And it’s all because Devorah was growing tired of the same old photo shoot with the same adolescent fashion models.“Don’t get me wrong,” Devorah explains, “I love this generation’s models and often feature them in my editorial.But there is just something special about a woman with a story.
There is something magical about an icon who can still reign supreme regardless of her age.” These days, it is truly a breath of fresh air to encounter a successful woman who stands behind women.
Devorah Rose is the embodiment of that, and it is a pleasure to see her positivity radiate and rejuvenate all those in her path.
With the cards stacked heavily against anyone who has hope for a career in publishing, Devorah single-handedly transcended the obstacles that discourage and destroy many careers.
In the past decade, numerous publications and editors have tried to make a stake in the East End but had to close their doors.
I knew I had made a friend for life when I asked Devorah if she had ever experienced the feeling of being taken for a joke simply because she was a woman in a boardroom full of men.
Instead of responding, she widened then smiled with her eyes as if to say she had lost count of those moments.
But Devorah has never let the naysayers deter her and she is empowering other women through her bold editorial choices.
This issue of Social Life is especially important, as it celebrates women at every age.
As a journalist, I was naturally intrigued by her simply due to my experience as a writer in New York and the knowledge of how hard it is to stand out in the saturated world of publishing.
