It was the day after my birthday, I was spending that week in Granada, when I received an email in my inbox that read CLASSVOGUE@…. I was a bit surprised and suspicious at the same time and thought it was a joke or a one of those fake emails trying to get money from you. Nevertheless, I was curious so I opened the email and it read “Dear Jerelyn, we came across your website online and think you would be a perfect fit to showcase on our designer profile for British Vogue”. They also said that after reviewing my online presence online they felt that I would make a really unique addition to the page and appeal great to their affluent readers.
I was ecstatic and over the moon to say the least. The first thing I did was ring my husband to tell him what had just happened and he couldn’t believe it either, but after calming down a bit and evaluating everything we decided why not. It is a great opportunity to be featured in Vogue. Obviously, I had to remain calm and enquire more about this proposal that was made it me. I emailed them back to know more after which I found out that Vogue handpicks designers to feature in their Designer profile and I fit the criteria, this is one of the important sections in Vogue for designers along with the Jewellery Designer profile
The Designer Profile showcases different designers from around the world and their design stories to their affluent readers, it is designed with the intention of showcasing range of hand selected upcoming designers to 1.2 million readers of Vogue. Also, the magazine if even more stronger than before after the appointment of Vogue’s new editor Edward Enninful. His first issue was up 50% after 2 weeks on sale in 2018.
Well anyway, I am more than happy to introduce my lovely shoes to you in Vogue’s February issue. I had only dreamed that I would be on British Vogue and here is a dream come true. A proud moment for me and everyone that has been by my side encouraging me in every step I take with Jerelyn Creado as a brand
