Inside our March 2021 issue!

In this issue, we draw inspiration from the arts

The Coronavirus is still living amongst us, with many parts of the world experiencing new and troublesome variants. The first Covid-19 vaccines roll- out is underway, but help isn’t arriving fast enough; many people are losing their lives or loved ones, hospitals are bulging at the seams. It feels as if days are moving slowly while the world is changing fast. We’re innovating, adjusting and always looking for inspiration to keep us motivated.

In this issue of Glamour, we draw inspiration from the arts. Each section represents different forms and mediums of the artistic world. Our edgy beauty story and African-art-meets- fashion spread are bold, daring and stimulating. In Memoirs, we introduce you to several artists whose work we admire – and offer advice on investing in them.

We also look at art as a form of expression and healing, and share with you different ways of living well, with intention, despite the chaos surrounding
us. Nigerian superstar Tiwa Savage is our cover star, an Afrobeat singer- songwriter who’s one of the most-followed African artists in the world and has many accolades to her name. Her latest album, Celia, has gained over 200 million streams globally and Time magazine has named it one of the top 10 best albums of 2020. Tiwa talks to Glamour about growing up in bustling Lagos, moving to London, #ENDSARS and life in general.

May this issue ignite a spark within you and get your creative juices flowing.

Enjoy the read.

Until next time.
