Letter from the Editor-in-Chief:
We welcome you to the soft launch of Haute Features. An international feature site built to bring fresh thinking and a new, more diverse and inclusive approach to the ideals of beauty. We celebrate what it means to be beautiful, through individuality, art, and culture. We strive to take the time to get to know everyone who submits to us, and we welcome those who would like to become an ambassador or a part of the HF team. We believe in forming a safe space for artists to connect and create together, and are always looking for curators, creative directors, and artists to build with us.
We have noticed what happens when you live through an era of rapid change and change is certainly all around us. There is an inevitable surge of artistic creativity and a need to be heard. We are all in a transformative phase through internal and external experiences. We are changing our ideas of who we are, what we want, how to protect our energies, and pushing the limits of what we are capable of. We see a world that challenges us through unpredictability and uncertainty. We shield ourselves from others - strangers to all - borders both physical and figurative. So here we offer a place of harbour from daily struggles. A place where we can retreat into beauty and art. A place where we can connect and create.
Through these beginning stages of Haute Features, we aim to build together, while bringing opportunities for exposure and narrative. The chance to have your voice heard as an artist and to allow the world to see you in your chosen light. We are excited to continue to expand through articles, interviews, coordinating shoots and videos. We plan to celebrate inspiring people, who we hope will provoke some stimulating thoughts. Everyone is unique, and everyone has a story, what is yours?
