Southlake Style

What Does Style Mean to You?

April's Letter from the Editor.

We ask and answer this very question almost daily as we prepare every issue of Southlake Style. For some, it’s wearing exquisite clothing; for others, it’s enjoying a meal at a fine restaurant or attending a first-class arts event. Although it might be easy to get caught up in this literal translation, style is more than fashion, luxury and elegance on display. In our offices, we also categorize style as a way of life — and the style of our readers is such to take active roles, voluntarily working for the betterment of those around us.

In this, our first-ever Style Issue, we profile eight men and women who embody both style and substance. Top entrepreneurs, artists, a chef, community servants and a significant member of public safety are among those we feature, and we couldn’t be prouder to tell their stories (and show off their stylish outfits courtesy of Malouf’s).

Also at the forefront of style and substance are the women of the National Charity League’s Southlake chapter who are prime examples of what it means to give fashionably. In last month’s annual fashion show, local mothers and their daughters worked together to raise more than $70,000 for charities including GRACE Feed Our Kids, Metroport Meals on Wheels, Southlake Special Olympics and more.

Additionally, we’re excited to introduce our cover girl, Abby Williamson. At just 15 years old, she’s already an accomplished IMG model with an impressive print portfolio. And with a dad like Southlake city councilman, Randy Williamson, it’s evident Abby has a good head on her shoulders.

Each in their own way, these individuals are shining examples of those making our home a more stylish place to live.
