|The idea for String Magazine came to Maria after she graduated from the Fashion Arts program at John Casablancas Institute in the summer of ‘07. Her love for Vancouver and her dedication to the growth of its fashion and arts industries are what has made the magazine come to life. She also likes to sew, snowboard, and explore the great outdoors. She has a Minolta film SLR camera, some watercolour paints, a near-abandoned diary, and box-fulls of fabric in her closet that she will eventually get to one day. For now, it’s all about String Magazine and everything that comes along with it, and that’s just dandy with her.|

|An enormous fascination for the beauty of story-telling through fashion photography is what attracted Kathy to having a desire in creating them herself one day. Always one for collaborating and supporting others who share the same interests is what makes the opportunity she has been given at String Magazine most satisfying. Kathy has an enormous appreciation for art, music, the people who create it, and the place that she resides. Vancouver is home.|

Section Editor – Boutiques
As boutiques editor, Serena is always on the lookout for interesting, new and off-beat shops to feature in String. Serena’s credit card stays firmly at home on these scouting trips, as Vancouver’s boutiques have more than enough goodies to tempt this reformed shopaholic. Instead, she funnels her energy into writing, reading voraciously and living vicariously through the online personas of jet-set bloggers like Garance Dore and Hanneli Mustaparta. She also nurses an unhealthy obsession with movies from the 1930s and 40s starring either William Powell or Myrna Loy, or both.
