We’ve been fired up at Darling lately about the amount of women rising up in the world to create real change, which reflects the theme of this issue: Fierceness. Spring is the exact time of year to truly wake up, to realize our power, to be assertive, to let the sails go full force. In these pages you’ll find inspiring interviews, bright and bold photography (our cover and cover story was shot in Milan, Italy!) and deep essays that will really challenge your status quo.

From Sarah Dubbeldam’s Letter from the Editor:

“There are too many things in the world that need the touch of women—those that only our psyche can solve, that only her touch can heal, that only her intuition can decipher … may we open our eyes wider, not letting ourselves nod off to sleep, because honestly, we all must keep one another awake to the full if we are going to really leave impressions in the ground where we’ve walked.”

Also, you’ll notice a new change in this issue—advertisements! Don’t freak out, we aren’t becoming a glossy mag [smile]. This was a congruent choice with the message of being fierce. Darling has a lot of work to do in this world, and in order to grow, to spread our message more, to do more good, we’ve realized we need to partner with other brands. We promise, they will always be pretty, and things you’ll like, because we like them!

In Darling Issue 15 you will find:

  • Inside The Achiever A piece on assertiveness about how to make yourself visible and credible as a woman without coming across as pushy.
  • Inside The Stylist An intimate interview with Rosanne Stuart, mother of Madeline Stuart, the first professional model with Down syndrome. She is a beautiful voice of truth reminding us that we are all equal, that everyone should have equal opportunity in life and that the level of society’s comfort with disability can and should change.
  • Inside The Confidant | An interview with Joanna Gaines, star of the hit show, “Fixer Upper” on HGTV. She talks with us about purpose, self-confidence and the risk of making someone’s day. 
  • Inside The Beautician A feature on Dulce Candy Ruiz, Youtube star and inspiration for her time spent in the Army, her vulnerability about her struggles with depression and low self-esteem and aspirational views on true beauty.
