Dear Readers,

Welcome to the March 2017 issue of Shine on Hollywood Magazine! As we say goodbye to the frosty winter season and welcome the boundless beauty of spring, we bring to you with great satisfaction our special edition of Top Asian Industry Professionals issue! There’s never shortage of talent in this town as we immerse you in the world of celebrity fashion design, and bring you up close to some of the hardest working designers in the industry, whose allure go beyond the camera flashes.

This issue we feature top fashion designer André Soriano. During his teens, André left the political upheaval in his native Philippines and immigrated to the US with his mother and siblings. Grasping the boundless opportunities that his new adoptive home offered, André used the resources at his disposal to achieve his dream of becoming a professional designer. His hard work paid off when he was invited to participate in a reality television show called Styled to Rock. Now working alongside the top talent in Hollywood, André is able to enjoy the fruits of his labor, while still giving back to the San Diego community, never forgetting the turn of fortune provided by the opportunities in America.

We’re also going to introduce you to contemporary still life and landscape artist, Charisse Abellana. Another artist hailing from the Philippines, Charisse’s roots taught her the closeness and value of family and extended families, while her life in America taught her the strength of the individual, and the prospect that comes with freedom of expression as an artist. Using oils, watercolor, charcoal, ink on paper and mixed media in work, she uses the thick, bold strokes a palette knife provides to convey her emotions in the compositions unique to her work. Charisse’s paintings have been auctioned, using the profits to help the underprivileged.

At the age of six, Kiki Wang took the first steps in her career as a fashion designer by sewing together outfits for her baby dolls. Even at that fledgling age, her illustrations were also admired and collected by her young peers, and the impression awoke a passion for design in the young girl. Kiki immersed herself in school and strove in her studies. But she never lost sight of her dream, and after finishing her formal education in finance, she continued to pursue a career in fashion design by taking more classes at a local school. After finding success as an entrepreneur, she took the next bold step and moved to the US to continue her studies in design. She went on to found the fashion label CSP. Since then, her designs have gleamed through red carpets here and abroad.

As we say goodbye to Summer and hello to Fall, we boldly move forward and bring to you with anticipation, our first ever issue featuring Top Chef/Culinary Industry Professionals. There’s never shortage of talent in this town, as we present you with delicious inspiring stories from the gourmet kitchens of Hollywood and beyond. This month’s cover story features celebrity Gourmet Raw Vegan Chef, Be*Live. Brian James Lucas was born with dental and gastrointestinal disorders that threatened his life during childhood. Later as an adult facing legal troubles, and without formal culinary education, his initial investment in a raw vegan restaurant gave him the opportunity to develop his innate skills, and eventually Lucas reinvented himself using the new social media technologies, building a following as a celebrity chef and a pioneer of the gourmet raw vegan movement. If you’re curious about Raw Cuisine you won’t want to miss this article! Next up is Nomi Shannon, a living pioneer of the modern Gourmet Raw Food movement. After a series of health complications, Nomi gradually became a full Raw Vegan. After graduating from college at the age of 40, she became an educator in body cleansing using the raw lifestyle and recipes. Now at age 73, she’s in the best shape of her life running her own successful online business and has earned awards and accolades from the Raw Vegan community for her work and groundbreaking cook books. For those health-conscious readers interested in switching to “Raw,” look for tips on how to best make this salubrious decision. This month we are also featuring Chef Sean McDuff, who dropped out of school at the age of 17, and quickly realized the value of education. He went on to complete his GED. Sean found an interest in cooking and continued his journey by enrolling in the Art Institute of Atlanta, where he would go on to study the culinary arts. By the age of 20, Sean was winning awards and working in some of the hottest kitchens in the Atlanta area. He then went on to found Live2EatWell, a meal delivery service that offers an opportunity for families to eat healthy, locally-sourced, prepared meals in an effort to improve their well-being.
