Darling Magazine – Issue 20: Beauty of Diversity
Darling is…the art of being a woman.
Darling Magazine holds the modern mold of woman up to the fire to evoke a discussion on femininity and re-shape an authentic design. Darling is a catalyst for positive change; leading women to discover beauty apart from vanity, influence apart from manipulation, style apart from materialism, sweetness apart from passivity, and womanhood without degradation.
This issue's theme is: The Beauty of Diversity– exploring how we can learn to see a wider landscape, seek out new opinions and cherish those different than us, always allowing our hearts to be challenged while remaining unthreatened.
