Blog: Goodbye from your news editor

Joe Ayling | 27 June 2011

Having contributed to just-style for nearly six years it remains a true pleasure to observe and report on the fashion industry.
 
However, a slight change of path means that this week I will be trading Aroq headquarters for Optician magazine in London.
 
There have been many highlights, and I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting the global just-style community at various gatherings.
 
Prime Source Forum in Hong Kong, IAF Convention and Sri Lanka Design Festival have all become vital parts of the just-style calender, and a great chance to meet our readers. Long may this continue.
 
While all these events will stick in the mind, one incident in particular seems to live on in the just-style office, for obvious reasons.
 
And so here I am, grinning like a Cheshire cat at Harrogate Lingerie & Swimwear Exhibition having met supermodel Caprice.

In the meantime, I leave you in the very dependable hands of my editor Leonie, and hope the next news editor of just-style enjoys their tenure as much as I have.
 
Moving across to optics means I'm not completely deserting the fashion world, so please 'keep an eye out' for me in the future.

Joe Ayling.
