Letter From the Editor

KMAC Couture has quickly become the fashion event of the region. This year’s event was absolutely spectacular and continues to be buzzed about around town. In this issue of The Voice-Tribune – which was one of the event’s sponsors – we’ve bumped up our page count so we could provide extended coverage.

There is no shortage of hatmakers in our community, and each one has a special story about how they got started. Laura Moser’s, however, is simply inspiring. Somehow, the owner of Simply Laura Hats & Accessories was able to turn her grief over the death of her child into the motivation she needed to take a leap of faith. You can find out more about the courageous milliner in this issue in a story written by The Voice-Tribune’s Managing Editor Mariah Kline.

As I shared last week, The Voice-Tribune continues to add to our staff. This time, I’d like to welcome photographer Kathryn Harrington, who joins us full-time to shoot events and editorial content. She is immensely talented and passionate about her craft. I couldn’t be happier to have her on board.

It seems Mother Nature has had enough of toying with us and is going to play nice for a bit– at least that’s what our local meteorologists have said. That means Saturday will be perfect for what I always think of as the true kickoff to Derby season: the Kentucky Derby Festival’s Thunder Over Louisville (for the record, this Hoosier will enjoy the event from the other side of the river). Whatever you do, I hope you enjoy.
