We know that clothing has the power to transform, and that is the idea we're exploring in TZR's Fall Fashion Issue. The right piece can stretch someone’s self-worth in ways nothing else quite does, and the looks we put on represent who we are in that moment: We’re coy or we’re driven or we’re glamorous or we’re androgynous, all based on how the fabric on our bodies is stitched together. As New York Fashion Week officially starts, it's fun to take a moment to recognize the impact, sometimes surface-level, sometimes profound, that clothes have on us — and spend the rest of September celebrating that.
Throughout Roald Dahl’s incomparable writing career, he took readers of all ages on voyages atop giant peaches, inside whimsical chocolate factories, and introduced the world to a precocious young girl named Matilda. His work continues to inspire anyone who opens one of his books, and it’s why every September we celebrate Roald Dahl Day.
This is Bustle's second annual Rule Breakers issue, and it's especially exciting to introduce our honorees — six trailblazing women changing industries, minds, and the world. They are a voting rights leader, a market-moving entrepreneur, a body image crusader, a fearless talk show host, a viral sensation, and a revered mentor. We still live in an unequal society and it's hard, it's really hard, to have the energy to fight for change. Which is why everyone in this issue is so worthy of attention and awe. They're moving the needle. Let's all try to add a bit more of that to our day. Let's rewrite the rules together.
