Women In Business Nominee - Luann Petix, Editor-in-Chief / Founder

This position provides her with a daily outlet for building visual campaigns, forecasting trends and reaching a demographic of thirsty fashionistas who need their magazine fix on a regular basis. DAMSEL has made its way to the top of the ranks with fashion labels, PR firms and the beauty world at large, making it the must see, must-be-in publication. Since launching the magazine, Petix continues to increase its caliber, bringing in international talents, acclaimed television/movie stars and globally-recognized supermodels; she has even taken the cyber world by storm with a cutting-edge website. The foundation Petix envisioned and constructed for DAMSEL has not only been realized - it has gained a loyal readership base and limitless potential.

Luann Petix & Coastal Living Magazine

Having worked with Allison & Lauren at TO Media in the past, has always been a pleasure but last weeks experience was unimaginable. We ventured to the beach to shoot for Coastal Living's story on surfer girls and their beauty routines. This time, I was the "talent". Myself, Oleema Miller, Veronica Kay-Baker were chosen for their editorial, coming out in the July/August 09 issue.
I am honored and grateful, thank you.

we are beau branding...
