Our Captivating Community!

Hello Westport, Weston and Wilton! It brings me great joy to introduce myself as your new Editor-in-Chief. I couldn’t imagine a greater remit than to reflect on Moffly Media’s mission to ignite our community through conversation and creative collaboration. I have worn many hats in my career and all the roles I hold dear to me have storytelling at their core. From my days at Vogue and Oprah to years spent as Editor-in-Chief of Hamptons and Gotham, through to launching my own agency where I am able to work with an incredible roster of brands, creating craveable content is at the heart of who I am.

Celebrating the vibrancy of our towns, honoring traditions and community pride and being a part of a wave of change are incredibly important to me.

I think of social media as a way to broaden our access to information. It is transforming the world globally and our towns locally and we want you to rely on us to stay informed about who and what to know and where to go daily in Westport, Weston and Wilton.

These pages will be filled with stories that need a deeper dive and can be read curled up fireside, lounging poolside or recharging at Compo Beach.

This issue celebrates high style and forward-thinking leadership, a celebration of monumental moments, namely the 50th anniversary of the Westport Fine Art Fair the centennial of the Fairfield County Hunt Club, ways to make your life luxuriously better from wellness gurus you need to know like Eric Johnson and Sarah Sadie Newett to at-home meal prep and delivery services new to our area.

Debut columnists include Samantha Critchell, Amy Guzzi and Lauren Braun Costello whose expertise in the Connecticut community, style and the culinary world are a welcome addition to our invaluable contributors Emily Liebert, who penned our cover story on Jennifer Fisher and is our go-to for Books coverage, Suzanne Gannon, whose profile of Elizabeth Bolognino takes us into the interior designers new Westport home, where she has recently planted roots, and gives us an exclusive look at a portfolio of Bolognino’s impressive projects; and Jill Johnson who herself celebrates her 20th year contributing to the magazine.

And so much more!

Westport, Weston and Wilton are home to a thriving community of artists and activists, creators, and creatives. I, for one, cannot wait to celebrate them!

A thousand thanks for welcoming us into your homes, inboxes and Instagram feeds.
