Over the past twelve days of unrest, I have been very preoccupied with the critical situation in Egypt.

 

As you know, I am managing editor of Uomo Moda—the first and only all-menswear magazine in Egypt—what I consider “my baby.”  Nevertheless, more precious than my baby are my collaborators in the country.

 

After several days of silence from the onset, I made several calls in vain to my colleagues.  Emails were returned too. 

 

Finally I reached them and learned that all my colleagues are fine.  Despite regulary calls to them, I wish that I could be there with them.

 

Egypt has been a pillar of stability in the region, and I am confident that it will maintain that position in the future.  Unknown to many, it also plays a significant role in the textile industry (see article).

 

Well, I don’t know when we will succeed in publishing the next issue of Uomo Moda, possibly this summer.  In the meanwhile, however, I express my solidarity with the Egyptian people and my hope for a peaceful, democratic Egypt!   

 

As they say in Arabic, “Insh Allah!”
