Designer, TV personality and author Colin Cowie will launch a column with the November/December 2009 issue of VIVmag (vivmag.com/colincowie), the online luxury magazine for women.
In his first column, Cowie will offer event-etiquette advice including easy ways for gracious hosts to make their guests feel welcome.
"I always have been an advocate of living a healthy and balanced life filled with passion without spending too much time or money, which is a shared desire of VIVmag women," said Cowie.
The current story is sprinkled with beautiful "pop-up" imagery and instructional video of Cowie creating tablescapes and revealing tips for helping ensure painless pampering of friends and family throughout the holiday season.
"As a world-renowned arbiter of style, Colin Cowie connects with our readers. He understands their desires for achieving the confidence that comes from engaging life at a higher level, while creating memorable yet hassle-free experiences for their loved ones," said Anne M. Russell, editor in chief, VIVmag.
The current issue of VIVmag is the first of six upcoming contributions from Cowie:
Renewal & Weight Loss: Cowie's Decadence without the Guilt
Travel & Earth month: travel tips for gracious journeys
Spa & Yoga: the take-home spa, including DIY Recipes
"Real People" issue: at home with Colin Cowie
