"We all grow up wanting to know exactly what is it that we were born to do. Some of us spend hours on end applying ourselves to things completely irrelevant to what makes us as individuals shine. When people ask me what I am passionate about, it's evidently the easiest question for me to answer, Fashion. It is clearly what I was meant to do. Being the Creative Director of Men's Culture Magazine allows me to demonstrate this very passion for what I consider to be a vital aspect of what we, consider art. Fashion moves, it is uncontainable, which is why I am constantly chasing to create inspiration for all individuals who indulge into my articles. Everyone has the ability to be a stylist. Maybe not so much in terms of a profession, but from the moment they wake up to the moment they turn off for the night, we are all capable to articulate through what we wear. Potential lies everywhere especially in the places we last expect. The articles and posts that I style are just a glimpse into what we can achieve together. I will do my best to expose the creativity I envision. And my goal will be to ensure confidence and power through what we wear. We are the statement. We are Men's Culture Magazine." - Ayaz Raja
