As quoted by WWD's EIC Ed Nardoza in his Editor's Letter:
'Also common to The Six for this issue: the arresting photographs by Nigel Parry.Dispatched to three continents over six days, Parry produced beautiful work on the fly, and with nary a peep of complaint. You’ve heard about diva photographers? Parry’s the refreshing yin to that unfortunate yang. His adventure was not unlike that of WWD’s intrepid staff, who shipped this 250-page publication in three days.'
