your feedback

As always: lots of good things in Issue 61 of Good! I really like Rachel Khoo’s approach to food, so the Scandi recipes in From Sweden with Love were a real treat and a great ‘taste’ of nice things to come in her latest cookbook The Little Swedish Kitchen.

gemmaleesuits.com Surf style Sustainable practices underpin the core values of Wellington fashion designer Gemma Cornish. Her just-launched swim and wetsuit line Gemma Lee is colourful as well as adventurous, inspired by rolling waves, foamy white wash, glittering sunspots and golden sands. Unlike standard wetsuits which are made from petro-chemically produced neoprene and toxic glues, Gemma Lee designs are handmade in Australia from geoprene made from limestone and non-toxic glues. The Massey University fashion graduate won the prize for the ‘Most Commercial Collection’ at the 2018 iD International Emerging Designer Awards in Dunedin, and the official launch of her label in August was hosted by the Mayor of Wellington Justin Lester.
