editor’s letter

EMPOWER ACH YEAR, I have the privilege of being a judge for the National Designer Award (NDA) at Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival. The award celebrates emerging fashion designers and, even after five years in the judge’s seat, I’m always left in awe at the depth of creative talent in this country. And the determination! Let’s face it, starting a fashion business in the current retail environment is tough, so you have to have fire in your belly. This year’s finalists were exceptional: Third Form, Amxander, Chris Ran Lin, Mndatory and P.E Nation. It was fantastic to see three menswear brands in that list; as I said, depth of talent. Congratulations go to P.E Nation’s Pip Edwards and Claire Tregoning, who won the 2018 NDA. In just two years of operation,…

CHLOË PAUL Since moving home from London in 2011, the photographer has covered all the biggest parties on Sydney’s social scene, including BAZAAR’s 20th anniversary bash at Matt Moran’s new Smoke rooftop bar at Barangaroo House (see Flash! on page 177). The elements that make a great party are … “good food, wine and venue mixed with an excellent event planner and stylist. But you must finish off with an excellent DJ or playlist or the event can end up being very dull.” The biggest change in parties I’ve noticed since moving back is … “phones. Parties can now be governed by social media. I understand this is great for clients (everywhere you look, someone is documenting everything), but even from behind the lens, people have almost lost a sense of…

inspired by what you’ve seen in bazaar ?

Firstly, congratulations on your 20th year, and here’s to many more, especially in our current digital age. I don’t know what it is, but there just seems to be something different about this year. I’m loving how it is now becoming normal for women to have strong points of view and to want to share them with others. I love how women are wanting to help each other succeed instead of seeing each other as competition. I love how there are becoming more and more female role models for young girls and women to look up to, like Samantha Kerr receiving Young Australian of the Year, or stylish Karla Welch standing for more than just pretty clothes and using her public profile to start a conversation. Even Margot Robbie is…

Since revealing her first collection for Christian Dior in 2016, creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri has been on a mission to create a wardrobe for modern women, and in actor Jennifer Lawrence, she couldn’t have hoped for a better face. Whether she’s gracefully tripping up the stairs in Christian Dior couture on the way to pick up an Oscar or opting for a black Chiuri couture creation to support the #MeToo movement, the actor’s relationship with fashion is empowering and thoughtful yet utterly unpretentious. And, much like her bold and diverse choice of movie roles, Lawrence isn’t afraid to experiment with her look. One day she’ll layer masculine outerwear over a minidress and boots, the next she’ll attend a premiere in a softly pleated pink dress, both worn with a…

wish list

I would describe my style as CLASSIC, but with an unexpected TWIST. I love Blazé Milano for BLAZERS [13] and Re/Done for denim [6] . The JACQUEMUS knot-front shirt [2] is another favourite. I am also loving PASTEL SUITS by Tibi [1], and I honestly love EVERYTHING P.E Nation do [12]. As for shoes, I love GIANVITTO ROSSI — I find them super comfortable, but NOT BORING. My wish list shoes are the Levy ankle boots [7]. My go-to shoes are my GUCCI Princetown loafers [14]. I really invest in my JEWELLERY, knowing that I will one day pass it down to MY GIRLS. I love Céline [15] and Cartier [3], and I would really love a LOCKET by Loquet London [8] — you can create your own locket filled…
