Dana Tomić HughesDESIGN WRITERAn interior architect by training, Tomić Hughes says that she became an editor, design writer and digital publisher by accident. “Having worked in the industry across a variety of amazing projects for more than a decade,” she says, “I started [my website] Yellowtrace eight years ago in my spare time so I could share my ongoing research, knowledge and passion for design.” Tomić Hughes’s inaugural column for Vogue Living this issue talks about the female retail zone (page 84). “I loved reflecting on how women are changing the world of design,” she says, “and how our evolving sensibility is giving rise to a new definition of the ‘feminine aesthetic’.” While she’s a Sydneysider, she admits a huge part of her heart still belongs to Yugoslavia — the…
