editor’s letter

Welcome to 2020! As we usher in a new decade – hopefully with chilled bubbles in hand – it’s exciting to imagine what wonders lie ahead. While the “teens” was the decade of disruption, it was also a time of “awokening”, when we harnessed the power of people uniting for change. My prediction is the “soaring ’20s” will continue that trend – on steroids. Which brings me to our February edition. This month is dedicated to an issue close to the hearts of many Indigenous people, and needs to be on the radar of all Australians so we, too, can unite for change. But before I explain, I have two confessions. Firstly, it was only recently I discovered the shameful fact that our constitution doesn’t recognise our Indigenous people. Also, we’re…

THE TREND PASTEL POWER From the boardroom to the bar and beyond … never has a sartorial cliché rung more true than when summing up these sorbet suits. Saccharine, sure, but also undeniably insouciant (even when worn as simple separates). THE TREND GARDEN PARTY Banish bold blooms in favour of fine, folk-inspired florals. The brief: dainty and ditsy prints, shapes that hark back to the ’70s, and a primary palette of sky blue, crimson and mustard. Consider it a girlish new take on geek-chic. STYLE TIP Lightweight and roomy, a fabric tote is the season’s most practical (and prettiest) accessory. THE TREND DENIM EVOLUTION When Levi Strauss created the first-ever blue jean, did he comprehend the endless potential of denim? Smart little shift dresses; oversized jackets cinched at the waist; sleek wrap skirts and artful fabric-splicing… Thankfully, today’s designers know…

CENTRE STAGE Revolutionary Australian dance company Bangarra celebrates 30 years It was 1989. The stage was set: following the bicentenary celebrations of European settlement, the country was divided. The word ‘reconciliation’ had just been voiced for the first time and there was a growing demand for Indigenous land rights to be recognised. It was at this pivotal moment that Bangarra danced onto our stages for the first time, and the message was clear: Australian society must change to give space to Indigenous voices. Three decades on, this ethos is still at the core of everything the Bangarra Dance Theatre does. Artistic director Stephen Page, who founded the company of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performers, says, “We’ve spent so much of our lives having non-Indigenous perspectives in our stories. [At Bangarra], we…

it’s time

JESSICA MAUBOY, SINGER “My middle name is Hilda, after my grandmother. Nana was a soaring power. She was an Indigenous woman who fell in love with a white European man; it was a secret love because there was still segregation at the time. Being an Indigenous woman with a white fella, Nana struggled. But she stuck to her path. I think that’s where I get my fire from. I was born on Dreamtime land and grew up in Darwin with my mum and four sisters in the suburb of Wulagi. I walked to school every day hand in hand with my sisters, and we’d swim in the local waterfall in the afternoons – minding the freshwater crocs. I feel like I was born cultural. I am Darwin, I am the Northern…
