Here are some of my favourite recent editions: (in no particular order)
For as long as I could remember, Vogue has been my favourite Magazine to read, look, discover and lose time in. It lifted my fascination with Christian Dior and Fashion History. It made me fall in love with Alexa Chung, Keira Knightley, Kate Moss, Miranda Kerr and made me admire Fashion Bloggers such as Susanna Lau (aka Susie Bubble), Nicole Warne (aka Gary Pepper Girl) and many other talents. Their style, their creative edges and funky, charming personalities all combined together to create a feeling of fruitfulness to satisfy your daily fashion cravings.
This year, I was living in the city of Auckland (in the land of New Zealand) at the edge of the world next door to the penguins and kangaroos (Antarctica and Australia in case you were wondering). I spent many hours sitting in the library in the (funnily enough) children’s corner, where there are softer seats for the rear end. Admittedly I read the Australian Edition more frequently compared to the American and UK editions. The Vogue Australia feels closer and more interesting to me considering I am moving there. I felt that I could relate to the stories and could feel deeply inspired by all the news, fashion shows, creations and designs that have been made.
A writer I feel inspired by is Zara Wong. She is the Fashion Features and News Director of Vogue Australia. Her writing style is personal and individual. You can really hear her voice in her writing, rather than hearing a mere article with no personality. Her writing instead, is full of colour and interest and keeps you reading until the very last page. Once you’ve stopped gazing at all the pictures of course.These magazines show that fashion is indeed historical, global, cultural, creative, magical and everything in between.
