I GOT IT FROM MY MAMA

Fashion Quarterly - - Editor’s Letter -

Gen­er­ally I am quite the tough nut, and proudly so. But give me a heart­felt mes­sage on the sub­ject of love — specif­i­cally that be­tween a mother and child — and I’m a com­plete mess. I had tis­sues at the ready as the an­swers came in for our Love

You More feature (page 78), where six of our favourite and most fash­ion­able NZ duos speak of their unique bonds and how their love has shaped them into the peo­ple they are to­day. Whether yours is one of love and laugh­ter or fraught with is­sues, it’s hard to deny the sig­nif­i­cance the re­la­tion­ship with our moth­ers has on us as adults. My mother’s love of NZ fash­ion and magazines ul­ti­mately led me to a ca­reer in the fash­ion me­dia, and I of­ten won­der how my love of style will in­flu­ence my son Paddy in his life and on his ca­reer path. On the topic of ca­reers, this time of year we’re of­ten dream­ing of mak­ing a change or tak­ing a punt and pur­su­ing a dif­fer­ent pas­sion. In On­wards and Up­wards (page 56), three in­spir­ing women share sto­ries of their ‘ca­reer 180s’, and how they did just that. Of course, if the only thing weigh­ing on your mind as you gear up for that well-de­served Christ­mas break is find­ing the per­fect swim­suit, look no fur­ther than our five-page swimwear edit on page 42. You’ll find me in a sun safe, long-sleeved one-piece that I’m thrilled to see has be­come a main­stay style and not just an op­tion for tod­dlers. Lastly, if you want to get your body beach-ready in lux­ury sur­rounds, our ex­plo­ration of pre­mium fit­ness stu­dios in

Wealth Club (page 168) is a great place to start. I hope you get to read this is­sue re­lax­ing in the sun, and have a happy, joy-filled

Christ­mas and New Year.
