DE­SIGN WRITER An in­te­rior ar­chi­tect by train­ing, Tomi´c 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.” Tomic´ 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 coun­try she grew up in but which no longer ex­ists. She is most inpsired by the hu­man spirit and peo­ple who are pas­sion­ate about their work, who stay true to them­selves and fol­low their dreams, even when things seem im­pos­si­ble. yel­low­ @yel­low­trace
