ED­I­TOR’S LET­TER

VOGUE Living Australia - - Contents -

Wel­come to the reimag­ined and redesigned Septem­ber/Oc­to­ber is­sue of Vogue Liv­ing. The team has been work­ing tire­lessly on our new look-and-feel over the past few months and I’m ex­cited to fi­nally share this is­sue with you.

I stepped into the ed­i­tor’s role at Vogue Liv­ing not long after hav­ing my first baby — so I’ve come to the job with a re­newed ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the chal­lenges that women face when forg­ing their ca­reers, as well as a new sense of just how driven and re­silient we can be.

So this is­sue is a cel­e­bra­tion of women, our cre­ativ­ity and our ex­cel­lence. On page 114 we share a port­fo­lio of women who make up the world’s most vi­sion­ary de­sign tal­ent — in­clud­ing in­te­ri­ors ma­tri­arch Ros­sana Or­landi, in­no­va­tor (and new mum) Faye Too­good, and a van­guard of in­spir­ing fe­male cre­atives. They share their wis­dom and ad­vice on how to thrive in an in­dus­try that is still very male dom­i­nated.

In keep­ing with the fo­cus on fe­male em­pow­er­ment, this is­sue also marks the launch of our ex­cit­ing part­ner­ship with BMW, cel­e­brat­ing Women of Ex­cel­lence. Over the next six months we’ll be host­ing two in­ti­mate din­ners in Mel­bourne and Syd­ney where a se­lect group of guests can en­joy a panel dis­cus­sion fea­tur­ing some of Aus­tralia’s bright­est de­sign tal­ent. ››
