The tide of change is rising and with it, our hope for the future.
We’re excited to say that our new, thoughtful and fresh perspective-filled Spring Issue 47 has landed! Our stunning cover features the designs of Indigenous artist and jewellery designer Krystal Hurst of Gillawarra Arts, modelled by her niece Angie Davis in Yuin Country waters, shot by Jay Cronan. Krystal says that her work aims to “show the enduring connection to the sea that we have as Worimi people. The ocean, the sand, the wind, and waves are a part of our being. It is also a statement that says we not only have sovereignty over our lands but our waters too.”
Inside the mag’s beautiful pages: Indigenous fashion advocate Yatu Widders-Hunt explores the power of ancient traditions and how Australia’s First Nations people are using fashion to tell stories of resistance and change; follow the threads that bind us through the practice of craft creating community and connection; meet an influencer and blogger talking about the big issues around size diversity, inclusion and slow fashion; read about sustainability and the future of fashion with Kit Willow, founder of luxury label KITX; changemaker and Obama Foundation leader Alice Mahar of The Corner Store on her work preserving food security; social researcher Rebecca Huntley tells us how we need to be talking about climate change to make a difference; and we look to the future of the tourism industry with a more kind and considered mode of travel.
Plus you’ll find tips for flexing your green thumb in the name of good mental health; read about a company putting circular economy principles into action on a global scale; advice for putting boundaries between our real and digital lives; Indigenous artist Naomi Hobson’s draws inspiration from Country; we delve into the nuances of natural, hand-poured makeup; discover the wild, untamed nostalgia of Erin Malloy’s sustainable jewellery brand; learn how to navigate certification and symbols; what science says flowers can do for your health; and download a free sewing pattern for our relaxed, ready-for-anything linen skirt made for springtime venturing; and so much more!
And don’t forget: we print each issue in Australia on carbon-neutral paper and offset all production emissions through Carbon Neutral’s reforestation biodiversity project, which works with traditional land owners to revegetate degraded farmland with native trees for carbon sequestration. Plus we plant a tree with every new subscription!
