Hi friends,

As we sit to pen our introduction to this next issue of Fashion Journal, we take a moment of pause. For us, this issue has been an opportunity to take stock of our rapidly evolving fashion industry and consider where it’s heading. While we’ve long been supporters of emerging talent, we’ve never been more excited about its future direction.

On page 28 we introduce just a handful of names from a long list of labels who are carving out their own models of retail, with results benefitting both the consumer and environment.  

We also speak with the journalist behind @ausindigenousfashion, Yatu Widders Hunt (page 20). Through her Instagram account, Yatu is giving a platform to a growing number of Indigenous Australian designers who continue to be largely ignored by mainstream fashion media.

Also in this issue, we profile a new crop of brands and businesses operating with sustainability at their core (page 40), look at beauty newcomers and ingredients for Spring (page 44), and prepare for a change in season with Converse (page 16).

The FJ team xx
