Read the mag: Issue 192

Lonely Hearts Club

Hi friends,

We’ve now hit deep spring, a time of new beginnings. And while our budding editorial team continues to set course, this issue also marks a new beginning for us.

Right now much of the fashion industry is turning towards Spring Racing – and all the pomp, festivity and style that comes with it. This year, instead, we’ve chosen to turn away. The closest we’ll come to racing coverage is our Racing Stripes editorial on page 28, bringing together a vibrant clash of animal prints, faux fur and vegan leather. We also turn the spotlight on accessories that will join your celebrations with zeal, while still enduring past spring (page 24).

Elsewhere in this issue, we speak with four trailblazing women making waves in the music scene. Nicole Millar and Jaguar Jonze talk life as a woman in the industry today (page 14), Thandi Phoenix highlights those groundbreakers before her (page 18) and metal vocalist Karina Utomo opens up about how she developed her thick skin (page 20).

We also explore the concept of compassion fatigue (page 22) and consider men’s fashion through a softer lens (page 36).

Until next time,
The FJ team xx
