As we herald in the season Fashion Quarterly showcases rich autumnal vibes on the cover which features changemaker Anita Chhiba aka Diet Paratha. Flick through the pages and you’ll see an exquisite shoot with a blend of the finest international and local brands. Further in, you can read about who she is, her platform, and her take on the power of being seen. In our Trending section we explore the very best of autumn dressing. From occasional dressing with bewitching dresses, outfits inspired by old world charm, and languid layers of the finest tailoring which will have you inspired for the season ahead. If you’re looking for more we pick out the key trends (biker chic, sheer must-haves, the best suiting from NZ designers, and our favourite candy-inspired creations.) Plus, we investigate whether we’re reaching the end of the trend. Our beauty section starts with a vibrant shoot featuring six new beauty looks you should know about, we deep dive into lymphatic drainage massage, plus we have a beauty countdown to your big day. And of course, we fill the pages with the newest and most noteworthy products of the moment. Plus, we take you on a fashionista’s guide to Milan and a luxury escape to Waiheke. In our Life and Culture section we go inside Kiwi ‘it’ girl Laura Hadlow’s dream wedding, give you our favourite cocktail recipes, and tell you about the ‘must-read’ books in FQ’s Book Club. While in On Top we work out your workwear, and ask, what does a professional wear now in this age of hybrid hours?
