04 Aug The Australian Brands To Know Love & Support Now!
The last time I sat to write our Style Culture magazine we were adjusting to the new season, introducing warmer layers while looking ahead to styles that transform your cold weather wardrobe. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined what was going to happen next ‘again’.
As I type this letter we find ourselves in week 6 of a covid-19 lockdown here in Sydney, NSW 🙁 It’s hard to know what will happen next but if we as a nation have learned anything over the last 18 months or so it’s to not take anything for granted. Circumstances can alter and change fast, one minute we’re planning weekends away with the girls (true story) the next we look for ways to hide, conceal and prolong hair colour fade – the struggle is real my friends.
One thing’s for sure though, we as Australians are a determined nation. My highest hope is to return to a new kind of norm that enables us to find the happy days, be inspired by one another and explore new places like Australians have always loved to do.♥♥
Producing a fashion newsletter and magazine during a pandemic makes for an interesting thought process. Do we run on schedule covering hot seasons topics planned several weeks before? Have our readers had it with the term ‘loungewear’? Is there anyone even remotely interested in changing out of their Ugg boots? Oh if I only had the answers! But one thing I do know is, most- if not all of us here are ready for that something different, wouldn’t you agree?
Enjoy our jam packed all Australian made issue dedicated to Aussie brands and businesses needing our support like never before! This month we honour an Australian success story Celebrating 25 years of Iconic Mimco. I’ve also worn my all time favourites featured above in our cover letter, and closing with my top three fav’s for August’s KK Hit List
May August continue to bring you all good strength and positive energy as we navigate through these historic times together. Looking forward to happier days, times of promise filled with laughter, feel good moments spent with friends and social occasions in abundance just perfect for getting dressed up again!
Until next time,
Kerry K xo
