This month we’re proud to bring you an impressive crop of young Australian talent. They’re not only united by their work ethic and ambition, but more importantly they’ve stayed true to their own style of operating in the process. It’s an inspiring lesson for us all. Leading the charge is cover star Jessica Mauboy who, on the eve of her first album release in seven years, shares her fascinating journey from almost calling it quits to falling back in love with her craft (p70). She’s joined by the rising stars of The Australian Ballet (p88), activist and model Robyn Lawley (p103), the fresh new face of Australian modelling, Sarsha Chisholm (p52), under-the-radar actor Alexander England (p84), and young actor on the rise Olivia DeJonge (p78).

LET’S GET SHIRTY We never thought we’d say it, but a plethora of boxy, brightly printed shirts has us itching to channel “dad on holiday” style this season. Keeping the vibe in check is advised, so tuck yours into a feminine skirt or wear it loose over tailored pants, and then swing a structured bag for good measure. LBD LOVE French creative Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s (right) capsule for Iris & Ink kicks off party season with five flirty cocktail dresses and one very chic jumpsuit. Cast entirely in black, the range is anything but basic, spotlighting luxe texture from velvet to silk instead. HIP TO BE SQUARE Put your best foot forward in a pair of trending square-toe sandals. TOP TOME Read up on iconic London arts school Central Saint Martins, including the mass of fashion talent…

1 THE HANDBAG “This ruby-red bag is the dose of colour my wardrobe needs—even better that it comes in the form of a charming mini-briefcase.” — BETTINA TYRRELL, BEAUTY EDITOR 2 THE SHOES “A demure kitten heel balances this bold chequerboard print.

LOVE LETTER Prada is the maestro of messaging, and the romance of a rose juxtaposed against a utilitarian white shirt speaks volumes about the multifaceted woman who wears it. MAX OUT Over minimalism? These delightful Roger Vivier mules offer an antidote to understated style by epitomising the brand’s opulent aesthetic.

ADUT AKECH IN VALENTINO Amid a week of global climate strikes, the South Sudanese-Australian model cemented her solidarity to the cause as a host of the Green Carpet Fashion Awards. The Milanese event celebrates fashion houses committed to sustainability in their practice, and Akech’s custom Valentino gown—made with organic-certified silk—is proof that a conscious approach to creation can still result in the very best sartorial delights. Looking like a vision in the ice-blue off-the-shoulder design, the model with a voice for change is unsurprisingly experiencing a meteoric rise to the top of the fashion game. FASHION FLASHBACK After hitting its sartorial stride in the ’80s, and again in the early 2000s, the bubble hem is back for round three. Settling comfortably into the latest rotation of red-carpet looks, the volume-filled trend sure knows…
