Is the March issue your biggest in the year?
Both March and September are key issues as we welcome the new fashion seasons. It’s an exciting time – new stock is beginning to hit the stores and InStyle’s fashion pages offer an aspirational yet service-focused approached to the new looks. In addition to our regular fashion content, our upcoming March issue features a 21-page runway report accompanied by shopable pieces to help our readers translate the trends at home.
For InStyle, our June issue is also one of our biggest as we celebrate the winners of the InStyle and Audi Women of Style Awards, which will mark 10 years in 2018.
What are the editorial highlights from the forthcoming issue?
InStyle’s biannual Clothes We Love special translates the trends straight from the runways. I’m also particularly proud of our beautiful new-season main fashion feature starring Australian actress and huge talent Natasha Liu–Bordizzo. There are also new-season beauty looks to try, and so much more. It’s a jam-packed issue and we can’t wait for it to hit the shelves.
What are some of the things you are looking out for this year?
InStyle has long been a champion of local talent. I’m looking forward to profiling even more Australian names-to-know in 2018. The March issue comes off the back of a gorgeous and highly successful cover with actor Asher Keddie in February. We have big plans for more local covers this year. We’re also very much looking forward to celebrating 10 years of the InStyle and Audi Women of Style Awards, which will commence in our May issue. It is a tent-pole property that has truly stood the test of time and continues to grow and innovate. It’s a hugely exciting year for the brand.
