Admire Fashion: March 2017

"The change of season seems an apt time to also have a change here at Admire Magazine. As we welcome in autumn and all the glorious colours that come with it, we also mark a change in our fashion team. Sonya Leusink Sladen has stepped down from styling our regular fashion spreads, which are put together here in Nelson - but will continue to offer us style advice in her monthly column. Stepping up to the styling challenge is our fashion photographer Jessica Shirley, who this month has styled her first fashion spread for Admire (along with photographing it), with help from style assistant Hannah Beard." - Vanessa Phillips, Editor.
