"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.
Photographer & Stylist: Jessica Shirley

This month we introduce a new accessories feature concluding our fashion spread, it is a chance to showcase the detail of the shoots - accessories.
Wow this is it, the first ever published fashion shoot that I have coordinated, this month marks the start of a new position at Admire magazine.
Along with the photography I now coordinate the fashion spread, I am so lucky to have a fantastic assistant stylist: Hannah Beard who brings a wealth of knowledge and of-course fresh style ideas and inspiration to our work. Together we liase with retailers, hair, makeup and location contributors to bring you high quality fashion all put together in Nelson, with real Nelson product and people modelling.

The upcoming March edition of Admire Magazine (out this Saturday!) marks the first fashion spread that I have coordinated. I have taken on previous stylist and friend Sonya Leusink Sladen's role as Fashion Stylist as well as continuing on with the photography of the spread. I have been very lucky to have hired a wonderful assistant to help me style and keep my head together on the day of the shoot, Hannah Beard.
Hannah Beard is a 25-year-old who has a strong passion and desire for Fashion. She moved to Nelson in March 2016 after living in Wellington for 8 years where she studied fashion design and business studies at Massey University. After her studies Hannah worked for two children’s clothing boutiques where she began her fashion career in retail, online sales and merchandising. This then lead to opportunities in design, management and directing photo shoots.
Hannah and I are both very excited to be doing what we love and look forward to bringing a range of beautiful and quality fashion spreads to our Nelson Admire Magazine readers. Look out for our first edition this Saturday with The Nelson Mail. In the mean time here is a sneak peak at Autumn Blush...
