Vogue Australia appoints sustainability editor

By Global Fashion Agenda

Vogue Australia has taken its devotion to sustainability to the next level by appointing Clare Press as its sustainability editor-at-large. As the first Vogue in the world, the fashion magazine has created a new position dedicated to covering sustainability in fashion and we couldn’t be more thrilled to see the world of fashion magazines acknowledging the importance of this field.

One of Australia’s most respected fashion journalists, Press was the magazine’s features director from 2005 to 2009 and most recently, she held the position of fashion editor-at-large at Australian Marie Claire. A passionate advocate of sustainable fashion, Press is the author of Wardrobe Crisis: How We Went from Sunday Best to Fast Fashion, which will be published in the US in February 2018, endorsed by Fashion Revolution co-founder Orsola de Castro.

Press also presents the Wardrobe Crisis podcast, which explores fashion through the lenses of sustainability, ethics and creativity. Her Series 1 guests include: designer Karen Walker, milliner Stephen Jones, Barney’s creative director Simon Doonan, TOMS founder Blake MyCoskie and scientist Tim Flannery. Series 2 launched on 14 February 2018 with guests that included Kowtow founder Gosia Piatek, KitX designer Kit Willow and Christopher Raeburn.
