Reductress

bethsarah1

 When we first started reading Reductress, we LOL’d, then we became totally entranced by their satirical over-the-top takedown of fashion, entertainment, and all things ‘women’s interest.’ We caught up with Reductress editors (and comedians) Sarah Pappalardo and Beth Newell to talk about serious journalism, feminist onions, and why integrity is basically stupid.—Chris Rellas

Finders Keepers

AmyKateHSBW-1

Meet the brains (and major babes) behind one of our favorite Aussie labels, Finders Keepers. Designers Kate Anderson and Amy Hicks share their sartorial offerings in the form of structured silhouettes and stand-out prints (think watercolored Miami skylines and kaleidoscopic florals) mixed with unexpected details like metal and mesh. Here, the dream team gives us the inside scoop on how the brand was born, its signature style, and the most embarrassing things hiding in their closets.

Inside In, Inside Out

Final_4

Fabliha and Tasfia Reza are the 20-year-old Australian twins behind Inside In, Inside Out. Science students by day, the twins use their blog as an in-your-face creative outlet. Their look is experimental, combining mixed prints with bold color. Fabliha describes her style as “whimsical and quirky” while she says her sister’s style is “edgier, with cleaner lines and more monochromatic and neutral” pieces. Their blog is about more than just style, though. They love cooking and traveling (they’ve recently been to Spain, France, and Turkey, amongst other places) too, and integrate it all into their dizzingly colorful (in a good way) blog.

Meet The Mushpit

mush-cover

If you’re bored of stuffy, self-important style magazines, then you really need to get up on The Mushpit. This sassy London fanzine is an ode to the glittery glory days of the early Naughties, when pop music was enjoyed without irony and choker necklaces were still a thing. With crop top-heavy fashion spreads, tongue-in-cheek relationship advice, and dreamy real-boy centrefolds, The Mushpit is redefining the modern fashion magazine from its Dalston, East London HQ. Editors Char Roberts and Bertie Brandes (both 22) gave us the scoop.—Phoebe Lovatt

The Baby Bun

If you’ve ever tried to find a middle ground between a full bun and letting your hair fall naturally, look no further. We got Ashlee Rose to walk us through creating The Baby Bun. It’s a sort of sleek, sort of messy hairdo that’s still subtle, but done-up enough to show that hey, you did put some effort in today.
