Inspired by the “quiet radicals”, T Australia’s ninth issue celebrates the visionaries turning odds into opportunities, trade dream jobs for financial risks and count their failures as blessings.
Our cover story (page 56), written by Jen Nurick, profiles six visionaries who’ve defied the doubters, including artist and creator of our cover, Vincent Fantauzzo, Great Wrap’s Julia and Jordy Kay, the co-founder and creative director of Park, Sam Davy, founder of Who Give’s A Crap, Simon Griffiths, and founder and CEO of Culture Amp, Didier Elzinga.
The rest of the issue is a vibrant exploration of grit, resilience, and the Australians not taking ‘no’ for a final answer. Columnist and activist Bri Lee experiments with the consequences of saying yes, exploring the vulnerability of being seen for your truest form of self (“Sitting Target”), and Victoria Pearson speaks with a cohort of pioneers fighting for the wine industry’s future (“Glass Half Full”). Stylist Virginia van Heythuysen conjures the Wild West and a sugared confection of diamonds, sorbets and cookies (“Before The Sun Sets” and “Sweet Dreams”).
Tom Lazarus sits down with Conrad Sewel, as the musician reflects on his son, a dream band and a new album that mines the influences of his childhood (“Soul Searching”), Fred Siggins tries the minimal-waste cocktails bringing root-to-stem cooking principles to the bar top (“Not So Wasted”) and photographer Trent Davis Bailey captures a new take on corsages (“Say It With Flowers”).
There’s fashion, interiors, timepieces and design – all told with T Australia’s signature voice. We hope you enjoy this very special issue.
