Since its relaunch in early 2022, InStyle Australia has been receiving accolades from both media and critics for its fresh approach to digital-led storytelling. Editor-in-chief Justine Cullen and the new owners, Truth North Media, have set a new course for the magazine, emphasizing a commitment to celebrating leaders and game changers.
The magazine’s new ethos, ‘Everybody’s In,’ focuses on recognizing and celebrating individuals who epitomize style today and shape the look of tomorrow. Justine Cullen emphasizes their dedication to inclusive storytelling and highlighting talents with substance and a message.
In line with this mission, InStyle chose to honor the upcoming Voice to Parliament referendum, scheduled for October 14, as a moment of significance. They invited six Indigenous artists to design their own InStyle covers as part of the YES campaign, shedding light on the importance of the referendum and offering unique perspectives on this landmark vote.
The artists involved, including Thea Anamara Perkins, Jarni McGuire, Janelle Burger, Matthew “Melnunnie” Brettschneider, Maddy Connors, and Michelle Jackson, each contributed distinct cover designs. Together, they aim to spark meaningful conversations and raise awareness about historical injustices, reconciliation, and the journey towards a more inclusive society.
InStyle Australia continues to lead the way in celebrating diversity and amplifying voices that matter, demonstrating that fashion and art can be powerful tools for social change and awareness.
