Now an internationally renowned editor, Michal McKay was just 21 when she became fashion and beauty editor of Vogue New Zealand. At that time the magazine was firmly tied to British Vogue with its editor, Sheila Scotter, based in Australia. In the interview, Michal describes being ‘Voguerised’ before leaving London to return home to shape the magazine’s distinctive New Zealand style.
Also screening in the exhibition are some gorgeous fashion parades we’ve found in the film archives from the ’50s and ’60s.
Don’t miss the chance to hear more from Michal McKay at Art After Dark on 21 July when she’ll be talking to curator Claire Regnault about the glamorous world of Vogue New Zealand.
