Anticipating Autumn: With Megan Bedford

Megan Bedford is Features Editor at Fashion Quarterly magazine. She's one of my favorite people to talk fashion with become not only does she absolutely know her stuff both locally and overseas, she also approaches the topic with a sense of humor and realism.

What aesthetic are you being drawn to with regards to your own wardrobe and way of dressing now cold weather is imminent?
Since Fashion Week last year I've been waiting for the cold weather to arrive so I can get into all the leather we saw back then. In particular, the leather pants from Lonely Hearts, Juliette Hogan's black leather collar, and Workshop have done a really good version of a classic leather biker jacket with supple leather that's so soft.

What pieces have you bought / want to buy for autumn/winter? (locally and internationally)
Becasue I'm obsessed I've also just bought some amazing leather leggings from Sabatini which I'm planning to wear with a oversized slouchy black knit sweater from Ruby, and theres a super-sheer shirt coming up from Moochi that i'm pretty tempted to pick up, unless I get an Equipment one first. Apart from all the black the other thing I'm super excited for is a red wool coat with gold stud buttons from Kate Sylvester, it's incredible. In, fact I really like the whole range from Kate this season, the femininty paired with hard stud detailing, it's so modern. If I could even remotely pull off a twin set, I'd be getting the lemon yellow one.

Any dream pieces from international designers? 
If I could afford it I'd be buying pretty much everything from Givenchy. It's my favourite international label right now, mainly because I love Riccardo Tisci's hard/soft contradictions and the prints and texture combos are above and beyond. Its always darkly beautiful, even in blush pink.
What cool-weather basics do you rely on? 
As for weather appropriate, I've just been in Queenstown and although it sounds terrible I think I'm going to have to buy a North Face puffa for my return at Easter. So practical and warm. Workshop have the best black cable scarves and beanies this season too.
Any bargains / epic scores? 
For cheapies I've just seen a sample of leopard print jeans coming into Glassons soon that I'll definitely be getting a pair of.


  1. I've been a casual reader of your blog for a while now but all your original content lately (especially the anticipating autumns) has made me a daily reader. It's awesome! Actually everything you have been posting this year has been great! Just wanted to let you know you're efforts are definitely appreciated by the anonymous blogosphere - even if we don't comment to say it all the time.
