{sesame magazine + an interview}

Lately have been adoring all things Australian, including Sesame, an online fashion magazine from Melbourne that focuses on emerging talents in fashion, illustration, art and music . . .

“I think I’ve always been a bit of a magazine addict,” says Nadia Barbaro, [Sesame's founder]. “I have a ridiculous collection piling up around the house.” Sesame was born three years ago as a print magazine, but Barbaro was soon swayed by the Web. The heart of the site is, of course, Australian fashion, and twice a year, Barbaro plucks the best local designers, artists, and musicians to feature in gorgeous fashion spreads. “It’s pretty girly,” says Barbaro, “Doesn’t every girl want her own magazine?” --
excerpt: Jamie Cooke for Nylon magazine

Issue Seven has just been release and it's all interactivity and animation intermingled with dreamy stills, wood nymphs and rainbows . . . also fun was the chance to answer a few questions with Nadia, who is also a stylist and Sesame's talented creative director:

. . . and to be included in the magazine's Blogs We ♥ category along Lucy from The Design Files and the always fun and fashionable Susanna from Style Bubble; thanks so much to Nadia for being so cool despite my answers arriving nearly too late . . .

Haha, love that Lily Daché quote. So true. Once a woman asks you where you've bought your dress, and the men are all staring at you, I guess you've picked out the right one to wear!
