Costume is a footnote to culture, and today remains both a changing and eternal form of human expression.

Sydney stylist Jo Bayley based in Sydney is our Fashion Editor. Her weekly column Fashion Elixir appears on Wednesday’s.

Jo believes fashion can be the elixir we all need to take the boredom out of everyday life. And anyone can be fabulous armed with the right tools (shoes, hot dress and iconic handbag!).

Joe travels overseas annually, and visits many Australian ‘hot’ spots throughout the year, reporting on places to know about, where you would like to eat now whether en casual, or about dining in style.
