British Vogue and Vogue Australia collaboration

Last December, British Vogue travelled to the other side of the world for Vogue Australia’s 60th anniversary, and to capture the S/S ’20 collections against a backdrop of the continent’s land and seascapes.

When the trip’s arrangements were made, few could have anticipated the severity of the coming season’s bushfires or the devastation they would cause. What began as a celebration of fashion became an ode to one of the world’s most magnificent countries, and to hope and action, too, says Vogue.

Before it launched as a standalone title in its own right in 1959, Vogue Australia debuted as a supplement to British Vogue. This is the first time since Vogue Australia launched as a standalone magazine that British Vogue has collaborated with the title.

Edward Enninful, Editor-in-Chief of British Vogue commented, "The collaboration between British Vogue and Vogue Australia is a historic first and I knew I wanted to do a fashion story about nature, and that I wanted the pictures to capture a duet between the girl and her surroundings. I wanted to invert the normal procedure with a fashion story: this time, the landscapes would dictate the clothes; the landscapes would dictate the pictures."
