Keep Up with Fashion, Food and Health
Did you ever look out your classroom window and imagine a different scene to what was before you? Maybe even a different you.
Many of us recall those senior years and the pressure to complete and succeed at school and forge a clear path and often traditional route to the future. But as we also know, that path can have many twists and unlikely turns which reveal unexpected surprises, most of all to ourselves. But that's what makes it exciting, right?
Brisbane designer, Amelia Scott, shares a glimpse into the path she has ventured on since leaving school in Brisbane, which led her to the imaginative and international world of design through the release of her own first fashion editorial journal, Her Next Move.
Amelia describes Her Next Move as "a creative outlet to showcase fashion, creative ventures, extraordinary food, captivating travel that ignites imagination and a love of life."
I couldn't wait to open Issue 1 (Winter 2020) to see what the delightfully enigmatic Amelia had created and pleasingly, I wasn't disappointed.
Peeling back the chic duck egg blue cover takes the reader into a series of fashionable photos images and stories about exotic locations, delicious food, health tips and historic pieces about design. There are even some recipes at the back (including Frank Prisinzano's spaghetti limone) to help you create your own healthy, culinary masterpieces at home. So, while I expected the journal to have a high dose of high fashion, it was so much more.
The images are simply beautiful, capturing some of the world's most stellar locations such as a local New South Wales farm stay. As well as great pictures, the stories are deeply reflective, personal and revealing by a young woman coming to understand herself and her passions.
My favourite section of the journal was the feature piece on vintage tennis dresses of the past. In doing so, Amelia pays tribute to the work of Ted Tingling, who was the undisputed king of tennis fashion. It reminds us of a time when short, white, tennis "outfits" were more about style on the court to elegantly face your opponent. They are in stark contrast to the tight lycra, body-hugging crop tops and activewear of today's sports apparel.

My Conclusion Her Next Move gives voice to what one young Brisbane woman sees around her, feels and dreams. I, for one, cannot wait to see what Amelia's next move will be and for the next quarter's release.
To check our more, head to www.hernextmove.com.au where you can purchase your own copy for $19.99 and future editions for a dose of design excellence.
When she is not producing the journal, Amelia can be found managing and creating enticing flavours and delectable ice-cream at her family's boutique store in Brisbane called Miss Sophia's Gelateria in Kedron. So I guess, whichever way she turns, Amelia Scott is surrounded by imaginative ventures and designing her own, unique path and future.
