Working in The Daily Telegraph newsroom, I mix with loads of different personalities everyday and one of my faves is Fashion Journo and Style Superstar (yes they deserve capitals cause she’s amazing), Miss Elle Halliwell.
From co-hosting her own radio show with SydCon’s Jonathan Moran (JMo), to appearing on Weekend Today every Sunday and hob nobbing from front row fashion shows all over the world (I think she’s in NYC at the moment), I’m surprised she found the time to sit down with me and chat all things food and fashion in Sydney. But she did and here it is. Enjoy, LM x x
