Woven into the DNA of Denizen, is a desire to celebrate the success of New Zealanders who have not only dared to dream big but have pursued those dreams with dedication, passion and persistence. People who have sought out their own ideas of ‘happy ever after’ with fearlessness and fortitude. Hannah O’Neill is one such person. The cover star of our Spring Issue is a ballerina of international acclaim, and has been quietly working her way up the ranks of the prestigious Paris Opera Ballet, recently achieving étoile status — the top of the top of the ballet world writ large.
O’neill’s inspiring cover story sets the tone for our Spring Issue, a magazine filled with interesting people across gastronomy, design, fashion and culture. From our interview with renowned chef, Michael Meredith (who unveils the concept of his new restaurant venture), to a deep dive into the life and career of esteemed author Witi Ihimaera, to an exclusive talk with facialist to-the-stars, Melanie Grant, there is a litany of inspiring individuals in this issue, promising to carry you into spring with a renewed sense of hope and optimism for the future.
Our fashion and design pages are filled with everything to keep your wardrobes and homes looking sleek and stylish for the season ahead. While our culture section delivers a comprehensive line up of everything to read, watch and listen to over the coming months.
If it’s escapism you seek, look no further than our Navigator pages, this issue is dedicated to the very best of Paris. If you’re one of the lucky ones heading to the City of Light in the next few months, you’re going to want to consult our guidebook on where to stay, where to eat, drink and be merry, and the best places to get your cultural fix.
And if, while you are perusing our pages, you see something you particularly like, keep an eye out for our dedicated QR codes, positioned in the corner of almost every page. By simply scanning the code with your phone camera and clicking on the link, you will be taken directly to our curated edit of shoppable pieces and stories from the magazine.
