Denizen was built around the inherent philosophy of celebrating the best of the best, shining a light on those dedicated to a particular cause and drawing attention to notable up-and-comers across a range of industries.
Aiming to lift people up and keep our readers abreast of the seemingly endless pool of talent we have on our doorstep, we have never been (nor do we ever intend on being) a platform that criticises or passes judgement.
Denizen’s Winter issue unveils the Denizen Hospo Heroes presented by American Express winners, runners up and top ten of each of the award categories — as voted by you — our food-savvy, enthusiastic readers. Once again we celebrate and honour the dedicated people who keep us satiated and drive our hospitality industry forward.
Elsewhere, we delve into awe-inspiring design, the best forward-looking fashion, the newest trends and treatments to know about in wellbeing and a comprehensive cultural guide on what to read, watch and listen to while tucked up on the couch.
We also garner exclusive access to inspiring people including renowned interior designer Virginia Fisher (who delivers a fascinating masterclass), former ‘it’ girl and prolific writer Garance Doré, lauded radio DJ and Apple Music’s Global Creative Director, Zane Lowe, and rugby great-turned-entrepreneur Dan Carter.
And with the forthcoming season likely to see you heading south to our own version of wonderland, we have curated a concise edit on the very best places to wine and dine in the Queenstown region this season.
