It’s essential reading for locals, anyone planning a trip to Tāmaki Makaurau, and food fans everywhere, and just a taste of what will be served up by the award-winning Viva team for subscribers.
Helmed by managing editor Amanda Linnell, the respected Viva editorial team informs and inspires readers on the good things in life, reflects on what’s shaping tastes now, and spotlights new ideas – all with the intelligence, wit and flair that have made Viva a singular voice in local lifestyle media.
Viva’s influential creative and fashion director Dan Ahwa leads the fashion department, drawing from years of knowledge, industry connections and creativity to distill trends, news and innovation from New Zealand and around the world, guiding readers on what to wear now, where to get it, and how to express themselves.
Leading beauty editor Lucy Slight translates the buzzwords and jargon, revealing all you need to know about skincare, makeup, wellness and more.
On the food front, households around the country turn to recipe editor Angela Casley for what to cook each week, while dining out editor Jesse Mulligan’s discerning restaurant reviews are a weekly must-read, revealing where to eat and what to order. Johanna Thornton and Maggie Wicks share delicious discoveries, seasonal fare and in-the-know destinations, and Dr Jo Burzysnka reports on the world of wine.
