Chris Kontos

Chris Kontos, Adelaide Fashion Festival Creative Director, designer, black on black devotee and the man who knows South Australia like no other. I mean he helped put it on the map after all. Fashion map that is, calm down kids! So in celebration of all things South Australian, we asked our own Anna, the go to places to visit while visiting our amazing state during the AFF. I mean if anyone knows where the cool kids hang, it’s the man that brought them here.

Kate Davis, DJ, Los Angeles

Los Angeles – a melting pot of art, culture, fashion, music and good vibes, it’s the kind of place where anything goes and everything is within reach. It also happens to be a city where vibes are hidden behind dark windows and inconspicuous buildings. Blink and you will miss the most sought after restaurant or club. Now, we would hate for you to visit the city of Angels and miss out on all the fun so we have found a local to help direct you in the right direction. And we’re not talking celebrity tour bus operator, no. We’re talking resident Nice Guy spinner, DJ Kate Davis.

Naomi and Elena, Bali

Bali. The travel experience which can’t quite be explained in a neat little package. The “Island of the Gods” can be as much a spiritual and cultural experience, as it can be the place to let your hair down. A place where ‘RnR’ can be just as much about rest and relaxation as it can be about rock’n’roll baby! With so much to experience we asked locals and founders to ‘The Dose’, Naomi and Elena to talk us through doing Bali right.

Jacques Burga, Paris

Paris SOCIAL Diary covers the kind of events you daydream of scribbling all throughout your non-existent Smythson diary. Chanel runway show here, Caroline De Maigret interview there – all the while running around the city of style and love looking like you stepped off the pages of a Gucci campaign. Naturally we turned to the man behind the digital magazine to discover the Parisian hot spots you need to know about before your next trip.

Elisa Schenke, Berlin

Now, we will give you a minute to judge us for not having placed Berlin on our itinerary list yet. We would love to insert a legitimate excuse other than all roads lead to Paris… but as the story goes… they really, truly do so we have some ground left to cover. This is where Berlin-based, fashion and marketing student Elisa comes into the picture. Berlin’s rising style blogger talks us through the places to visit during your next stopover.

Samantha Wills, New York City

When it comes to the concrete jungle where dreams are made of (a theory proven by the charming Wills), Samantha’s Instagram account is your go-to city guide. To put it simply, Samantha’s account would have been stalked by Carrie Bradshaw if Instagram had been a thing in the 2000’s…
