Otago’s Best Dressed Lecturers

Critic tracked down the lecturers with the hottest threads and awkwardly got them to talk to us about what makes their style so fresh. As any postgrad knows, it's much better to sniff lecturers out and catch them by surprise in the real world - that way they don't have time to ghost your emails or think rationally about what they're agreeing to.   The first victim reminds me of my favourite Hi-Chew candy. They're...

Fashion is the first (and in many cases...

Guest Editorial: An Open Love Letter to Supré

The day that Supré closed down in the Meridian Mall was a sad day for Dunedin. Although I was more of a Jay-Jays kid growing up, I remember going there in my early teenage years and it completely changed me.

You became part of a stampede of prepubescent girls trying to find their latest look for...
