With great excitement, Vogue Australia announced Clare Press as their newest team member last week, resuming the role of sustainability editor-at-large.

The announcement comes just in time for the release of the much anticipated March issue of Vogue Australia. The latest issue, featuring cover girl and guest editor Emma Watson, will have fashion sustainability at the centre of its pages.

In last week’s announcement, Vogue Australia shared Press’ eagerness to commence her role as Sustainability Editor-at-Large, taking charge on leading Vogue—and the Australian fashion industry—in sustainable change.

“The biggest change to happen in my lifetime is already happening: climate change. Global warming and extreme weather projections are scary, but I feel hopeful – there are so many inspiring people, particularly younger women, emerging in the green movement,” says Press.


Press, who will commence her Vogue status a-s-a-p, has an impressive resumé including her role as Marie Claire Fashion Editor, a Columnist for InStyle, renowned Author (with book number 3 set to be released end of this year!), and most notably; her role as former Features Editor at none other than Vogue Australia.
