Living life well
Fête/Life magazine is an Australian publication that connects with readers in a personal way. Its mission is to inspire them to love the life they have, engage in positive and meaningful relationships with those around them and to make time and space for all the good things around them, for life well-lived.
What might sound easy on paper is difficult to pull off, the difficulty being identifying the essence of things and focusing on its defining features.
Jane Cameron and Annabelle Kerslake – co-founders of Fête/Life magazine – have set out to be advocated for what has become known as the “simple living” movement, a feat they are aiming to achieve with the creation of their idiosyncratic brand.
“We have taken our ethos back to basics, analysed our core values and considered what is really important to ourselves, our readers and followers.”, they say.
Aesthetics rooted in the realm of monochrome and informed by minimalism serve as the foundation upon which Fête/Life magazine has built a construct that feeds off collaborations with well-curated art, brands and businesses from the Southern Hemisphere.
From the horse’s mouth: “Our simple-living approach is about having the clarity to make good choices in every aspect of life – home, nutrition, health, finances, fashion and family. The process of curating products and stories for print has helped us discover what is truly important and how best to offer it to consumers. Simple-living is more about surrounding ourselves with objects of purpose or meaning, choosing to purchase with thought and care and less about leading a stark, minimalistic life. Only when you learn how to tap into what is truly important can you speak across all platforms in an engaging and captivating voice."
Fête Magazine is essentially style porn, yet what makes it stand out from the myriad of other related magazines is its distinct laid-back Australian, authentic feel, lack of pretense and the unique lenses of Annabelle Kerslake and Jane Cameron that give all aspect a unique angle.
A coffee table magazine that inspires.
