Jenna Clarke is entertainment and lifestyle editor at WA Today, fashionista extraordinaire and espresso martini lover. I caught up with Jenna to find out what she’s loving in her life.
You’re known for your unique style – what inspires your amazing fashion sense?
At the risk of sounding cliché everything inspires me. Travel, films, books, my mood, the weather, the Pinterest pages of Russian millionaires, fashion bloggers from everywhere from Harlem to Helsinki and the emerging coolness that is Aussie street style.
Which five people (dead or alive) would you love to invite to a dinner party?
- My late grandmother, Violet
- Isabella Blow
- Candace Bushnell
- Hillary Clinton
- Tina Fey
Describe your ultimate day out in Perth?
I love a late breakfast on Beaufort Street followed by a long leisurely wander around the bookshelves at Planet Books then meandering down to the Beaufort Street Merchant for a glass of Tempranillo and calling it a day at Luxe with a sloe gin sour or espresso martini.
If I’m not doing that you’ll find me elbow deep inside the William Street boutiques including Rummage and all the other nooks and crannies that are filled with great vintage finds.
Then I’ll pop across town to Claremont which, to me, represents the new age creative hub thanks to Poppy Lissiman’s Addition store, Zara Bryson and Josie Clough establishing It’s Now Cool headquarters there.
With Perth Fashion Festival just around the corner, what are you most looking forward to? Who are your favourite WA designers?
I’m really looking forward to Garth Cook taking the sensible (and profit spinning) approach and showing a combination of his spring/summer looks with his autumn/winter and resort collections which are already in stores.
I’m also looking forward to seeing our great WA fashion bloggers being given the opportunity to show us their style chops at the Restyle on the Runway show.
NEWSFLASH! I’m now on Facebook, come over and say hi at Absolute Amy.0
