In The City
Thank you to our loyal readers for making
In the City Canberra's most read monthly/quarterly
magazine. We hope to continue inspiring you with
fresh stories and an innovative perspective on the
delights our cosmopolitan city has to offer.
Ireally wanted our summer edition of In the City to
be brimming with the joy the festive season evokes.
Who is better poised on the celebratory precipice
than creative director of the Canberra Centenary,
Robyn Archer? To say working with Robyn on our
cover shoot was fun would be an understatement;
the lady oozes charm and charisma. The morning of the
shoot will forever be known in my mind as 'My date with
Robyn Archer'. In light of both our manic schedules I
thought I'd save time and offered my services to chauffer
Ms Archer around. I zipped over to the city in my little red
Yaris, with Carly Rae Jepsen pumping on the radio and I
ushered Robyn and her belongings into the car amidst the
pouring rain. She was in great spirits and began telling me
about all her recent travels and social commitments for that
day. It was jam-packed so I was glad she could squeeze us
in. We chatted like old friends about the local fashion and
arts scene, the likes of designers such as Luke Chiswell
whose work we both admired. Back at The Canberra Times
studio we had carefully crafted a backdrop for our cover
photo shoot representing a giant gift -- through the peephole
a scenic view of Canberra unfurling. Robyn jumped right
into set. She posed and performed her socks off, ushering
the potential (albeit imaginary) audience in. We had '60s
diner music playing and boy did she bust out the moves.
We were treated to her rendition of Gangnam Style,
photographs of which will remain in our private In the City
'frivolities vault'. Two interviews and sitting for a sketch by
renowned cartoon artist Ian Sharpe later our time was up. I
quickly whisked Robyn over to her next appointment at the
Canberra Theatre. We hugged and air kissed and promised
another rendezvous in the near future.
The rest of our summer edition took shape days
thereafter with our Bar Hopping (p31) and Off the record
(p22) shoots taking place with the likes of the hugely popular
DJs Jaytech and The Aston Shuffle. Our epic end of year
fashion shoot aptly titled A Summer Celebration features
some of our city's cool, sexy young things and it's safe to say
we went out with a bang, pulling out all the stops for this
visual treat we hope you enjoy.
