Kellie Hush has held the title of Editor-in-chief of Harper’s BAZAAR Australia since 2012. She is responsible for the BAZAAR brand across all platforms — print, digital, events and social media. With more than 20 years’ experience in the Australian and luxury fashion market, Hush is one of the most influential magazine editors in Australia with Harper’s BAZAAR winning Fashion Magazine of the Year at the MPA Awards in 2015.
Before joining BAZAAR, Hush was the editor-in-chief of GRAZIA Australia and fashion editor of The Sydney Morning Herald. She is also a regular fashion commentator on television, radio, in print media and a published author.
Hush is currently Deputy Chair of the newly formed Australian Fashion Chamber and a judge for the International Woolmark Prize and the VAMFF National Designer Award. Hush is also a director on the board of the Royal Hospital for Women Foundation. In 2015 Hush launched BAZAAR in Bloom, a glamorous charity event supported by the Australian fashion industry, to raise funds for the RHWF Fertility and Research Centre. In February 2017 phase one of the centre opened in Randwick, Sydney.
Kellie will be bringing her expertise along to The 21st Women in Leadership Summit running in Melbourne in July.
The journey to top management very rarely follows a linear path. Often, stepping into your dream role requires a few lateral movements and further leadership development first. Kellie will explore the balance of patience, determination and deliberately positioning yourself for promotion.
