Celenie Seidel – Fashionista Foodie

As the Consultant & Forecaster for Yasmin Sewell Limited, Celenie Seidel makes the perfect Fashionista Foodie as she travels the world to catch the latest trends in fashion and food. We interviewed Celenie to discover her journey to becoming a globetrotting fashionista. Tell us how you started your career in Fashion? At the very beginning I started out with part-time retail jobs and assisting stylists during Melbourne’s fashion festivals, while at university. I studied Fashion Design and then Fashion Journalism as I was keen to eventually get into fashion publication / magazines. To date, publication isn’t actually the path I’ve taken, but I did end up working for a luxury e-commerce company owned by Condé Nast… so I guess it relates?! You obviously have an incredible eye for style, what would be your advice for other aspiring Fashionista’s the world over? The industry has more competition than ever on many levels, especially living in the age of ‘the influencer’, where your professional currency is no longer necessarily linked to what qualifications or experience you have. …

Manoj Dias – Wellness Within

As a co-founder of Australia’s first multi-disciplinary drop-in meditation studio, A-Space in Melbourne, Manoj Dias embodies wellness everyday. Having learned from many of the great spiritual leaders of our time, Manoj hopes his studio and teachings will help others to ‘trade mania for pause’, and work towards wellness within for a more meaningful life. You have an incredible concept with the A-Space offering. Can you tell us how this came about? Like most stories worth telling, mine was unexpected.  Since meeting co-founder Josh Lynch, about a year and a half ago, together we’ve been running meditation and mindfulness workshops and programs, then we decided (with no money) at the end of last year to open up Australia’s first multi-disciplinary meditation studio. There were a variety of driving forces behind opening the studio, but we really wanted to see if we could answer this question: Can you slow down, be calm and stay connected in a fast-paced city like Melbourne? We know personally, anecdotally and through research that meditation and mindfulness, as practices, can help us …

Alejandro Saravia – Man Made

Alejandro Saravia, Chef of CHE & Pastuso, is our Man Made ambassador. Known for introducing Peruvian’s bold and flavoursome cuisine to Australia and sharing his passion for Latin American cuisine, we interviewed Alejandro to discover his trade secrets in perfecting perfect Peruvian dish. Tell us how you started your career as a chef? I have been exposed to good food from a very early age being the oldest grand child, helping my grandmother in the kitchen peeling broad beans or peas and then cooking with her. Being in her kitchen was always like an adventure, starting early in the morning with a trip to the local market to buy fresh ingredients. My grandmother has managed to establish a great relationship with most of the market vendors so it was an amazing place to learn how to choose your ingredients and when was the best time to source them. Following my grandmother’s passion for good food and hospitality I decided to study to be a chef at Le cordon Bleu in Lima which, at that time, was …

From Melbourne Australia to Grand Central Terminal New York, Cargo Crew arrived on the international stage at none other than world-renowned Nordic restauranteur Claus Meyer’s brand new 5,000 square foot eatery, Great Northern Food Hall. We were thrilled to be selected to outfit the Great Northern Food Hall crew with uniforms that compliment the venue’s abundant Nordic flavour. Famous for co-founding and co-owning Noma in Denmark, which holds two Michelin stars, as well as launching the New Nordic Cuisine movement, the Great Northern Food Hall is Claus Meyers first US venture. Set in Grand Central Terminal’s iconic Vanderbilt Hall, the Great Northern Food Hall comprises five distinct food pavilions and a bar. Each concept celebrates Nordic roots with a focus on pristine seasonal produce harvested from the New York region. “The idea behind Great Northern Food Hall has been to come up with a program that reflects where we are as well as where we come from, all the while being accessible to all, serving food with the textures and flavours we love,” explained Claus Meyer. “That …
