The Adelaidian is a blog run by Kristen Byass and Melissa Zahorujko that aims to bring you the latest food, fashion and lifestyle updates. We cover everything from runway shows and restaurant launches to event coverage and product reviews.

Having recently moved from Adelaide, Australia, to London, The Adelaidian will be offering fashion and lifestyle news from a fresh perspective. We aim to promote designers/businesses from Australia in the UK and vice versa, strengthening international relations in the fashion and lifestyle industry. The website will also see an increase in travel blogging and vlogging.

The Adelaidian welcomes submissions and contributing writers to the team! If you’re an ambitious soul and wish to become a contributing writer, please visit our Contact Page or contact us via email: kristenandmel@theadelaidian.net.au.
