Leonie Barrie | 15 August 2011


After what feels like a lifetime flying solo here at just-style, but has really just been a matter of weeks, I'm finally pleased to welcome Petah Marian as our new news and insights editor.

Petah joins from just-style's sister title just-food, where she has worked as a senior reporter for the past year. And her track record is impeccable, with several years' experience writing for consumer and business titles in the retail, lifestyle and fashion spheres. 

I know you'll join me in welcoming her to the team, and I know too, that Petah's equally keen to become part of the apparel industry. If you'd like to make contact, click here or mail her at
