Cover Story

style rookies

From high-school student to pop-culture queen – FRANCESCA CARTER examines the Tavi effect

T

avi Gevinson was just 11 when she embarked on the path to becoming a pop-culture phenomenon. Blogging from her laptop in Oak Park, Illinois, Gevinson was not a rock star’s daughter or a child actor, just a self-described pop culture nerd, who had “lately” become “really interested in fashion”. Setting up a camera in her backyard in 2008, Gevinson started taking photos of herself modelling all sorts of eclectic outfits. Posting them on her blog, Style Rookie, with musings on fashion and her latest obsessions – which included anything from a review of Alexander McQueen’s couture collection to her daily struggles with athletics – the tween quickly gained a loyal following, drawing nearly 30,000 readers a day. By the end of that year the designers behind über-cool label Rodarte, sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, sent Gevinson a pair of hand-knitted tights, later inviting her to their New York runway show. John Galliano flew Gevinson to Paris to see his spring Dior 2010 couture show, and Rei Kawakubo, of Comme des Garçons, invited her to Tokyo to attend one his parties. By the time she was 14, Gevinson was writing articles for Harper’s Bazaar, had appeared on the cover of magazines Love, Pop and L’Officiel, and had been profiled by The New Yorker and The New York Times Magazine. She had styled a shoot for BlackBook magazine, acted as a muse and model for Rodarte’s clothing line at Target shops, and partnered with London-based fashion label Borders & Frontiers to design her own T-shirt. “I started Style Rookie at the end of March and by that summer I began to be featured in the press,” says Gevinson, who is on the phone from Rhode Island where she is currently enjoying her summer break before starting her final year of high-school. “At first, most of the press was all about my age and how young I was, but then it slowly turned into positive press about, ‘Hey she’s actually a good writer’. “I think [2008] was a unique time to start a blog, because there was something more pure about it. Bloggers weren’t going to fashion week yet, or being in the front rows, or getting a lot of press, so it felt like this tight-knit community of genuinely passionate people.” Once snubbed by the elitist fashion world for their critical reviews and tiny audiences, fashion bloggers are now important players in a multibillion dollar industry. The most successful make a living from their online popularity through adverts and links to online stores next to their writing. Some blogs have given their owners a springboard to consulting work, writing assignments, speaking engagements, lecturing and related website projects. Gevinson, who has appeared on the Forbes “30 Under 30” list of influential young people in 2011 and 2012, has taken her blog one step further. In September 2011, she launched Rookie – a free online teen magazine, written for, by, and about teenage girls and young women. Rookie has become a youth culture phenomenon, giving young girls a platform to discuss a range of issues – from drugs to heartache, parties to sexual health. 4 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ AUGUST 15, 2013

“It’s hard to explain to people how big rookie is.”

DEPARTMENT OF YOUTH As fashion bloggers set the style agenda around the world, young Melburnians are making waves online.

G

illigan, who has kept a blog since she was a teenager, has created illustrations to accompany Rookie interviews with Sofia Coppola, Emma Watson, Molly Ringwald and Steven Morrissey. Her work has also provided a springboard for a successful career as an illustrator, working on advertising campaigns for American clothing companies Urban Outfitters and Nasty Girl. “In the beginning there were just three illustrators, so we pretty much defined the aesthetic of Rookie,” Gilligan says. “It took my parents ages to understand how massive this all was … The internet is always changing so it’s hard to explain to people how big Rookie is.” Now working in a shared studio in Collingwood, Gilligan believes social media and the web have changed her art. A trawl through her blog reveals an interest in The Golden Girls and vintage clothing, a love of the psychedelic aesthetic of the ’60s and ’70s, and a fascination with Woody Allen. She also loves music, especially “daggy” radio stations such as Magic 1278, and is a back-up singer in a local band called Pamela. “Blogs are such great things for young people,” she says. “It was so vital for me in discerning my tastes and what I was interested in growing up. It’s really awesome that blogs and Tumblr and other social media sites are products for youth. It means we’re not being told by somebody what we should like, we decide it ourselves.” Later this month, Gilligan will join Gevinson when the American teenager hosts a special Rookie Day as part of the Melbourne Writers Festival. The event, open exclusively to teenage girls, will also feature festival director Katie Williams, writer Jessica Alice, and members of the dance community No Lights No Lycra, to name just a few. Gevinson will also deliver a keynote speech at The Athenaeum, in the already sold-out event Tavi’s World. Gilligan, who communicates with Gevinson via email, says she’s thrilled by the prospect of finally meeting her boss. “We’re going to have a lunch at Hanging Rock, and dress up in white dresses like they did in the film … I’m excited to show Tavi my home town.” \ fcarter@theweeklyreview.com.au » Melbourne Writers Festival, August 22 to September 1. www.mwf.com.au

Maxxie

» www.maxxieblog.com In a sea of fashion blogs, Maxxie – with its landscape photographs and preppy fashion choices – stands out. Growing up in Torquay, Max McDougall started blogging at 16, as a way of connecting with the fashion world. “Most of my outfit inspirations come from unknown people on the street, or trends from my favourite designers on the runway,” he says. “I like to take small elements of other people’s style, and wear it in my own way.” McDougall, 18, who is completing a diploma in fashion business at the Melbourne Fashion Institute, has worked with brands such as ASOS, Julius Marlow, Gillette and Casio. \

K is for Kani

» www.kisforkani.com During last year’s Melbourne spring racing carnival, many style gurus traded in their hats and fascinators for beautiful floral crowns, many of them designed by fashion enthusiast and law commerce student Connie Cao. Since 2010, Cao has been posting her wardrobe choices on her blog, K is for Kani. “I love fashion design and really wanted to pursue a creative career,” she says. Cao’s blog is like looking through a moving kaleidoscope of colour and pattern. Her meticulous styling has led to work with ASOS and Topshop.\

How Two Live

(SuPPlIeD)

“I have this theory that teenagers are just exaggerations of human beings,” Gevinson says. “It’s like we feel everything for the first time, and everything is so amped up. I feel like what we talk about on Rookie is pretty universal and that’s why adults can relate to it, because I’m often told those feelings don’t go away.” Gevinson was inspired by Sassy, an American alternative teen magazine – based loosely on Australia’s own Dolly – which folded in 1996, the year Gevinson was born. “When I first found issues of Sassy, I thought, why isn’t there something like this now,” Gevinson says. “It was so honest and talked about things that were relevant to teenagers and it was interesting. It wasn’t about things like diets and workouts. I was shocked at how much it resonated with me, even though it’s now like 20 years old.” Sassy’s founding editor, Jane Pratt, initially nurtured the online venture, and within six days of its launch, Rookie had clocked up 1 million page views. Each month, Rookie focuses on a specific theme, which Gevinson develops with her editorial director Anaheed Alani – a former New York Times Magazine fact-checker. The e-zine is updated five days a week, three times a day – after school, around dinner time, and before bed – to fit in with Gevinson’s school day. There are interviews with celebrities, DIY articles, fashion spreads and advice columns such as the regular “Ask a Grown Man”, in which the likes of Mad Men’s Jon Hamm and Thom Yorke from Radiohead answer reader’s questions. They are currently planning the second Rookie Yearbook, due out in September. “I have all these different worlds and aesthetics in my head and I just try to pull one out and see if it fits with the magazine,” says Gevinson. Rookie has about 80 contributors, from all parts of the world, and ranging in age from 15 to 50. Among them is Melbourne-based artist Minna Gilligan, 22, who was one of Gevinson’s first recruits. While studying at Victorian College of the Arts, Gilligan contributed a weekly collage during Rookie’s first year. “I was really into art at high school but I wasn’t a great drawer,” says Gilligan. “But I’ve always been really into making zines and blogging and doing collages. So when Rookie asked for applications, I put one in and they got something like 3000. I then got an email from Tavi saying they would love to have me, which was literally the most exciting thing ever.”

Celebrating its first birthday this month, How Two Live is a fashion blog created by sisters Jess, 21, and Stef Dadon, 25. They established the blog as a way of sharing their wardrobes with each other when Stef went to live in Paris for six months. “We’ve always lived together, and that was the first time we had spent a big block of time apart,” Stef says. In the past year, they have shot campaigns for labels including Paint it Red, Princess Polly, Shakuhachi and Mimco, and are currently designing a shoe range for Windsor Smith. \

Ever wondered why older bottles of wine occasionally have a layer of sediment just below the neck? They’re actually tannins and Chapel Hill chief winemaker Michael Fragos explains that the process starts as the wine matures in an oak barrel. “With contact with air in the barrel, the tannin molecules start gelling together and polymerising. So where you’ve got these small tannin molecules and air coming in slowly, the tannins start building bigger and bigger tannin strands. “When you have an old wine and the tannins get bigger and bigger with bottle maturation, there’s a certain time when the tannins get to a certain size and precipitate out. That’s what causes the crust and deposit in older wines.” \ Online Only » Ben Thomas’ weekly wine selections

fooD \ kendall hill reviews the town mouse

O

n the doorstep of The Town Mouse, a newish arrival to the burgeoning off-Lygon strip in Carlton, a flagstone beckons passersby. “Come in for good times,” it promises. No false advertising here. Inside, the restaurant is compact and tiled and looks like a bar, but The Town Mouse can be almost anything you want it to be. Bar. Restaurant. Pre-theatre snack. Post-cinema nightcap this is and nibbles. Sunday lunch. Special occasion habitslap-up feast. forming I can imagine doing all of the above here, food and never being disappointed. The space was most recently home to French fine diner Embrasse, where I remember sitting in hushed surrounds and marvelling at the produce and precision involved in Nicolas Poelart’s culinary art. But it was never what you’d call fun. The Town Mouse takes itself much less seriously. The floor crew are here to show you a good time and go out of their way to do so. Sly jokes, disarming honesty, winning wine service and the ability to make all feel welcome are just a few of their talents. Unfortunately they can’t do much about the shrieking noise levels from the diabolical combo of tiled walls and terrazzo floors. Bring an ear trumpet if you have one handy. You may need it on a full-house Friday night. Central to the good times is a wine list compiled by talented sommelier Lachlan Barber. He has cherry(grape-?) picked plenty of fascinating drops from around the globe – often biodynamic or wild ferment or otherwise avant-garde. There’s an Alsatian white with the unpronounceable name of Mittnacht Gyotaku, a blend of riesling, Not so funny: gewürtztraminer, pinot gris and pinot blanc that goes Heirloom kales down like nectar. And I love the sound of Patrick (DArriAn Sullivan’s Breakfast Wine but it seems a little early, TrAynor) even for me. Dave Verheul’s cooking is the other key ingredient. It would make even the most jaded diner sit up and pay attention. Here’s a man whose idea of a bar snack is a mini profiterole stuffed with creamy-sour goat’s cheese, showered in caraway salt and thyme, and plonked on a drizzle of their own rooftop honey. Parts of the concept might be familiar but it feels completely original. Likewise the “heirloom kales”, a dish that sounds hilarious when described in full by staff but one mouthful is enough to wipe the smile off your face. It’s a plate of deep-fried cabbage leaves sitting on three types of kale and some “sprouted” rye and red quinoa. “We activate it ourselves,” the waitress says, coming over all Pete Evans. There’s also an egg in the mix, poached at precisely 62.5 degrees, and the lot is spumed with a foam made from Comté cheese, the king of gruyère. The foam

makes everything taste spectacular; eyes pop open with pleasure. Verheul’s school prawns are up there with the city’s best. Here they’re dusted in semolina and deep fried to the point where their shells become pleasantly chewy crusts. They’re doused in sesame salt and arranged around a central pool of garlic and saffron rouille. We clean the plate with our wet fingers. (On a subsequent visit I’m urging my date to have the kale – “you’ll love that” – and ordering the school prawns without a moment’s hesitation. This is habit-forming food.) Nothing I’ve eaten here is bad but some plates are not as good. Under the menu’s “raw” section, the shaved calamari formed into rosettes and teamed with blobs of oyster cream, dill and fermented apple juice is fragrant but not my thing. The cream seems a bit split, perhaps from the acid of the apple. Triangles of crisp, semolina-caked beef cheek are a tad too crisp, the meat inside too dry, but they’re saved by a white soy cream and a gutsy, gorgeous paste of black garlic.

The 12-hour lamb makes a lavish Sunday lunch. It costs $62 for 900 grams of fat-crusted shoulder that’s been slow cooked in a water bath with thyme, garlic, bay leaves, olive oil and lemon juice (I hope you’re taking notes) and then pan-roasted for another 25 minutes to give it a healthy glow and get the juices flowing. It’s served with a healthy side of charred cos and lemon zest, and an unhealthy side of tahini. A plate of roasted red cabbage stuffed with prunes and apple and drenched in melted parmesan, tips the scales to pure gluttony. If the roast and cabbage doesn’t do you in, the ricotta doughnuts just might. The size of chicken nuggets, they’re coated in sugar and cinnamon, stuffed with gooey ricotta, fried to a deep tan and then arranged on a mandarin cream fragrant with fennel. It’s pretty obvious why The Town Mouse has received only glowing critical reviews since opening in March. Add one more voice to that approving chorus. \ khill@theweeklyreview.com.au To rEaD MorE rEviEws

MELBOURNE WRITERS FESTIVAL OPENING KEYNOTE: BORIS JOHNSON Boris Johnson has a familial lineage perhaps more illustrious than the British royal family. His artistic, political, journalistic and royal connections are too many and varied to list. But he didn’t rest upon his laurels, instead embarking on a distinguished career of his own, starting as a journalist at The Times. He was editor of The Spectator between 1999 and 2008, before entering politics as a conservative. The now Lord Mayor of London will open the Melbourne Writers Festival with a keynote address reflecting on his commitment to writing and the value of literature. He’ll also explore his literary influences, the craft of writing and his belief in the power of literature to transform, inspire and delight. ■ Melbourne Town Hall, Swanston Street, Melbourne. August 22, 6.30pm. 9650 6467.

Tickets cost $21.50. ■ Deakin Edge, Federation Square, Melbourne. August 23, 11.45am. 9650 6467.

LUCy KnISLEy celebrated novel Open City is also an immigrant. The novel’s half-Nigerian, half-German protagonist walks around New York, or “open city”, meeting an assortment of characters, many of them migrants themselves, all the while thinking about art, critical theory and music. While the novel is broken into separate chapters, the text is written in a single unbroken paragraph. This brevity of style will be a focus of Cole’s talk at the Melbourne Writers Festival, which will also touch on such topics as the Twittersphere, the future of writing and storytelling, and where to next for the novel.

ILLUSTRATOR IN RESIDENCE: LUCY KNISLEY During the festival, some of the world’s leading illustrators will draw live for three hours in the Atrium, Federation Square. First up is New York comic artist Lucy Knisley, whose work is often a running commentary on her life, much of which is centred on food. If her books are anything to go by, she’s eaten well all her life. Her drawings are fluid, playful and offer an insight into the fabulous and enviable world of a life and memory association through food – or Venetian croissants and McDonald’s fries, to be precise. ■ The Atrium, Federation Square, Melbourne.
