MANUKA is a bi-monthly submission based online and print magazine. We are the honey to fashion bees, celebrating fashion and culture around the world.
We give readers a taste of their favorite luxury brands, while introducing them to new emerging designers. We are a vehicle for fusing the best of two worlds - sophistication with edge.
Founded in July 2016, MANUKA was established to give creatives the opportunity to contribute and have their artistic work published for the world to see. We launched our first issue in August 2017, where we showcased the work of talented designers, stylists, make-up artists, hair stylists and contributing photographers from across the world.

Our current issue, The Festive Issue not only celebrates the spirit of Christmas, but also the new year including: Chinese New Year; Valentine’s Day; and everything else you may celebrate in between. Our fabulous festive cover features the stunning Bleta Gashi, shot by MANUKA’s contributor Ralf Eyertt. And if that wasn’t enough, we overload you with non-stop fashion editorials to street trends in Paris with the hottest beauty tips from Clarissa Williams from Australia. We take a sneak peek into the style diary of New York’s stylist, Olga Alarcon’s which also features Regina Joseph, a model, journalist and blogger (also from New York). We uncover the creativity of Laura Popescu, a rising fashion star from Romania; who not only designs, but also works as a model and stylist between Bucharest and Milan. We also get up close and personal with Los Angeles songstress, Leanna Rachel, who now spends most her time in beautiful Bali as a local superstar.

Our last issue, the Fashion Overload, celebrates all things Fashion and Style inspired by Fashion Week around the globe over four glorious weeks. In this issue, you get a Backstage Pass to London Fashion Week, with a front row seat to all the fashion shows. With more than 100-pages dedicated to fashion and beauty, we embrace international fashion for all seasons. Our Trend Report gives fashion addicts chic and edgy high-fashion looks that can transition from runway to real life looks. Our feature story by Claudette Lukasik from examines artificial fragrance versus essential oils in beauty products. We get up-close and personal with international styling guru, Alexandra Osina who talks to us about life as a stylist. In our Art and Culture section, we speak to model and beauty queen, Meseret Geberkristos about her traumatic escape from Ethiopia to Switzerland. We also feature the stunning photographs of Ralf Eyertt, our contributing photographer from Switzerland. Singer/songwriter and contributor, K.ESS takes us into the music world and introduces us to music sensation SZA and reviews the sounds of H.E.R and iconic Miguel. Last, but certainly not least, we celebrate the artistry of Bianca Werneburg in our art series, who will certainly inspire your creative minds with her striking art.
In our first issue, the Cultural Evolution, we celebrated all women and featured raw and honest stories. We got up-close and personal with Swiss model, stylist and fashion designer, Angela Asiana, featured on the cover. We spoke to South Africa’s Anri Pretorius, about modelling her way to the top in London. We also turned the spotlight on British designer, Alexandra Zvi about building an ethical fashion brand, and showcased the early success of Haywire Jewellery, founded by Allegra Lipanje. In our Culture section, we took a look at four global cities including Paris, London, New York and Tokyo. In our Art series, we unlocked the secret behind the success of Australian artist, Lynn Jaanz, and explored music with artist and writer, K.ESS. With over 90-pages dedicated to Fashion, we showcased wearable fashion editorials with 8-pages of Beauty.
