VOXFROCK – WHAT WE DO.
We trawl trends from Milan to Melbourne. We plough fashion’s minefield of mixed messages, meet its people, review its news. For you. You are our Vox, you are our Frock, you are our raison d’etre! We post for you.
The Voxfrock team also offers commercial writing services including press releases, copyright-free features and tailored projects for both set fees and word rates based on journalist experience.
WHO WE ARE.
Janice Breen Burns is a highly respected fashion journalist, editor and features writer of more than 30 years experience in metro daily newspapers and more recently, digital media. Voxfrock.com.au is her blogzine loosely based on the variety of content and style of newspaper fashion pages before the global contraction of “old” media.
Mrs. Breen Burns is renowned for her industry knowledge and witty, realistic insights into the role of fashion in everyday life. She is a frequent contributor to workshops and seminars, industry panels, radio and television reports relevant to fashion and its culture. She is listed annually from the inaugural issue of “Who’s Who of Australian Women”, was admitted to the Stonnington Fashion Hall of Fame in 2011, and regularly judges fashion industry-wide and student fashion competitions. Mrs. Breen Burns has also judged the Victoria Racing Club’s Fashions on the Field series during the Melbourne Cup Carnival since 1982 and the Melbourne Racing Club’s fashion competition since the 1990s. In 2013 she was appointed to the board of the Melbourne Fashion Festival, a not-for-profit event that attracts more than 350,00 fans every year.
Mrs. Breen Burns holds a Bachelor Degree, art history, and Graduate Certificate, creative writing, from the University of Melbourne. A book compilation of her popular and long running fashion and culture column Babble On, in The Age newspaper, The Art of Eavesdropping, was published by Penguin in 1996 and excerpts of her journalism have been reproduced in textbooks including for the Victorian Certificate of Education English curriculum.
