Here at Margot we’re all about showing your roots (but obviously not your hair roots, have some self-respect). Launched in February 2018 our website is currently run by the head Wellington-based narcissist, and with contributions from our correspondents.
If you haven’t already be sure to check out and follow our bomb-ass insta, with photos credit to our creative director. Otherwise read more about us below.
Hana Hunkin – @hanhunk – Editor-in-Chief and Founder
Hana got a degree in journalism at City University London, before moving back to Wellington. Foul-mouthed and bossy starting a website of her own was a clear choice. Favourite drink: cosmopolitan.
Clare Keegan – @clarekeeganphoto – Creative Director
Clare has a Bachelor of Visual Arts, majoring in photography from Auckland University Of Technology. She has exhibited her documentary style photos in a number of art group shows around Wellington. With photography as her passion, you’ll find her in the mosh with her camera at events, festivals, fashion shoots or on the streets. Favourite drink: Gin and tonic.
Melissa Bash – @wellingtonbeerbuzz – Alcohol Correspondent
Melissa grew up in Portland, Oregon where she couldn’t help but learn to love beer. Before moving to Wellington she obtained her degree in English from the University of Oregon. Since then she’s put it to use to bring us bi-weekly reviews on some of the complex and wacky NZ style beers.
