Linda Cropper knows what it’s like to be on the receiving end of a life-changing performance. When the acclaimed actor was a student at the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA), she was a firsthand witness to the magic of stagecraft. The source? Lady Macbeth herself.
Los Angeles based designer and artist Suzi Click is a collector. Widely known for her artisan apparel and accessories line, the embodiment of her own, eclectic more is better boho style, Suzi layers both fabric and memory into each of her creations.

F or Chinese-Australian artist Lindy Lee, it was never a question of being an artist, but more the process of creating became vital to defining her sense of self. One of Australia’s foremost contemporary artists, Lindy’s work, which covers painting, sculpture, installation, and more recently, public art projects, is a frequent introspection on her heritage and the influence of Taoist and Buddhist philosophy.
Margot Spalding first came across our radar here at Broad because of her bold style, and #funwithfashion ethos for women over 50. But as the title of her Australian Story segment rightly suggests, Margot is a force of nature. Despite being dealt the cruellest of blows at 15 when she lost both her parents, and then again at 17 when she lost her sister, Margot has in the words of her daughter Georgia ‘thrown herself at life’ — dedicating herself to supporting others and standing up for those without a voice.
Some young girls are really into pink. Others insist on dressing up – princess for a day is a popular theme. And others prefer to step out in a dropped waist dress, carrying mother’s handbag and sporting a mini-bouffant. And that’s just to visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Even at age three, a sense of timeless styling had Elizabeth Kingston in its grip.
