MEGAN MORTON A BIT ABOUT ...

Megan Morton may well have been born to shop. Her grandmother met her grandfather behind the counter at a shop (a chocolate shop in Kensington, Sydney). Megan grew up on a banana farm in Queensland (about 100 k’s away from the shops!). Moving to Sydney she located herself immediately near the shops and subsequently met a lovely Englishman who had shops (and later married him). In an attempt to move away from the shops, she splits her time in between living in the city near the shops and in the country on the weekends, which she has since found, has a few. Her job as a stylist is as close to a professional shopper as you can get. These days she finds great comfort shopping also in Belgium (great kids clothes), Paris (objects to kill for), London (well priced design when you know where to look for it) and New York (stationery and paper is a plus here). In her profession, she is known as a fabulous shopper, picking the eyes out of merchandise and bringing new life to it in her pictures. She is called on not only to write and style homes, interior and food imagery, but to apply her eye to larger than life events, like the revamp of Sheridan showroom (complete with hanging book library and 18th century bird cage), her delightful gymkhana fete take on the Leona Edmiston Westfield Bondi Junction’s Easter Racing marquee and the super slick Arena TV Screen Actors Guild Awards.

A leader in her field, her popularity can be attributed to her love of unconventional colour, strong imagery and over 12 years publishing experience. The fashion, food and art fraternity trust her inimitable style and as a result, she has styled and shot the homes of many celebrated Australians including Kieran Perkins, Peter Fitzsimons, Jessica Rowe, Natalie Bloom, Sass and Bide, Anders Ousbeck, Easton Pearson, Akira Isagowa, Maggie Beer, Stephanie Alexander, Bill Granger, Peter Morrissey, Neil Perry, Leona Edmiston, Martin Grant (in Paris) and Belinda Seper
