Rebecca Khoury has been in the publishing industry for the past 11 years, working at Harper’s Bazaar and Grazia before co-founding AVPublishing in 2012. Rebecca is currently Associate Editor of 10 and 10 Men Australia – an independent publication that is a verified industry bible when it comes to featuring the best writers, photographers, designers and stylists.

Now in her 2nd year as a judge on the Flaunter Emerging panel, Rebecca was yet again blown away by the talent produced by Australian fashion institutions.

Congratulations to the 5 designers that Rebecca has nominated as the ones to watch!
