In this issue of Collective Hub we pull back the curtain and take a look at the success stories of creatives around the world. We explore the incredible achievements of our cover girls, NATASHA OAKLEY and DEVIN BRUGMAN, the co-founders of A Bikini A Day who have 4 million fans between them. In celebration of this month’s film Hidden Figures we interview A-list actor from OCTAVIA SPENCER on her own obstacles of dyslexia and stage fright; we reminisce with international pop-star and Grammy nominated artist TOVE LO on her Swedish beginnings (and get to know her rebellious streak); and we break bread with several US bakeries that are helping ex-inmates turn their lives around.
We also get down to business in MEXICO and explore why it’s fast becoming a thriving start-up hub (see ya later Silicon Valley!), as well as take up residence in Melbourne’s newest trash-to-treasure venture, NOTEL – a rooftop hotel made of refurbed Airstreams where the design is sleek and the reservation spots are few.
