David Meagher

I was the editor of The Australian newspaper's monthly luxury lifestyle magazine, WISH, for more than 15 years.


Before that I was a senior writer at The Australian Financial Review Magazine for seven years and the deputy editor of the AFR’s Life & Leisure section and Sophisticated Traveller magazine.


I have written for numerous publications including The Sydney Morning Herald, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue Australia, Vogue Entertaining, Vogue Living, Australian Art Collector, The Sydney Star Observer and Marie Claire Australia. I write mostly about fashion, luxury, architecture and design. 

I'm also the author of three non-fiction books: It’s Not Etiquette: A Guide to Modern Manners (Random House, 2005); Fashion Speak: Interviews with the World’s Leading Designers (Random House, 2008); and The A to Z of Modern Manners (Penguin Random House 2015).

Secrets and Lies: A story of justice, perseverance and the life that comes after is now available, published by Penguin Random House Australia.

I was born, raised and currently live in Sydney, Australia.
