Phoebe is a Melbourne based editor, photographer and publisher who also specialises in digital strategy and public speaking.
As Editor of Melbourne based fashion site ‘Lady Melbourne,’ Phoebe Montague’s fashion commentary and style has earned her a reputation as one of Australia’s key fashion bloggers.
Founded in 2007, Lady Melbourne has grown to include a social media reach of over 50K unique, organically accumulated likes, fans and followers across platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
After completing a BA Fine Art (Drawing) at RMIT University, Phoebe started her own accessories label that took her to Sydney and London. Upon returning to Melbourne, she realised a long term goal to study journalism and graduated again from RMIT University in 2009 with a post graduate degree in journalism.
Aside from the blog and freelance writing assignments, she teaches blogging, social media and journalism at the Centre for Adult Education (CAE) and RMIT University here in Melbourne, and guest lectures at various corporate and educational events.
Phoebe’s talent as a public speaker is her ability to distill complex ideas and communicate them to a broad audience with humour and wit. She has spoken at ProBlogger, one of Australia’s largest annual blogging conferences, The Walkley Foundation and Melbourne Writers Festival, on everything from blogging, fashion, e-books, digital strategy and editorial versus advertorial content.
