Hopeless lingerie ‘As Above, So Below’ 2013

“How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.” – Arthur C. Clarke The ridiculously talented designer Gabrielle Adamidis returns for Spring Summer 2013 with her latest Hopeless lingerie collection ‘As Above, So Below’.

Move It or Lose It | Sports Luxe

Here’s a peek at a recent editorial I styled recently with 35mm Fashion Photography, hair and make-up artist Trish Sousa and Hannah J from Giant at the beautiful Vogue South Yarra. Spring is but one month away so it’s time to shake off the layers and get moving. Hannah wears wears Keegan, American Apparel, Elliott,

Lookbook | Gorman | Spring 2014

This Spring, Gorman is time travelling; clashing ancient history with the quasi-futuristic. The label pits ‘Hieroglyphics vs Holographics’. The latter is yet to be unveiled, but a seasonal preview shows the former as a ‘Gorman-ised‘ Egyptian sensibility. We find another clash at this point. This time it’s cultural, as dying techniques

Lookbook: Friend of Mine ‘Gypset’ Spring Summer 13-14

A little while ago I took you behind the scenes of the lookbook and campaign shoot for Friend of Mine‘s new collection ‘Gypset’. Here’s the finished result!

Art Series Hotels Find Your Inner Muse

Mia Harangozo from Giant Management is the face of Art Series Hotels‘ latest project. Shot by photographer Adam Taylor the ‘Find Your Inner Muse’ series takes quite a fashionable angle, featuring pieces from Australian designer labels such as Aurelio Costarella (shout out to Ray – it’s his birthday today), Dinosaur

Winter White

Here’s a peek at a recent editorial I styled recently with 35mm Fashion Photography, Make-up Artist Trish Sousa, Hair Stylist Hilda Santalucia and Grace from Giant at the beautiful Speakeasy. There’s nothing more chic than white on white, so why save the look for Summer, when it’s appropriately frosty outside?

Melbourne Spaces: A-Esque

Label whore? You can probably just go right ahead and ignore Amanda Briskin-Rettig’s latest venture. Founding the undeniably successful Mimco brand many moons ago, Amanda’s new label A-Esque is quite the antithesis to accessories that demand attention. Oh, you’ll still coo over supple Italian leathergoods but this time around her

One Rodarte collection was inspired by Death Valley and vultures. Givenchy have
