Synchronicities. Some say they don't mean anything in particular and others in the more spiritual camp say that circumstances perfectly aligning , like de ja vu , is a sign from the Universe that you are on the right path in life. When I heard that Willow wanted to collaborate on a post I also received an invite to attend Hamilton Island Race Week so in my eyes it was a no brainer; beautiful ethereal location coupled with gorgeous clothes is always a win in my eyes.

The Spring Summer 15 Willow collection is part glam rock, part modern goddess so I wanted to convey this in the colours , tones and contrast of this editorial. The first thing I felt and saw in my mind when I looked at these clothes is that girl who is at a beach party as the sun is rising, slightly messy, reflective, dreamy and dangerous with wind catching her hair and the hem of her dress. There is an edginess and sexiness to these looks but ultimately, I found these clothes extremely comfortable to wear - which is a miracle for evening wear. Hope you like! X

Stripes have been a constant in fashion for the last couple of seasons but this season, they take on an edgier persona in cool shapes and fabrics. Too much stripe can equal a banded migraine of Beetlejuice proportions ( a little bit goes a loooong way ) but equally, stripes can add an edge to […]
