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

Aje kicked off Mercedes Benz fashion week Australia with a runway overlooking the opera house -crisp cotton shirts, Bermuda shorts, signature balloon sleeves, topstitching and ruffles commanded the runway but I loved the tiered, flowing dresses and oversized suiting the best. As much as Aje drew on their signature silhouettes for this collection, this incarnation […]

"So they close together Dressed in red and yellow Innocent forever, sleeping children In their blue soft rooms still dream" Colours are fascinating.

Being obsessed with the beauty of fashion is one thing, yet having a penchant for historical nerdiness, I find it utterly absorbing […]
