I’ve been shooting straight for the past few weeks which has been great! There are still so many concepts I want to shoot it seems as if there’s no time. I’ve been wanting to shoot Sheer for ages and when I came across some spare fabrics at Lincraft I snapped them up immediately.
My lovely beauty artist is Samantha Nicholls and gorgeous models are Roxanne @ Vicious and Lorna Deng.

We busted out the wind machine aka the house fan and had lots of fun swishing cloth together. I wish I could do this all the time! Enjoy~
My dad absolutely hates Fashion Week, the city is inundated with people, the streets are filled with cars, it’s certainly not all glitz and glam! How I wish I could be there at the shows though. The offerings vary between opulent prints to minimalistic monochromatic looks. I have my eye on Miu Miu’s Koi Fish coat, Dries Van Noten’s gold flecked collection, Chloe’s deconstructed silk outfits and Stella McCartney’s nod to lingerie as outerwear. There’s top notch beauty notes too, from Alexander McQueen’s clean almost bare face look to Givenchy’s glitter encrusted faces. Enjoy.
Milan takes a break from the 90s throwback visible in the other runways and instead presented streamlined feminine silhouettes with a focus on draping and luxurious materials. Thought not my favourite of the season there are some notable key fashions notes here, from Dolce&Gabbana’s Roman inspired prints, to Bottega Veneta’s explicit pleating and Prada’s homage to the artist muse. Enjoy.
Interrupting our scheduled runway posts with an outfit post!
This is my current absolute favourite outfit hanging in my closet. I wore it to Melbourne Spring Fashion Week and it holds special memories for me because it is also what I wore for my first date with A (and we’re quickly approaching two months together!)
The dress is a stunningly luxurious one from Bul. I fell in love with the print instantly and the material feels so soft and silk like. It sits beautifully and flows like it has a wind under it, and it comes with a camisole. Over that is my Lui Hon calfskin vest. I snapped this up at a sale and it is the only one in existence as it has never gone into production. Imagine as I basically bounced in glee! The cute ankle booties are from Topshop. I’d accessorize this with some major hand bling aka rings and some wrist hardware.
London Fashion Week is always a favourite, designs are are always a little more chic, a little more rock ‘n roll, a little younger. Here again we see relaxed fits following New York but with more ostentatious details, from Burberry’s top to toe lace outfits, to Topshop’s mirror encrusted dresses. Christopher Kane is a surprising hit, bringing easy feminine dresses. Beauty note: check out the luscious straight dry-blown hair!
