Last month I teamed up with Lyris Design to showcase a selection of her beautiful handmade garments at Fiend Fest Melbourne. I handled the makeup while the wonderful Gorjess Designs showcased her handiwork with some wonderful hair creations. Our models absolutely rocked the catwalk at the Carpe Noctum Fashion Show & the days events were beautifully captured by the one and only Alysander De Djinn Photography. Alysander and the wonderful Olivia Duval very kindly set us up a photography area backstage where they captured some beautiful images of our combined handiwork after the show which will be ready to share soon! Thank you to everyone involved for a spectacular day of alternative fashion xxx
I recently teamed up once again with Satya James and Donatella Parisini to shoot Satya's new collection inspired by the swashbuckling ladies of the high seas and infused with some beautiful gypsy elements. Once again the glorious Miss James has outdone herself in creating an absolutely divine collection of womens-wear that's both playful and absolutely delicious.
In prep for this shoot I spent a couple of days with Satya in her studio customizing hats that had been shaped by the lady herself and Amanda Dudley and making a gypsy pirate inspired headdress to use as props.
The shoot itself went beautifully - as things always do with Donatella! We commenced the day in her gorgeous studio in Suffolk Park and I started applying makeup that integrated the colours from the collection while the lovely Jarrah Hustler set to work styling Satya, Carmen and Lakita's hair. Donatella and her lovely assistant Byron captured some beautiful studio shots after which we descended on an amazing lunch prepared by the lovely Lousie before heading down to Brunswick. Here the luscious ladies really got into character - commandeering a local fishing boat whose lovely owner was kind enough to take us out of the harbour so we could really get into the spirit of things.
All in all another wonderful shoot with some of my favourite ladies - I'm very much looking forward to seeing the results!
