Very happy to announce that my work can now be found in the month's issue of Elegant Magazine!
This shoot was coordinated to showcase the wonderful handmade creations of Amanda Dudley Millinery and features the beautiful sisters Teilia and Elle May Smith. All photography and styling by my amazing friend Donatella Parisini, with big thanks to Louise Lassay & Byron Amaya for their invaluable assistance.
Last month I collaborated with two of my favourite Melbourne ladies in the creation of a new video short showcasing the work of Melbourne designer Daniel Cumbo's amazing label IDOL.
Clare Nica filmed, directed and edited the piece and Jasmina Mili once again demonstrated her amazing presence in front of the camera as well as assisting me with hair/makeup and styling throughout the day. I can't even begin to describe how much I loved working with these ladies - it's such a treat collaborating creatively with your friends and I can't wait until we have the opportunity to do it again 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!
A recent play day with the divine Miss Donatella Parisini saw us embarking on a series of head-shots for the beautiful Telia Smith at her gorgeous studio in Suffolk Park. We started off with a very simple and clean natural makeup and over the course of the day I gradually added detail and colour while Donatella styled both the photos and Tilly's amazing sun bleached hair. The shoot also provided an excellent opportunity to include a beautiful hat made by Byron based milliner Amanda Dudley whose path I've come tantalizingly close to crossing on several occasions now - and who I'll finally be meeting next week on the shoot for Satya James' amazing new collection, can't wait!!
