Aurelio Costarella summer 14/15 is a modern interpretation of the classic 1920/30’s Parisienne silhouettes inspired by the work of Man Ray and the style of his favourite muses, Kiki de Montparnasse, Tamara de Lempika, Nancy Cunard, Lee Miller and Juliete. Aurelio’s runway show started out with a bang of intense colours, ranging from red, fushsia, violet, citrus, then a series of mint, cobalt, turquoise, then antique, black and gunmetal and finished the show with a palette of classic antique and white. Fabrications include silk chiffon, leather, eyelet lace, intricate beading and embroidery in metal, and graduation of ostrich feathers. Here are the highlights taken from my perspective.

Words cannot describe how awesome day one was at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. It was jammed pack with eye candy street style and jaw dropping runway shows. Ok I’m going straight to the point (coz it’s 3am!) – here’s a quick preview of day one with more to come!

Only 4 more sleeps till I jet off to Sydney for the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week #mbfashionweek. I’m so honoured to be representing Boohoo.com again snapping street style; and racing between runway shows in my WhatWouldKarlDo.com T-shirt to capture all the hustle and bustle at Carriageworks. I’m super excited because it’s my first trip to Australian fashion week which is a dream come true. My line up of Australian designer shows I’ll be seeing are Aurelio Costarella, Leroy Nguyen, Gail Sorronda, Karla Spetic, Michael Lo Sordo, Maticevski, UNIF.M, Galanni in a short space of two days! Follow my fashion journey on instagram @heykarenwoo or stay tuned on my blog for updates.

Lately I’ve been obsessing over over-sized cow necks and turtle necks knits ever since Margaret Zhang wore hers at the VAMFF. When Cecylia got changed into a simple yet classic look I instantly fell in love. She is wearing Stella & Minx which is soft and feminine, which can be worn out or in, but in this instance she tucked the turtleneck into her cobalt blue full leather skirt.

Anyway, I setted myself a shooting challenge tonight. I decided not to use off camera flash or Icelight but to use any available light to shoot Cecylia in. It was all about finding the light, and facing Cecylia towards the light. Allow me to explain by scrolling down to read my commentary.

I waited for cars to pass by from both directions to create some backlight and frontlight to light up Cecylia.

I used the illuminating advertising signboards at the Rivoli Cinemas to light up Cecylia’s face. Definitely my favourite series of the night.

Finally, I used the light beaming from the Volvo Car dealership showroom to light up Cecylia.

Why don’t you too challenge yourself and find the light. Happy shooting! xx

VAMFF has been an inspiring taste of Melbourne street fashion which I was honoured to be apart of. I really have to thank my dear friend Jess Dempsey from Whatwouldkarldo, and Cecylia Kee from Cecylia.com for encouraging me to experience and cover the fashion scene. As we know, fashion is an expression of our inner beauty so with that in mind, I made it a point for myself to capture personality. Therefore, I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all the back stories behind each and every gorgeous smile. From aspiring bloggers turned models, FoxFM/Triple M host, fashion and jewelry designers, event and production managers, street style photographers, newlyweds and all the behind the scene staff that made VAMFF possible.

Thanks for following me on Instagram (@heykarenwoo) during VAMFF and I’ll see you at the Mercedes Benz Sydney Fashion week in 6th of April 2014.

Oh by the way, my street style work is now featured on Boohoo.com Facebook page!

Here are the highlights from day 5 of VAMFF. Enjoy x

The biggest highlight of day 3 was seeing and capturing Eva Longoria (L’oreal Ambassador) alongside Megan Gale. She was stunning from top (sporting a new fringe bang) to bottom (white Christian Louboutin heels). After Eva Longoria and Megan Gale (and their entourage) had their photos taken and leave for the VAMFF runway shows, I couldn’t believe I uttered out loud, “I love you Eva”. She was gracious, that she turned and thanked me. *starstruck* That really made my day!

VAMFF has been so much fun, capturing and meeting all sorts of personalities with fierce street style to match. I’m loving Lady Petrova (Fashion Designer) in her beautiful hot pink number, Hanako’s floral headpiece and pink lace ensemble, and Bree Laughlin’s (TV Presenter/Model) signature clutch as designed by Mr Hide and Co. Thank you to everyone for taking the time to pose for me (for Boohoo.com).

Hey I just found out that four of my street style images made it to top 19 favourite instagrams in Buzzfeed, Manhattan New York. It’s like wow, so awesome.

Last night was all about simplistic and elegant style at Collins234 VIP night. I was invited to capture and mingle with a fashionable crowd, and hear from one of Australia’s leading stylist Philip Boon and fashion blogger/writer Sarah Kempson from Style Emporium on what’s on trend this season – chunky necklaces, woolly capes, ankle boots and monochrome outfits. It’s all about keeping it simple and classy. Who knew that monochrome also included color blocking (not just black and white)! My favourite new tip is to use your tie as a cravat – I’ll like to see Matt Preston try that! My favourite outfit of the night was the grey jersey dress and that purple handbag from SABA is just divine!

Thank you Collins234 for having me!

Forgive me. I’ve been so carried away with photography work that I haven’t managed to find time to sit down and write something. Anyway I’ve got some exciting news – I just recently moved photography studios – New York inspired creative loft which screams ME. White wash walls, high ceilings and a huge shooting space with natural light!

My new location is 2/2 Theatre Place Canterbury VIC 3126. I promise I will share some pics, but do visit me and my team at Finessence Photography!

 

Anyway, here’s the sneaky peek of Jess Dempsey at 33 weeks from What Would Karl Do in this amazing number from Boohoo.com. Mind you, this isn’t maternity wear too!
