Derby Day 2017 Street Style Highlights

Spring Racing Carnival 2017 is going to be different without my sidekick and fashion blogger, Jess Dempsey of What Would Karl Do. She’s about to have her third baby anytime now and I couldn’t be more excited for her! As you know, I’ve been shooting all the race style moments for Jess’s fashion blog for the past four years, so if you ask me it does feels odd that I can relax, shoot for myself and spend time catching up with everyone inside the Lexus design pavilion.

The Lexus design pavilion this year was inspired by Kiriko cut glass ornamentation, and hand-pleated door trim of the new LS Hybrid 2018 model. Upstairs, you are invited to an culinary experience of Ben Shewry of Attica to sample a three-course tasting menu, a sushi bar dishing up endless slices of sashimi, dessert bar by Caroline Khoo of Nectar and Stone, for the second year running The Daily Edited were personalising wallets, and Hugh Stewart shooting guest portraits.

Well it goes without saying, a stunning venue wouldn’t be complete without the presence of fashionable race-goers, such as Elyse Taylor, Victoria Secret’s model, Kate Waterhouse, Zara Wong of Vogue Australia, Montarna McDonald of The Audience Agency, and Emma Freedman to name a few. And when I finally ventured outside to enjoy the fresh but icy cold weather, I was pretty stoked to spot and snap up a few of my favourite Derby Day looks being Viktoria Novak wearing a black Gucci dress and her own headpiece which was a long velvet bow with pearls, Virginia and Jordan Muir wearing head to toe in Christian Dior, Jennifer Hawkins in Jonathan Simkhai and hat by Ann Shoebridge. So you be the judge, which Derby Day outfit is your favourite?

FASHION EDITORIAL: Spring Racing outfits ft. Voodoo Hosiery

To celebrate the coming of the Spring Racing carnival, I have partnered with Voodoo Hosiery to create a fashion editorial piece called SECRET GARDEN which features 6 key spring racing looks. Together with my stylist, Emily Edwards, we wanted to show you ways in which you can incorporate the Voodoo Hosiery tights or socks into your spring racing outfit. If you are following the trends at fashion week, you will notice wearing socks with heels isn’t anything new, but a winning trend at the moment. Not only does socks look great with boots or open toed heels, they actually prevent your feet from breaking out with blisters. Well isn’t that good news?

The best of Street Style at TOPSHOP London Fashion Week 2017

If only you were here to see the thriving mass of people waiting outside Topshop runway show. The Topshop runway show is one of the most anticipated shows of the LFW schedule since they were welcomed into the LFW schedule in year 2005. It was messy and ridiculously dangerous to shoot any street style on the busy main road, but somehow we managed avoid on coming traffic for the love of photography. Hey, at least the upside was that I saw Kate Moss and her daughter, 14-year-old Lila in tow arriving at the show which was a highlight of my day.
