It still hasn’t sunk in that I have just accomplished one of my all time favourite, fashion editorial work with four high end, luxury brands. A Night to Remember is a DIOR-inspired fashion editorial which celebrates the story of friendship between four girl friends through a series of themes: from getting fashionably ready; drinking cocktails by the Sofitel’s Atrium bar; to arriving in the new Mercedes Benz E250d coupe at the NGV.
This special edition was created for Sofitel Melbourne on Collins in partnership with Dior, NGV and Mercedes Benz Australia, and I cannot begin to fathom what an enormous, yet beautiful process it has been for me both personally and professionally. My mind was completely blown away to the 2% glimpse of what it felt like to work with, and to have my work put in front DIOR Paris, is beyond my wildest dreams. If you have seen DIOR & I, you will know what I mean. The angst, control and the tremendous value they place on their brand and product is formidable.
As excited as I am to attend the Dior GALA and exhibition, I am truly grateful for the opportunity to work with Sofitel, and to my incredible team of talents to produce the following series of images. I hope my story will inspire you to believe in yourself and keep creating. Love to you all xxx
