What’s not to love about the new McGraw collection? The puffy shoulder shirts and ruffle details, the cute little velvet shoes with bows on them (and worn in mismatched colours too) and even the braided up do. I literally want every piece from the runway!
Estelle Michaelides is the genius behind the Micky in a Van fashion design label; and she is one a of a kind – the sweetest and generous kind. We actually met over an Instagram post – “um and ah-ring about whether to go to New York Fashion Week or Paris Fashion Week”, and fortunately we both did (I went to NYFW and she followed her heart to PFW).
What I love about Estelle is that she’s confident and not afraid to stand out. Estelle creates art that is wearable and inspired by her surroundings and emotions. She doesn’t like to follow seasonal trends and colours or what the latest Designer is doing.
After returning from our awe-inspiring Fashion Week trips; we got together for a fashion editorial shoot to explore what we both learnt and experienced during Fashion Week. If you are wondering what that is, it is simply “Fashion on Steroids”.
Since there are only 2 more days till VAMFF, I am proud to present to you our first street style look (The “perfect denim jumpsuit”, as styled and modeled by Estelle). We really hope this inspires you to experiment with fashion and not be afraid to stand out, because this is what gets you snapped up during Fashion Week.
Good luck xo

The denim jumpsuit is available for purchase at “Estelle the Store” on 244 Upper Heidelberg Rd, Ivanhoe, Melbourne.
It’s nearing the end of year 2014, and I have very exciting news to share. As you know I have been shooting and working with Jess Dempsey from What Would Karl Do for more than two years, and she has asked me to join her amazing blog that she has beautifully crafted in the last 5 years. I am unbelievably overwhelmed by the love and respect she has for my work that I’m now the official half (the photographer) of What Would Karl Do. For the past few month, I have been teasing her a little by saying, “What Would Karl Do with Karen Woo”. Anyway we have many new amazing projects and collaborations we can’t wait to accomplish because we going to bring What Would Karl Do to the next level!
So as our journey begins, we were exclusively invited into the house of Chanel (on Flinders Lane, Melbourne) to preview Chanel’s latest Spring Summer collection – the Cruise Collection 2014/15. Karl Lagerfeld offered up an Arabian-infused which was inspired by the lifestyle of Dubai. From custom made Jerry Can handbags, to mini Chanel Boy Bag clutches. We adored everything about the collection.
Here it is, as captured on my fabulous Iphone6…
