Melbourne Fashion Week 2021: Day 2 Street Style Day

Day 2 on the streets and here are my Melbourne Fashion Week streetstyle highlights captured outside Federation Square.

From observation, it looks like sequinned dresses, cut outs and neon coloured suits are trending in Melbourne right now!

Enjoy! x

Take the Nikon Z6 II to the Fashion Runway

My fashion photography career began in 2014 when my good friend, Jess Dempsey encouraged me to shoot street style because I loved fashion, style and people. So off I went and travelled around the world, attending Fashion Weeks to photograph everyday fashionistas. I would patiently wait, scout and capture outstanding outfits, combined with good light and the right moment. This has taught me resilience and how to build a rapport, understand style and take a good photo in 5 mins. Since then I’ve been incredibly fortunate to work for WGSN (global trend forecasting agency) and contribute to online publications like Vogue Australia as a Fashion Film maker. It’s a real pinch-me moment to look back at the years as an ‘outsider’ to now sitting front row at Melbourne Fashion Festival with the latest Nikon Z6II camera.

So here’s a stop motion video to showcase how insanely fast and accurate the face + eye tracking feature, and the 14FPS hyper continuous shooting mode is on the Nikon Z6 II camera. I highly recommend this camera if you want to capture your favourite looks without missing the beat!










LONDON FASHION WEEK Street Style 2019

Fashion month has begun, and I’m excited to get some time away from Australia to capture my favourite street style moments in London, Milan and Paris. Patterns, bold colours and Bottega shoes are what seems to be the trend this season. You be the judge, what’s your favourite look?

These were captured outside Victoria Beckham and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi runway show. Please get in touch with hey@karenwoo.com.au for any usage with thanks.

Paris Fashion Week 2018 Loewe Street Style with the mirrorless Nikon Z7

Looking back, capturing street style outside Loewe was my personal favourite of the entire Paris Fashion Week schedule. It all came down to the interesting clothes, accessories and shoes, the detailed patterns, textures, patch work, pleats and the peplum corset belt was to die for! I was so close to purchasing one but I ended up finding a beautiful vintage Chanel corset belt in Marais for 250 euros. If you are wondering what is one of the “must-have accessories” to come off fashion week, I’ll definitely say “the corset belt”. It’s one versatile piece that would elevate your shirt dress or high waisted pants from boring to elegance!

 

Paris Fashion Week 2018 Altuzarra Street Style with the mirrorless Nikon Z7

I would normally stop and ask the model if I can direct and shoot them but this time to my surprise, I met this mega babe London Myers from New York who asked if I could take a photo with me! She has recently walked for Louis Vuitton, Balmain and even shot in Dior’s AW18 lookbook. Of-course I said yes, and then in return I asked if she could do a little short fashion film with me using the mirrorless Nikon Z7. Each individual clips were wifi onto the IPhone XS,  edited in INSHOT application and then uploaded here. Which means, there may be a slight loss of quality. Best way is to edit the film clips directly in Premier, but I wanted to test the wifi functionality which was lightening fast. 

Do you want to see more short films? Please comment below and let me know what you think.
