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!
Alice McCall transformed the lavish award winning restaurant, Porteno in Surry Hills into a live instillation of models lounging around in chantilly lace and cute rompers. Just think 60/70s, 1999 Galliano, or Opium Den styled sets to go with each outfit. Each look had “Alice” written all over it – it was playful, sensual, and feminine. The presentation felt like a live fashion shoot but minus the luxury of time and space. Basically all the shooters were given about 5 minutes to work with the models within a confined area, whilst the stylish onlookers were right behind us catching all the action. Well you know me, I love the challenge to think quickly on my feet and make the most of any situation to produce images that I am proud to publish. ‘
So here they are and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them. Thank you Electric Collective PR for having me xxx.

Tuesday was all about going behind the scenes with my favourite Australian Designer labels, and Karla Spetic was one of them. Remember the skirt with the road in the middle, well yes that was Karla Spetic. Her whimsical resort 2017 collection, titled “MEMORIES” were a combination of violet, white, navy and blue colours; sheer, rib knitted and embroidered fabrics; frilly ribbed high necklines; quirky cut outs and scallop edging and of-course her signature digital prints with lavender being the main feature. My absolute favourite pieces were definitely the wide legged pants with slits on the side and the rib knitted dresses and that pinafore top with ruffle-trimmed rectangles placed at the center like stamps on an envelope. These pieces will be the perfect addition to my ever growing athletic-chic wardrobe for photographers on the run!
Congratulations to Karla Spetic’s beautiful collection and thank you ONEDAYDREAM PR for having me backstage with the wonderful Body Shop Australia team who created the dreamy and natural beauty looks for Karla Spetic’s models and keeping their body silky smooth and smelling good with the new British Rose body butter. For toes, Butter London ‘Cotton Buds’ Nail lacquer and fingernails and ‘Horse Power Treatment‘ as top coat.

Aje’s lastest collection showcased a range of luxurious fabrics and embellishment, typography prints and intricately beaded gowns against a beautifully candlelit backdrop at MBFWA2015. It was all about timeless style, and a contrast between a mix of edge and feminine.
My favourite picks from the runway were definitely the beaded top worn over denim flares, beaded flares and the typography printed dress!
Here is the entire collection for you to swoon over as shot by me …

As I was outside snapping street style pre Aje show, I caught a glimpse of Edwina Robinson (the founder, designer and other half of Aje) running outside with all smiles before the show commenced. She definitely looked happy and calm!
It’s no secret that photographers love photographing and working with models. We are always on the hunt for interesting faces and fashion week is the perfect place to do so.
Here are some amazing faces I came across during fashion week.
