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?

Oaks Day Emirates Marquee 2014

This is the final instalment of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. Although it has been an exhausting week of shooting and editing images on the fly, it was definitely one of the biggest highlights of my street style photography career. I have been so blessed to work with my best friend, Jess Dempsey from What Would Karl Do to bring you the best style coverage; biggest thanks to Danica Erard who custom made my headpiece so I can shoot in style, EC-Group who found me on Instagram and engaged me to shoot their beautiful pink and green apple carpet in the Lexus Pavillion, and all the welcoming kisses and hugs every time I enter into the Marquees.

All thanks to the fabulous people around me which made my week at the Races so much special. x

Melbourne Cup Day Lavazza Marquee 2014

I just want to start this post by thanking you guys for the overwhelming positive response to all my images on What Would Karl Do blogsite, Instagram, Facebook and even walking up to me to tell me in person! Wow thank you so much! What amazed me the most is when I woke up this morning, I found my image of Lindy and Michael Klim’s Louboutin heels on Louboutinworld’s Instagram feed (over 3.4M followers) with 73K likes, I mean that’s incredible, and the fact that they acknowledged our work shows me how ethically and the respect they have for other creative’s work.

You see, I love Louboutin’s trademark red shoes because it was only 3 years ago I went to Paris to visit their infamous store on 19 Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 75001 Paris to buy my very first pair of Louboutin heels (patent violet heels) as Parisian souvenir. The store manager who served me at the time even let me in on a secret back then that an Australian lady was opening up a store in Sydney! It has surely come to pass!

Here’s the image that’s going viral (thanks for the regrams too):

Anyway, grab a Lavazza coffee and enjoy some highlights I have for you from Melbourne Cup Day. Feel free to leave me any comments as I would love to hear from you x
