MFW 2017 Models Off-Duty Street Style highlights

Did you know that Melbourne Fashion Week (#MFW) is the new, and cooler brand name replacing the old name, “Melbourne Spring Fashion Week”? 

I’ve teamed up with the City of Melbourne, who is proudly presenting Melbourne Fashion Week (M/FW) to hunt down my favourite models off-duty street style looks. My standout looks were definitely Lin Xie’s Vetement’s x Champion sweater and sneakers by Seppe Zanotti; Bianca Guest’s slick black vintage Guess jumpsuit; and Bradley McGill’s hound tooth pants by COS and Calibre turtleneck.

I also went behind the scenes at the model casting day to capture a few moments of the models charming the judging panel of 11 people with their personality, walk and posing. 50 new fresh faces will be chosen to walk the runway at the MFW and I’m super excited to see who will be walking at this year’s runway shows.

On the same note, I will snapping up my favourite street style looks at Melbourne Central so please come down and say hi, and hopefully get your most fashionable snapped and featured on their social channels. Pencil the details down on your diary now:

Vogue American Express Fashion Night Out (VAEFNO)

Ok, so here are my favourite looks and moments from the MFW Model Casting day.

 

NYFW 2016 Day 7 – Models Mayhem at Marc Jacobs Show

 

The last day of NYFW 2016 was all about Marc Jacobs and dreads, but as for me I wanted to experiment more with light and shade to create more visually interesting images. I didn’t want my images to look perfect, but raw, moodier and more ‘in the moment’, and I couldn’t be more happier with my work on the last day at the Marc Jacob’s show.

 

I know its not my standard ‘clean and minimal’ style of editing but I’m really liking it. I guess at the end of the day, you have to ask yourself what are you trying to achieve and what story are you trying to tell. I added more green, contrast, grain and fades in my images to give my images a more edgier look.

Tell me what you think! xx
