Photo Booth

Actors make good models, you give them a character and they play it out for you in stills. So when I asked Actress Emma Booth for a seductive, free spirited girl she delivered. Here are some out takes from my recent shoot with Miss Booth for Yeojin Bae campaign in my favourite dress from the SS15 collection.

Tools of the Trade

Meet Justin Bobyn, who grew up in Montreal and now resides in Sydney where he completed a Medical Degree at UNSW. Now an Orthopaedics surgeon, he spends his spare time as a jewellery maker! Yes the perfect mix of creative genius overload. His first design a customised bracelet was a collaboration with designer, Patrick Johnson. It started from the idea to have a wrist bone shape and then he kicked around the idea of personlised screws as initials which he makes by hand. So what’s next you say, well he’s just designed a bone replacement implant for children. Go JDB !

Looking Good for 100 !!

White in Shining Armour

I’m guilty of collecting way too many white dresses this season, but look how perfectly this Celine dress worked uptown & down? A fashion staple posed at all my fav galleries in NYC; speaking of which you cant miss the Charles James or Garry Winogrand exhibitions at the MET. And for all those patriotic Americans, you still have time to wear white before Labour Day weekend Sept 1st!
