Some people are naturally so upbeat, they make you feel happy just by being in their presence. One of those people is Brisbane fashion blogger, TopShop personal stylist and all around lovely lady, Aicha.
It has been a while since I collaborated with Ashleigh, aka The Blonde Silhouette. So it was fun to have a catchup and explore the industrial area of West End! We found this beautiful graffiti alley and knew it would be a perfect setting for her monochromatic look. With plenty of smiles and silly faces to capture there is never a dull moment shooting with Ashleigh!
Aicha knows how to style ripped denim. Add a sheer black top, mirror-like reflective blue sunglasses and don’t forget a big smile! Shot in West End on a cloudy morning this outfit is chilled out urban chic.
Ally Dunlop of Wanderlusting Blog is a talented freelance stylist who is super fun to work with. If you don’t believe me, check out her portfolio. She puts together amazing outfits from local and national designers, creates beautiful hair and makeup and even blogs about her adventures. I have been lucky enough to work with her on several shoots recently including the Harriette Hill editorial and an edgy / grunge collaboration that will be published very soon.
Last year I interviewed Claire Goldworthy who is the designer of Brisbane based, sustainable label, Harriette Hill. Her designs have been featured at Fashion Fridays and Undress Brisbane and uses a range of repurposed, antique, new and natural fabrics to minimise her environmental footprint.
Harriette Hill’s vintage, floral patterns on flowing dresses spoke to me of a hot, summer afternoon at the beach, with a light breeze blowing the soft fabric and the golden sun glistening on tanned skin.
There was a huge variety of fashion showcased by Brisbane’s emerging designers at the RAW Brisbane, Awakening event. From the theatrical costumes of Lotusdevi Designs, who’s models had big hair and even bigger personalities, to the soft, flowing eco-friendly garments of Juzu to the corporate women’s wear of The 400 Co., there was something for every taste!
As usual this is just a sample of what was on offer, so make sure you get to the next RAW event to see it for yourselves!
