CLOUD NINE

Nicole Warne
| mbfwa 2015

It’s always such a pleasure running into Nicole – especially now that she’s so busy and it happens so rarely, it makes the moments I get to see her all that more treasured. A little while before I saw her, I noticed they were removing the giant props from the Alice McCall show. I desperately wanted to shoot someone in front of them, simply because they were so darn cute! Like giant, pastel, candy clouds. But I had to find the right person to shoot with them: totally kawaii and wearing colours complimentary to the props. Enter: Nicole! Navy clothing, cheeky personality, and quirky Louis Vuitton bag… Exactly what I needed. Sometimes, things just come together. And it’s great.

CENTENERA

Christine Centenera before Romance Was Born | mbfwa Day 5 | shot by me for Alice Liddell, and for Street Smith. 

I managed to snap a few shots of the ever-elusive Christine this year, but for some reason I still like the one where you don’t actually know whether it’s her… Must just be used to it now, haha.

Then there was the moment that Tommy Ton ran in and adjusted the cotton thread dangling from her top. At the risk of totally exposing my fashion and street style nerdiness, it was quite amazing – I was all jittery inside.

HEY BUNNY

Nicole Lucas | mbfwa 2015

My girl Nicole rocks colour like nobody’s business – and I was particularly excited about this ensemble because a) it looks killer, b) because “hello awesome hair day”, and c) she’s wearing a Dypnea top and my pal Jana styled the show!

MATICEVSKI

This year I decided to make short videos capturing the atmosphere of some of the MBFWA shows. I’m a little obsessed with cutting videos together – there’s something really satisfying about selecting the music and making the footage fit with it perfectly. I do, however, definitely need to upgrade to a camera with higher video resolution. Kickstarter campaign anyone?! Haha. Hope you enjoy though, regardless of the quality!

By the way, Maticevski was easily my favourite show of the week. It was so incredible – I want everything, including the accessories!! I will now live my life carrying orchids in glass balls, cheers Toni. His layering and structure always makes me swoon. The addition of a floral print was a nice, classically feminine touch compared to recent collections as well. Get ready to count how many times you see these pieces at Melbourne Cup later this year!

I SEE SKIES OF BLUE

Romance Was Born Beauty | mbfwa 2015

It was all clear blue skies at the Art Gallery of NSW for the (always) highly anticipated Romance show – and I managed to capture the same on this models eyes. As usual Luke and Anna put on an incredibly stimulating show, right down to the beauty details. Shout out to my girl Georgia Hull who worked her butt off on these looks (and many others)!

GEMMA

Gemma Ward, MBFWA Day 2.

Spotted Gemma a few times this week – and every time my heart was all a flutter. Especially upon first sight when she opened the Ellery show. Having been fairly obsessed with her over 10 years ago during my university years, and then making peace with the idea that I may never see her peppering the pages of my magazines again, it’s incredibly surreal to see her in the flesh dressed to perfection and dominating the runway. The height of my excitement over her presence came just before the moments above, when I suddenly and dramatically abandoned a conversation with a friend to run over to get the shot*.

Throughout the hectic time that was fashion week, I was able to capture at least one outfit.. Yep, just one*. And this one just happened to be my favourite, my most comfortable, and most practical. I look forward to fashion week every year, but this year was particularly exciting for me as I was shooting all week for Street Smith – so I definitely needed functional outfits. It was a crazy, crazy week! My biggest wins of the week were snaps of Christine Centenera and Gemma Ward! Soon to come on Street Smith – head on over there to see the highlights of Days 1-4!
