As Head Studio‘s Marketing girl, owners Mark and Marie Cain asked me to tag along to their most recent shoot to take some ‘behind the scenes’ shots. Working on the shoot was hair stylist Marie Cain, fashion stylist Emily Howlett, photographer Christian Blanchard and up and coming model Gabrielle Sullivan. The location; the rooftop of Fremantle’s old Myer building, the venue for the upcoming Head Studio X Billie & Rose‘s Block Party Two! To those of whom are coming to party here’s a little sneak peek of the space! The final edits for the shoot will be posted up soon!

Fashion illustrator Pippa McManus hosted a very special evening last Thursday. The event was the opening night of ‘Sleeping Beauties’, her last exhibition in the 140William space which has been her studio for the past year. Different to past exhibitions, invites were also extended to her Facebook and Instagram fans. ‘Sleeping Beauties’ is by far her best work yet! I have always been amazed by her innate ability to paint delicate details but I swear she really took it to the next level with this series of works; for example look above at the flowers in ‘Nicole in 3D Floral’, the floral pattern in ‘Natasha in Flamingo’ and the bejewelled earring in ‘Grace in Black Satin’ – you will see what I mean!

I can’t wait to see what Pip has in store for us next.

CHANEL FALL COUTURE 2013/14

My favourite looks from Chanel’s recent Couture collection. I love the uniformity and the slight tonal variations in the fabrications of each look. However, what I am lusting over most are the tweed boaters; their square-tipped shape is ingenious!
