Cosmic Charm

Me and a friend each have a similar stone, one which we bought together during our travels!
so it's a little special, ...and feels a bit magical!!!!

Excessive Style

I was fortunate enough to be approached by one of my very close and talented friends; Alexandra Moye, to style for her film. This short film looks into the notion of dress and excess, but more so, how we paint ourselves daily to portray the visions of our mind. Transforming us from the blank canvas which we begin with in the morning, into something more brilliant.

Blinding Obsessions

The third and final segment.

There seems to be an almost religious like obsession with fashion.
With a mass of followers, fanatical recordings, and a burning serge of powerful imagery to back it; fashion swoons viewers over with its charm.

But there is also a darker prospect. One that questions these fanatical rituals. As the almost saintly and other-worldly models seem to be immediately superseded, 45mins later at the next prophetic show.

Are we waiting for our new fashion savior?

Disappearing Act

Part Two: RAFW Photo Essay.

Bewilderment and wonder seems to surround a show. It's a strange idea, sitting and staring at walking clothes. ...As the clothes seem to disappearing as soon as they appear.

And Then It was Over...

This is the first part of a series of photos taken over my recent trip to Sydney for RAFW (Rosemount Australian Fashion Week).
Being my first time attending, I became interested in the social and physical interactions which take place during these shows....
