Lone Star

It’s not Dallas. It’s not Texas. It’s wherever you want it to be, and there’s no doubt there’s West on the mind…
Western elements have recently been popping up in unexpected ways both on the catwalk and off, and at the recent shows there was the Urban Cowboy trend rising up on the street in Western boots, embroidered shirts and low-slung belts. Keep the look relaxed and effortless in slouchy denims, print tees, leather jackets and boots. For a sexier interpretation of the trend, layer Western elements with femme fatale ones like sparkles, fitted leather or satin.West_8

Rosie Tupper for ELLE Vietnam June 2013

This week, ELLE Vietnam released a story that I shot for them back in January this year with photographer Matthew Ryder. I’m so proud of the results we achieved. Sourcing product from the Asian counterparts for the luxury labels and the Australian PR offices across the new year period is not an easy task. I received my brief two days before Christmas and had to action it immediately, maintaining contact as much as possible through the break and into the first days of January.  Our shoot date was scheduled for the 12th Jan. I went back and forth between the Australian contacts and their Asia-Pacific sister offices tracking down specific looks from the Spring 2013 collections.
We were able to mix in a number of Australian labels who have generated a presence overseas, and we worked with Perth beauty Rosie Tupper to give the quintessential Aussie beach vibe. This particular photographic treatment would have to be one of my favourites, where the skin tones are pink and creamy, with soft grain. Hope you love the muted colour palette in the clothes also.
