CHANEL, ACT ONE.

I COULD WRITE AN ESSAY ABOUT THIS PROJECT BUT REALLY, IT COMES DOWN TO THREE POINTS. IT WAS PARIS. IT WAS CHANEL. AND IT WAS AN HONOUR. CAPTURED BY PHOTOGRAPHER CARA STRICKER AND CURATED BY ME, HERE IS PART ONE OF MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FASHION HOUSE IN THE WORLD. P.S DO ME A FAVOUR AND COUNT TO LAGERFELD SO THE MOVING IMAGES BELOW CAN BE EVERYTHING THEY WANT TO BE. MERCI, BISOUS!

THE DEFIANT ONES

DE·FI·ANT
ADJECTIVE: DEFIANT. 1. SHOWING DEFIANCE. "SHE WAS IN A DEFIANT MOOD" ANTONYMS: COOPERATIVE. SYNONYMS: INTRANSIGENT, RESISTANT, UNCOOPERATIVE, NON COMPLIANT...SHAKUHACHI. THE AUSTRALIAN LABEL HAS APPLIED A VOYEURISTIC NEW APPROACH TO SHOOTING THEIR CAMPAIGNS, IN WHICH THEY HAND OVER THE REIGNS TO A SERIES OF CREATIVES WHO CAPTURE SHAKUHACHI'S COLLECTION THEIR OWN WAY. PHOTOGRAPHER  MEGA BABE CARA STRICKER AND I WERE ASKED TO SHOW 'EM WHAT WE GOT FOR THEIR AW14 COLLECTION "THE DEFIANT ONES" AND I'M SO GLAD THEY DID. IT TOOK TWO TRAIN TICKETS, TWENTY-SIX ROLLS OF FILM AND THREE HOURS TO SHOOT THE CAMPAIGN AT CARA'S BARN IN UPSTATE NEW YORK. NO HAIR OR MAKEUP, JUST BORROWED GUMBOOTS, A CONTAX AND A MUSICIAN PRACTICING YOGA IN THE LIVING ROOM WHILST PLAYING PSYCHEDELIC SOUNDSCAPES THAT FILLED THE WOODS. IT SOUNDS LIKE I'M LYING, BUT I'M NOT. AND BECAUSE OF THAT, IT WILL ALWAYS BE ONE OF MY FAVOURITE SHOOTS OF ALL TIME. PEACE!

TOGETHER FOREVER

THERE ARE FEW IMPORTANT FIRSTS IN A GIRLS LIFE. FIRST LOVE, FIRST CHANEL, FIRST HEARTBREAK..... FIRST LEATHER JACKET. AND I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THE KIND YOU MEET IN HIGH SCHOOL THAT YOU OCCASIONALLY TAKE OUT TO BARS AND SOMETIMES TO THE MOVIES. I'M TALKING ABOUT "THE ONE". AND WHEN YOU FIND "THE ONE". IT SWEEPS YOU OFF YOUR FEET. IT IS AN EVENT SO MONUMENTAL, NO ANY ONE PERSON CAN READY THE OTHER. THE CEREMONIOUS EVENT THAT EFFECTS YOU PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY AND MOST DEFINITELY FINANCIALLY. AND WHILE I WAIT TO HEAR BACK ABOUT MY UPCOMING AD IN THE NEW YORK TIMES WEDDINGS & CELEBRATIONS SECTION, I THOUGHT I'D GO PUBLIC WITH IT HERE FIRST. LADIES AND (FROM WHAT ANALYTICS TELLS ME) QUITE A FEW GENTLEMEN, I'D LIKE YOU TO MEET THE WASHED LEATHER JACKET BY BURBERRY BRIT. I THINK WE'RE GOING TO BE VERY HAPPY TOGETHER. KISSES! P.S WE REGISTERED AT BARNEY'S.

MAN AT WORK

DION LEE TOOK NEW YORKERS DOWN UNDER WITH HIS SECOND NYFW SHOW "AUSTRALIANA ARCHETYPE" LAST THURSDAY.  DION REFERENCED TWO OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS THIS SEASON- EXOTIC ANIMALS AND THE 90'S. THE DAY BEFORE THE SHOW, ILONA AND I BRAVED BLACK ICE IN SNOW SHOES (HER) AND POORLY CHOSEN PRADA CREEPERS (ME) AND STOPPED BY HIS PERRY STREET STUDIO TO PREVIEW THE COLLECTION. THESE WERE TWO OF MY FAVOURITE LOOKS AND SOME IPHONEOGRAPHY FROM FRONT ROW. GOTTA GO, IT'S STILL FASHION WEEK... SWEETIE, DARLING. *AIR KISSES*
