Today I am sharing a fantastic concept by a new brand called Antithesis. I stumbled across a video from the launch that I attended last year and thought that it would be great to share this with you all. See if you can spot me in the video!
Antithesis has designed a capsule range that is sustainable for any working woman’s daily life. The range entitled ‘The Carry on Closet’ features 10 pieces that are interchangeable so you never get bored of your wardrobe.
The collection has been influenced by the strict one-bag policy that budget airlines have enforced. This 10 piece collection is very versatile; blouses become sleeveless, blazers turn into waistcoat, modular dresses zip and unzip to different attachments and if that wasn’t enough these all then fit into a cabin-size suitcase. Check out the video below that shows you just how versatile this range is.
If you are a regular reader of my posts; you will be aware that I am a big supporter of sustainable brands and Antithesis is a brand that is economical conscious as they source their fabrics locally that only manufacture short runs for the brand.
Here are some of my favourite pieces from the range.

I really love the concept of this brand, at a time when we all have less money to spend, Antithesis bring a refreshing tradition back to the market. If you invest in pieces that can be worn in different ways and can be accessorised you loose the need for disposable fashion. Why not make a change in your own wardrobe and invest in the next piece that you purchase.
What do you think of the range? I would love to hear your thoughts.
Today I am not just sharing my work with you but also a new AW13 collection by amazing menswear designer Jenny Schwarz.

Just before the Christmas break, I worked on the look book for amazing menswear designer Jenny Schwarz AW13 collection. Jenny‘s collections always feature pieces that are beautifully cut and tailored. This is a rare quality to find but tailoring has been in Jenny‘s family for over a decade, and some would say it is in her blood.
Jenny asked me to do the styling on her latest collection and I was delighted as I have really wanted to work with Jenny for along time. The lookbook was photographed by Michael Furlonger and Bunny Allen did hair and make up. Props and set designer Lorna Kelly, was also brought on board to bring Jenny‘s visions alive for this shoot.
I have been following Jenny‘s collections for a few seasons now and I can honestly say that with each collection, she grows as a designer. As I mentioned above, Jenny’s cut of tailoring and attention to detail (a girl after my own heart) is beautiful. It is hard to pick out my favourite pieces within this new collection as I believe that this will truly be the collection to push her work and name out there into the spotlight.
For this collection Jenny was influence by Jesse James and the tailored jackets and trousers worn by him and other horsemen of the era but she still manages to stay true to her signature that she is now creating for herself including leather jackets and coats with sheepskin collars, cashmere jumpers and long johns (which Bunny and I are hoping Jenny will be made in women’s sizes so that we can purchase a pair), shirts and panelled trousers.
Today I am sharing with you something that is really exciting within my career as a stylist. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you would have read my ‘Top 2012 Fashion Moments…..Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013’ post that explained that in December, I worked with Michael Furlonger on an epic editorial for Idol Magazine.
While we were shooting this editorial, we also shot a teaser film which has been released by the magazine, in the hope that it gets you really excited about seeing the publication that will be on shelves from February.
Issue 5’s theme was about power and I can’t share with you our title for this shoot just yet (Michael swore me to silence), but I can share this teaser video that we made while shooting the editorial.
So what do you think of it? Are you excited to see the publication? Have you guessed the title yet?
I hope you have enjoyed my post and that you are thinking of ideas on what the title will be! I look forward to hearing your comments.
Over a year ago, photographer Michael Furlonger came up with the concept for the Wind shoot but some how other shoots always seemed to take president over this one.
A few weeks ago we finally found time to shoot this and I can tell you that everyone that worked on this didn’t expect the photos to turn out as they did. After year of planning the photos that are featured on Idol Magazine online look amazing.
Hair and Make up was create by our very own Bunny Allen who I work with a lot and the amazing backgrounds were created by our prop/set designer Lorna Kelly.
Have a look yourself and let me know your thoughts.
Once again I worked with Michael Furlonger on the Simplicity shoot which was feature on Idol Magazine online. We wanted to create a female version of our simple shoot but drawing influence from our hot shoot. There is such a spring summer feeling to this shoot. Below are the finish photo’s, I hope you like them.
After being asked to collaborate with fashion e-zine on their latest issue Crystallisation, amazing fashion photographer Michael Furlonger came up with the concept for our frozen shoot. These images capture a beautiful girl who has been frozen in time.
