Winter Fashion: Must Haves

Winter is a time if any to be dressing for comfort, warming yourself up in a burrito of clothing, but that's no reason to not look good (if you're anything like these style snapped bunch).

But ofcourse with anything, there is the basic must haves. A good staple will last you through thick and thin as well as ensuring the warmth you need to get you through the day. My basic default outfit at the moment are jeans, a tee, a jumper, a scarf and a jacket and I've had it on rotation for the last week or so because it's ridiculously cold, but here are my particular staple picks!

1. A good scarf. Forever New are having a three for two sale at the moment so get on it, but if you're sitting around with nothing else to do and craving a DIY try knitting one! It's super easy- although time consuming- and there are a million youtube tutorials out there and a perfect cheaper alternative.

2. Knitwear/Jumpers are amazing at their job. Keeping you warm is what they are here for and are also great for layering under a large coat so they don't need to be thick at all.

3. Boots. Ankle boots to be exact, the new "little black" is the little black boot. You can't go wrong with an ankle boot in any winter outfit.

Editorial Love: Sea Change

So when I was flipping through a 2011 issue of Vogue Australia, what I actually did was fall in love with Codie Young and her blue hair in the editorial shoot "Sea Change".

Digital Printing in Fashion

A relatively new form of textile finish emerging in the end of the 1980s, digital printing is definitely not as prominent in the fashion world as it should be. It actually started from the advertising industries (banners, flyers, etc) which proves that inspiration really comes from anywhere. Especially now that everything is moving to computer aided designs, digital printing has got to be the next big thing.

Affordable designers such as Blackmilk Clothing have made it big through digital printing, they are the names that I think of when I think of digital printing but even the high fashion brands such as Alexander McQueen are adopting it.

It's mainly used on natural fibre materials (aka cotton, silk, linen, etc) but is also seen a lot on Lycra (see Blackmilk) and not to mention it's more sustainable than, say, screen printing. There isn't usually any excess ink since it comes straight from a printer and the inks are biodegradable and water soluble to. So yay I would say most definitely environmentally friendly too!

Styling: Chantelle Ross

A few weekends ago I went on a styling frenzy a few days before our shoot with the usual dream team (Alyssa, Tasha and Sarah) who are my favourite people ever to work with. We switched the roles around a little bit this time, with Sarah as my assistant and Tasha doing hair and make-up instead of modelling, and we added a new member to the team this time; Tasha's sister Chantelle!

Prancing around the Botanical Gardens of Sydney has definitely got to be one of my new favourite places to shoot, the space is literally so big but so beautiful that we didn't sway from the one area.

The concept of this shoot was Spring/Summer, which means floral crowns, floral dresses, and light colours all the way.
