I've been a busy woman of late and have been very internet absent amongst the excitement of moving house and shooting lots and lots. Here's a snap of one of Brisbane's coolest models, Taylah Hasaballah. Signed with Dally's, Taylah is not only incredibly beautiful and intelligent but runs her own online vintage boutique with her friend Clare. You can check out some more of the photos at the girls blog here, and big love to photographer Ali Mitton and makeup artist Lauren Chalmers for their parts in this beautiful day. I know I say this all the time but there really is nothing much rewarding than working with talented people who you really like.

Diaz campaign which I worked on earlier this year. I was so proud to see photographer Megan Cullen who shot this campaign recently featured on the Russh blog!
It's no secret that Ana Diaz is one of my favorite Brisbane creatives and I am so excited to show off the SS '13 lookbook which we shot a few weeks ago very soon. Check out Ana's tumblr for some sneaky previews and more outtakes.

So I've been flying very low on the radar of late, lots of very exciting projects that are soon to be released that have been keeping me busy. Today was one of those fantastic days where an amazing team made a campaign shoot feel anything but a day at work. Thank you so much to photographer Danni Ogilvie, makeup and hair artist Lauren Chalmers, videographer Amy Longworth, models Mia Forrest, Alana Anderson and Georgie Gifford, and of course exceptionally beautiful and talented designer Holly Ryan. The new season jewellery campaign is out of control gorgeous everyone, get ready!

'Tropical Rebel' features Mulholland's signature surf culture inspirations, most obviously featured throughout the collection in a standout neon shark bite print.

A preview of the soon to be released DIAZ AW 2012 campaign which I styled recently. Photography by the amazing Megan Cullen, and shot on location in beautiful Woombye. This was one of best weekends away for work that I've ever had - it always comes down to working with incredible people and the team for this project were perfect!

One of the more exciting high street designer collaborations, Mary Katrantzou x Topshop, is due to drop later this week and I am already anticipating the dark shadow which will be cast over my credit card balance. Vogue UK have previewed the capsule collection here, and while the tees and leggings are a more balanced pricepoint, it is the jersey and silk dresses which have got me captivated.
After long admiring this beautifully vibrant shirtdress at RAFW last year, I was lucky enough to pick it up at the Gary Bigeni sample sale in Brisbane over the weekend. It has been perfect already for the weather here in Brisbane and I'm looking forward to pairing it with a blazer and ankle boots for winter.

Deadly Ponies Mr Mini Fill n Zip in Magenta
Updated shopping desires. Pretty keen for AW12 Deadly Ponies collection to drop in stores - the colors this season are all stunning, although the above Magenta is my pick.
I am so incredible thrilled to see the eagerly anticipated AW 12 collection, 'Flame', from celebrated Sydney designer Elliot Ward-Fear. The above images are just a selection from the striking lookbook, featuring New Zealand talent Liv O'Driscoll and the creative genius of photographer Thom Kerr and stylist Cassandra Scott-Finn. The images form arguably the most impressive lookbook to be released in Australia for the season, not surprising considering the stellar calibre of the team which produced it.
As for the clothes, the lush fabrication, impeccable tailoring and unique silhouettes are what sets Elliot's work apart from the rest in my personal opinion. The jacket/dress in the first shot is my pick from the collection, however the intricately structured mini dresses and latex under garments hold enormous potential for styling inspiration. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for this talented young designer.

Tom Gunn recently and picked up a pair of these beautiful wedges. They've been my go to heel ever since and I must say, Shannon Gunn and Gaby Thompson have absolutely perfected the art of functional yet beautiful and interesting footwear. The materials used in all of their collections are of the best quality and the color palettes will leave you anxious in anticipation between season to season. I've got my eye on their striking collaboration with Sydney wunderkind Gary Bigeni, as well as the exciting AW 12 Collection due to drop in stores in February.

I've had the real privilege of working with some incredible creative talents over the last month - I can't wait to show you all the finished projects! This fiery shot of Brisbane born beauty Nicole Pollard is from a day shooting earlier this month with one of my favorite photographers Thom Kerr. Teamed with the genius hair and makeup skills of Lauren McCowan, this was one of the most enjoyable days in the studio that I've had in a long while.

I've got a few exciting projects in the works at the moment with one of my favorite Brisbane labels, Diaz. It's been such a rewarding experience to watch this label grow over the past eighteen months and I couldn't be more proud to have had the privilege to work alongside talented designer Ana Diaz.
A collaboration with Sportsgirl has been on the horizon for the last year, and now we can finally see the results! The collection, 'The Graduates' features both Diaz and Sydney graduate Jessica O'Connor, both contributing a five piece capsule collection which will be launched in stores on the 2nd of March.
I've got my eye on the mustard polka dot knit and black kimono style coat! I'm fortunate enough to own the brown leather circle skirt from the Diaz AW 2011 collection and the mustard knit will be the perfect accompaniment for Autumn.

Really feeling the aesthetic of Lover's Autumn Winter 2012 lookbook, particularly this little leather collared dress and the draped velvet jacket. I love the darker color palette and grungy undertones; reminds me of first discovering Fugazi in high school, uniform of inevitably ripped opaque stockings, shorter than allowed black skirt and headphones hidden in an oversized blazer and mass of unkept black hair.
I always love Marni but often don't see their collections fitting into my wardrobe, it's almost as though I see their pieces for myself at a different stage in life, or if I had a different lifestyle. These shoes, however were love at first sight. Perfect accompaniment to my favorite little black velvet dress or even with a crisp white blouse and black leather skirt - my lazy go to outfits which I know always work.

A sneak preview of a shoot from late last year. Luke Mansini is a long time friend and creative collaborator, and a very talented visual artist and musician. He has recently launched his solo project, which you can check out here. I always have the best time on shoots with this team and Luke really pushes the boundaries for his vision to be realised in everything he approaches.

I'm lusting after classic black for my wardrobe at the moment; these two pieces are on the top of my shopping list for the next month.

Sabrina de Hoff creates the most ingenius textural combinations in her jewelry, I recently acquired this beautiful piece and I am so excited! Perfect accompaniment for all the white frocks I've bought this summer.
