ROUGH DREAMS FASHION MONTH EDIT


Hey guys, Since it's the winter season- already how the heck did that happen?!- and the chill is taking hold, it's time to start thinking about wrapping up and although here in Ireland that's a recurring thought all year round, fashion week believes in seasons.

Sifting through sites such as Vogue.com, Elluk.com and Style.com, I've chosen my very favorites in everything from beauty, street-style and of course the decadent shows taking place in all the fashion capitals.

I hope you enjoy my take on the best in the Industry and get a little inspired in the process.

MARLOES FOR INTERMISSION MAGAZINE

"Horst always seems to be staring as some lost soul grappling with a new world while still being endearingly nonchalant"

Marloes Horst, subject of this editorial, is a treasure. 
She has the wide eyes and swollen lips that comes straight from a scene in the seventies with added mystery and cool. I love the moody element in the work where Horst always seems to be staring as some lost soul grappling with a new world while still being endearingly nonchalant. All this basically means is that she's 'cool kid' gold, like a far less showy and over exposed Cara Delevingne, every shoot she does is considered and every character played is carefully constructed in relation to the image being shaped around her- going by this perhaps Freja Erichson would have been a better comparison than Cara but you get my drift.

NOT YOUR GIRLFRIEND


During the summer I had the pleasure of styling a photo shoot for the Not Your Girlfriend club night right here in Dublin city. Sarah (O'Neill) mastermind behind NYG and Harlow&Harvey clothing -among many other things- had the idea to produce a gorgeously personal line of T-shirts to go along with the whole Audio Visual experience of the operation. Now by this time I had been working with Sarah doing visuals for the events and was kindly asked to be stylist on this project along with the lovely Aoife Dunne- obviously it was a no brainer.
When the day in question arrived, Aoife and I met up early to be good little stylists and get organised win! But in pursuit of the venue got totally lost (and had alot of laughs) and just about made it on time double lol.

The shoot itself was a blast with both myself and Aoife styling eclectic looks to complement the T-shirts and aesthetics of the brand. The models were fantastically unique- each with their own personal style and the space was a dream (I especially loved the light installation in the centre of the room). We also used a projector reflecting graphics from the club night onto the models which added a really fun and challenging element to the day.

With Photography by Dean Ryan McDaid from 9 Crow Street and behind the scenes video and stills by Samuel Foxton this is one shoot I'm dying to share with you guys.

Here I've put together a photo diary of the days events with some behind the scenes and some sneaky previews of the shoot, I hope you like them and do check out the Not Your Girlfriend Facebook page HERE for more info on the events and T-shirt range.

Also you can see me wearing my very own Tee from the range in last weeks outfit post HERE,
Hope you like it.

MIRANDA KERR FOR VOGUE ITALIA

Pondering Miranda Kerr's flawless off-duty style led me to this gorgeous shoot by Tom Munro featured in Vogue Italia. I'm not sure, but I think I'd classify this as rocker glam- Kerr style. Its a bit cheeky but very cool too which is always a great combination in my book. Miranda always seems to have tough, fresh feel to her shoots despite the lashings of fashion directors and lavish budgets, something you have to admire! 

Hope you like it x
