As a young boy I would flip through Vogue cover to cover and marvel at the fantasy, the fashion and the design behind it all. It was a similar experience to daydreaming. As I grew older I realised that Anna Wintour’s Vogue wasn’t the only Vogue in circulation.
Saving up my allowance to buy Vogue Italia, Vogue Paris and informative British Vogue was always a delight after a long day at school. The smell of the different perfumes being advertised and the glossy images of sylph models in couture so well constructed was a refuge from the harsh grit of growing up in the suburbs.
As most of you know I attended my first Rosemount Australian Fashion Week as a registered delegate this year. It was quite an experience. A definite highlight was being asked to be photographed for various streetstyle blogs but the cherry on the fashion cake was being photographed for Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.Com UK.
Being a fashion assistant it takes a while to be immortalised in the industry. I am nowhere near that point yet. I am still fresh and I am still learning but to be asked and then photographed for British Vogue’s website…what an honour. You won’t be able to wipe the smile off this face any time soon.
