Metropolis’ Girl


Urban chic. Cosmopolitan glam. City slicker. However you want to define the trend, it is inevitably here. Loosely inspired by the color blocking seen on runways from New York to Paris and the current SS Jil Sander collection we shot an autumn/winter editorial amongst the hustle and bustle of Sydney. Again I got the opportunity to work with a model who knew her shapes and best angles, working in unison with the city’s diverse architecture. It was a busy shoot with two locations to get every look right. Xiaohan Shen, our photographer was more than able to create high fashion imagery that both showed off the garments and the city. Our make up artist Chereine Waddell creating a perfect look to bring our shoot THE editorial look.

Our girl was cosmopolitan glamazon. She works in a creative office in the city’s creative hub. Her office wardrobe doesn’t believe in monochrome. With that said I was really proud of my styling today. I was commended quite a lot. I am humbled as womenswear isn’t my forte as I still have a lot to learn. Enjoy some of the few behind the scenes shots.

  1. I’m loving colour blocking! Love the burnt orange and blue used together here. The shoot should be really interesting when it comes out 🙂 And as I also have orange hair, who is the girl to the right with bright orange hair – is it Chereine?

  2. oooh this looks uber busichic – I like the colours you’ve used – there definitely needs to be more colour in the workplace. nice work.
