Nature is so very often used as a source of profound inspiration amongst not only designers but artists alike, including myself. There is one such Australian designer however who could be recognised as both designer and artist, sculpting leather, neoprene and silk into detailed masterpieces inspired by all that mother nature has to offer. I’m excited to share with you a personal editorial in celebration of designer Dion Lee and the launch of his newly launched online store. There is no limit to what man and nature can achieve together..

The perfect bra, I’m dying to put some mileage on this little baby. You can snap it up … here.. x
No matter where I am I seem to be able to shake sand particles from my hair, something people would normally pay good money for! I think it must be genetic, but sand and salt air seem to flow through my veins. Can I also blame genetics on an unhealthy obsession with shoes, having thoughts of selling non-essential organs in certain situations to appease the addiction?.. One would hope so … So as a lover of shoes and the beach combined it’s only natural that I have to honestly divulge that in my wardrobe of Chloe and Givenchy ankle boots sits a buttery collection of Havaianas.. the perfect solution to post Fashion Week foot recovery.
So to celebrate summer and SS 2014 I headed off to one of my favourite locations in all the world to relax and unwind. I’m going to share with you a secret, a hidden location… a hideaway where I spent all of my family holidays .. Fraser Island to be precise, the largest sand island in the world (a salty hair lovers paradise).
With the bare essentials packed and Havi’s of course in toe (pardon the pun) it’s time to get lost. As a wise man once said..”When discovering a new direction, loose control for a fresh start then you will discover the fire in your heart”..
Somewhere in the mind of creative genius Marc Jacobs lives a jet black fantasy land of magical nymphs robed in enormous feather headresses and crystal embellished mesh cat suits, something only a lucid dreamer may conjure. A career highlight to date, I was lucky enough while in Paris to attend the Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2014 show. A fully operational carousel, fountain, elevators and escalators being Marc Jacobs last show for Louis Vuitton left spectators like myself emotionally uplifted and close to tears of joy. Congratulations Marc, ‘c’est magnifique’ I’m sure Mr Vuitton would be overjoyed.. xx
One can never own too many back packs, especially if you do as much travelling as I have lately. The best of affordable options that I’ve come across lately, these little numbers are the perfect travel companion. Hit the link and put chaw back intoit..x
There’s something magical about packing for a holiday, sometimes I even wonder whether it’s the anticipation itself that’s the best part. Since I’m about to head to location where clothing can be optional (don’t worry I’ve packed plenty accessories to make up for it) here’s a little heads up on my suitcase essentials..stay tuned for more .. xx
Currently girl crushing on Sasha Luss, model in demand and blue-eyed babe..
Whoever was it that said ‘Party at the front, business at the back’? I’m sure the suggestion had our best interests in mind but who says you can’t party at the back as well or vice versa? I know I’m not the first one to wear a favourite tank in reverse but on the search for the perfect racer front tank why not start in your own wardrobe, you just never know what you might find.. x
Empty swimming pools, fanta and palm trees. Loving this exclusive post for Oracle Fox by our friend Ulrich Knoblauch.. you always know how to get us excited for summer…
Once upon a time I must admit that I knew this girl who may or may not have had an unhealthy obsession with feathers. I know that she’d blame it on an early childhood figure skating career of plume encrusted leotard uniforms thanks to a DIY mum with too much spare time on her hands. Nowadays all that glamour…
Do you remember the days that you rode a BMX to school or stole your dad’s shirt because everything that you owned was too girly? If you’re answering no then I fear that you’re in the wrong place…
As you know I’ve been a little awol lately but if you’ve been following me on my instagram you’ll know that I’ve been in Paris attending the Spring Summer 2014 shows…
