May Heaven - Some Magazine publication

As there is neither summer nor autumn outside I decided to move back to my favourite time of the year - Spring time :) It was April, the weather was great. I felt fully inspired to do some pretty blooming shoot. Having a great team of photographer - Vendula Pribylova , make up artist - Carlo Di Caterino and a lovely and stunning model - Abigail from Oxygen Model Management we started preparations.

As the theme wasn't particularly specified I decided to use some of the great pieces from the latest A/W 2011/12 collections of clients of H.PR agency.

As a location we chose one of the beautiful blooming London parks, where we set up and started shooting.

Styling Kit - ready

Inside the Sass and Bide Australian HQ

Above is the entrance to the Sass and Bide design studio in Alexandria, Sydney. 

I recently returned after a two week placement with the company. Assisting in the graphics and website design department as well as working with the head designer on next seasons prints.

Out of all the locations I have worked in this was the hardest to find. Hidden at the back of an industrial site amongst other fashion and T.V studios with continental cafes squeezed in between the concrete buildings.

The atmosphere of the place was fantastic to be in. Friendly and efficient are the key words I would use. None of that pretentious disorganised chaos I have found in other European studios.

Below are some pictures I managed to take within the studio.

This sculpture was the original idea for one of their new prints as well as their current main webpage.

The image above was taken in their basement. A place were all their in store VM items are produced. As well as props I believe used in the fashion shows as well as for inspiration.

Above is the sign for the entrance to one the Sass and Bide stores in Victoria Mall, Sydney.

This was the interior. A lot of the VM for the stores is based on key sculptures that represent the mood/theme of the current collection.

Beautiful Bottoms - A/W 11 Look Book

The Autumn/Winter 2011 season is already on the go with many brands already launching their new look books. The lingerie brand, Beautiful bottoms, being one of them I thought it is about time we started blogging on lingerie designs!

This brand uses subtle feminine prints on light, floaty fabrics on beautifully simple cuts that work on any skin or body type. Beautiful bottoms have created the perfect recipe for lingerie.

Below are images from their A/W 11 look book.

Sass and Bide internship

I'm currently working in the design studios of Sass and Bide HQ in Sydney.

It's a great atmosphere here. I find it's the most relaxing and welcoming place I have interned at so far. It's fantastic they can produce beautiful pieces without that cut throat vibe that some studios have.

They are current;ly launching next seasons collection into their stores in Australia and I believe in London as well. Vibrant magnetas and hot oranges are some of the key colours, mixed wioth contemporary aboriginal rpints on suede and chiffons.

My clown :)))

On Saturday 4th of June 2011, the Illamasqua Flagship Store, in the heart of West End at 20 Beak Street was transformed into an otherworldly and extravagant clown workshop. This interactive playful event was organised to encourage people to embrace carefree self- expression. 

The event was held in support of The S.O.P.H.I.E Lancaster Foundation, a charity close to Illamaqua's heart. Working to combat prejudice, intolerance and hatred amongst young people, 10% proceeds raised during the event was donated to the Foundation.

As a brand that actively encourages self-expression in every form, Illamasqua’s professional, colour-true make-up were the tools and colour palette to create people’s clowns, together with the help of Illamasqua’s talented team of make-up artists.

I brought out my inner child and became my own clown :)) that was fun!!!

My friend Simone and her clown :)


Being a part of My Clown made me feel really happy. It was a great workshop helping us to embrace our individuality, because to celebrate and have fun you just need to have yourself as beautiful and unique as you are, and there is only one person like in the entire world. :)))
