Birthday Box


Ok so my birthday was some time ago now... but...

I recently received the most spot on (belated birthday) gift ever all thanks to one of the most amazingly thoughtful, considerate and caring friend/colleague....MISS EBAY!

Thank you... For not only knowing that I needed to repurchase my tool box after loosing a lonely wheel (Just between you and me ... I think she knew I kept "forgetting" my kit on shoots as it was no longer wheel-able) in THAT car crash on that hellish morning on our way to the Friends of Couture shoot ... but for also finding the EXACT same tool box (only betterera!) ... you made my day... just when I needed it most!

Seriously though, how could i call myself a stylist without my box of tools ey!?!?!

peace out,

Lainy

chin down, eyes to me, relax your mouth, tilt head, shift left, arch back.... skinny arm!

KUDOS...

to all the models out there... you (always have but forever will) have my respect and admiration... (peeps - while great models make it look easy - it really isn't !)

I recently found this out... when I unwillingly (I may have needed professional shots for something!) found myself in front of the camera ... AWKWARD!!!!! (kinda like an upside down baby turtle)

And

A big SHOUT OUT to the amazingly talented ladies who managed to make me look half decent...

Emily "EBAY" Abay - I really didn't give you much to work with... so THANK YOU - you truly are amazing! check out her really really ridiculously good work click here!

Monica Gingold - your application of make up skillz are incredible! your make up is freakin flawless... you are soooooo goddam good! Check out her prudy work here

It's always a pleasure working with you two... so thanking you again, I am forever grateful...


peace out

You can have anything you desire...

DESIRE - a collection of works from some of Australia's most talented fashion photographers.

While the worst hail storm in Melbourne's history may have delayed the opening night by exactly two weeks, it didn't stop it from going ahead!

Opening night was HOT! And I mean hot as in literally temperature hot. I arrived much too late to be fashionably late, to a sea of red faced creative types. Now I may have been sweltering hot due to a bad outfit choice, however, I believe the real problem was a thirst problem I was experiencing.. this being due to a shortage of cups and alcohol...

However, despite this hiccup, it was definitely worth the bother... the chosen photographer's respective interpretations of desire was truly inspiring....


Peeps in the hot room




Some of the work (the most visible being Amanda Fordyce beautiful picture of JJ in a pool of water.)


And below Daniel Luxford's submission - Running with the night.




It was an honor to have my own work (I styled Daniel Luxford's submission) included alongside this rockstar list of established and emerging talent...

PAUL WESTLAKE, JULIET TAYLOR, JAMES PIPINO, MICK BRUZZESE, AMBER TOMS, MICHELE ABOUD, TREVOR KING, MARNIE HADDAD, DANIEL LUXFORD, AMANDA FORDYCE, JO DUCK & JADE LEUNG, BEN SIMPSON, RENEE STAMATIS, AMELIA SOEGIJONO, PAUL BARBERA, JACLYN ADAMS, JESSICA KLINGELFUSS and NIRRIMI HAKANSON

For those of you who haven't had the visual pleasure as yet... you are in luck as Passion Victim's DESIRE exhibition, which was part of the 2010 LMFF program, has been extended until May 6th, so make sure you get somewhere quickly!
