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....

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!
