"But first, coffee" 










Wearing outfit by Sophie Renders Allen & Jeffery Campbell shoes.

Over the weekend I did my photo shoot for my "wool range" which is called "But first, coffee".  I am very happy with the photos, they turned out just how I had imagined.   Everything fell into place, the location, the model and the outfit.

The brief was to make an outfit that consisted of at least 60% wool and had to full into either one of these categories, street wear, corporate wear, race wear, day wear or theatrical. The blazer and shorts are made out of 100% wool which I got from Davisha and the shirt is chiffon. I deliberately used the chiffon to break up the wool and to add another texture. I love the cheeky style cut of the shorts which are completely studded with over 300 studs.

My outfit is designed for the "street wear" category, think of New York Fashion week or strolling down Chapel St. in Melbourne. I wanted a modern, slightly futuristic look that was still wearable. The white and gold helped to achieve this look. I would love to know what you all think!
