Last month I got to style the Bizarre Bazaar Emerging Designer Market campaign. At my fingers tips I had fresh meat - yea I said it - just like seeing the new girl at school and wanting to befriend her straight away, I was that girl to the collections and I couldn't wait to see what I could create with the loads of patterns and textures of the pieces. This is what I came up with, pairing it all back with some of your favourite brands on the high-street.

The team did so well considering we did shoot this on a cold and gloomy day at the abandoned parts of the old Mental institution in Rozelle. On a side note oddly enough it is partly converted into the Sydney college of the Arts - how very avant grade, how very fitting. I will admit I found it hard to walk back and forth by myself in the buildings where some pieces of furniture, bath tubs and name tags still remained - it. was. whack. Thankfully dodged shooting in the locked up 'May contain Asbestos' building that the security guard thought we'd like to shoot in - ahhh no thanks mate. All in all the team was stellar! Thanks Bex Cook for your talent behind the lens, Lauren Bhatt for being so great at Makeup, Kiss & Makeup by Caite for the hairstyling, the twin models - Ellie and Amelia Chapman for being amazingly alike and the man behind it all Chris McLaren for your incredible vision and support for these emerging designers.
And one last Thankyou for all the great designers and PR people - especially Zo at the PR dept and Katrina from The Pr Gals you guys are phenomenal!
