I had the great pleasure of recently shooting with the Telegraph’s Sunday Style Magazine where they highlighted my many different hats as the ultimate ‘slashie’ from Photographer, Blogger and Model.  Was so much fun playing all my different roles in one!

With the recent MET Gala, PUNK: Chaos to Couture, it got me thinking about the ethos of punk.

In this commercialized world of fashion where what’s ‘in’ and what’s ‘out’ is dictated to us by so many forces, it is easy to get caught up in an obsession of wearing the latest trends.  There is fear that with so many proverbial eyes on us, one may feel like they are trying too hard if they stand out.  When I think about what punk is in a modern sense relating to fashion, I instantly go to women who push the boundaries and consistently dress for themselves as an expression of their creativity, regardless of the social pressures to conform; women who march to the beat of their own drum!

Tess Yopp, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Ulyana Sergeenko and Michelle Violy Harper aren’t necessarily punk in our traditional understanding with piercings and Mohawks, athough they use clothing as a way of making a statement which is very much the ethos of  punk.

Welcome to SYDNEY!!!!  I woke up in Sydney for day 1 of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia to the iconic centrepoint tower glowing just past Hyde park, Sydney was certainly turning it on for us today.

The week kicked off with a bang with Camilla and Marc’s 10 year anniversary celebration show.   I ran backstage to wish them luck before the show and both Camilla and myself were decked out in (almost) matching all-white ensembles. The duo seemed calm and collected as they breezed their way through interviews, stopping for a quick chat and a polaroid with me.

I first met model, DJ and blogger Bip Ling at London fashion Week in 2010. She was wearing mismatching socks, a school pinafore and a little backpack and from that minute I totally fell in love with shooting Bip and her boundless energy.

This season, New York Fashion Week was possibly the coldest yet.  I know I have said it before, although it was seriously freezing.

Within 36 hours, I flew from sunny Australia to London, to basically drop my bikinis and sun dresses and replace the space with anything that looked warm,  then headed back to the airport onwards to NY to arrive in a blizzard.  SO I went from hot summer swims to NYC’s Super snow storm  ‘Nemo’ …  The first day I wore 6 pairs of Uniqlo heat tech layers and… I may have cried.  When it is THAT cold, I always think the best way to hide the fact that you are wearing 18 layers of clothing and near freezing to death is with a fun pop of colour!This Hockley London snood and mittens are my favourite thing I’ve worn this season.

It’s as if she went into her dad’s closet and pulled out his much loved trench coat, picked up her boyfriend’s Guns n’ Roses T shirt off the floor and then put on her favourite vintage hat, on the way out the door.

I’m really in love with wearing mens clothes at the moment ( I blame you Phoebe Philo!).  This morning I threw on my husbands coat to run to the shops to buy coffee and there was something so romantic about being engulfed in a big warm coat whilst still wearing my skinny jeans and brogues.

Here are some more of my favourites from London Fashion  week.

I’ve just arrived in London for Fashion Week. I know dear blog gods, I have been bad… very, very bad… although I just got married, so please forgive me!

New York Fashion Week was a whirlwind of shows in between blizzards in below freezing temperatures with lots of snow!  Although, you know what I love about New York City girls, despite all this,  they really know how to have fun.  Insert Lily Kwong and Preetma Singh, two of my favourite NY girls.

Before the snow starts to fall this Winter, I love to get out my bare legs.  Even if they debut only from the taxi to the restaurant, there is something quite liberating about wearing nothing on your legs during the dead of Winter.

PINK isn’t a colour that usually screams chic.  That is not to say that I do not love it.  When I was 13 I made a pact with myself that I would wear at least one item of pink daily for inner peace and happiness.  Seriously.

Although these days I generally associate pink with toddlers or teens in juicy couture sweats. So I was pleased to see that this season, my favourite fashion girls, from Emily Weiss to Susie Bubble, were working many wonderful shades of pink during Paris fashion week.  Super chic.

I love this outfit I wore to the SS13 Alexander Wang show at NYFW.

There are so many textures in this look with Vinyl (which was rather serendipitous as it started pouring with rain as we stepped out of the show!) leather, suede and lace.  I also love that somehow, even though all the shades of plum and burgundy are different, they all  work together.
