Cannot believe it is less than 2 weeks until Christmas! WHAT? So much to do, I love this time of the year and all the family, friends and festivities it brings. Around the end of October I assisted the wonderful Lucy Rice on a fashion/beauty shoot up at North Head. The amazing Elise Wilson did the hair and makeup and I did a bit of behind the scenes shooting. Check out the gorgeous Ruby Rose from Clyne! See Lucy's photos from this shoot here!
P.S. Do you like my beautiful new blog banner? My lovely, creative friend Suzi drew it for me. What a star! xx

On Tuesday night I had the privilege of photographing for my talented friend Joel Williams at the Summer 11/12 Party for his clothing label: Brooklyn Zoo. It was an fabulous, exclusive affair at No. 1 High Street full of good-looking people and 'stars' like Drew Neemia, Shannon Ryan, J. Williams and Colin Mathura-Jeffree. Coney Island, The Nickel Empire Collection is full of rich and raw designs, mixing materials like organic cotton, plum leather, velvet and merino. Brooklyn Zoo draws inspiration from the 20's, 30's and early 90's in New York. The Empire State's form, design, urban terrain, slang and culture influence the stunning collection. The party included complimentary VnC Cocktails, performances from talented musicians the Brooklyn Trio and Jesse Sheehan, some creepy clowns, an amazing runway show and plenty of good times. I had so much fun attending it and cannot wait to see what's next for the label! Brooklyn Zoo Clothing is available for purchase here. The make-up for the show was done by the lovely Rebekah Banks and the jewelry is by Culet.

I just realized after all my Fashion Week posts from this year's NZFW I haven't shared my Fashion Weekend shots with you! While NZFW is a trade event, Fashion Weekend opens its doors to the public with an amazing line-up of music performances, seminars, runway shows and events and the Designer Garage Sale. I actually attended the Saturday of Fashion Weekend this year rather than been on the Photography Crew, however I was able to photograph a few of the shows they had, some from my seat and some from the Photo pit. I just took my Nikon D90, which was a little lighter to carry around than my other camera in my bag. It was nice being a guest and experiencing shows from that point of view. I must say however, that I find it much more exciting photographing the shows, and the photographers totally have the best view!
They had quite a few performances in between and throughout the shows, which was very entertaining!
These photos are from the Walk the Line fashion show, organised by the YMCA North Shore Raise up n Represent Crew. It was a combined competition/fashion show, featuring 48 young (school age) designers.
A few of the Fashion Week Newspapers, Guide and my Photography passes for the Week! Was amazing!
