ALIAS MAE X SAMARTIS AND DUCKER COLLABORATION

THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN WORKING WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE. THIS WAS A CREATIVE COLLABORATION BETWEEN TWO HOUSES; ALIAS MAE SHOES, AND THE NEW SAMARTIS AND DUCKER STUDIO THAT IS ONE HALF OWNED BY PHOTOGRAPHER NIC SAMARTIS. THE LUXURY STUDIO IS HIS NEW BABY THAT CATERS TO ALL THE NEEDS OF HIS CELEBRITY CLIENTS, INCLUDING PERSONALISED CELLULAR IPADS FOR GUESTS DISPOSAL. WE HAD CHAMPAGNE AND NIBBLES AND ALL THINGS DECADENTLY SUPERMODEL TO CARRY US INTO THE NIGHT WHILE WE ROCK AND ROLLED AND PLAYED TO THE CAMERA. ERIN SHAW BRUSHED OUR HAIRS, WHO'S PERSONAL WORK INCLUDES THE LIKES OF KATE MOSS; AND CLAIRE TOMPSON WORKED WONDERS WITH HER BRUSHES ON OUR FACES, ALL IN THE NAME OF FUN AND ALIAS MAE SHOES NEW AW14 COLLECTION. I AM IN LOVE WITH THE BLACK SHINY CROCODILE TILLIE BOOT.

PAGES DIGITAL X THE GLOW

TOTAL. GIRL. POWER. 
IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE AND BREEZE COLLABORATING WITH THE EVER TALENTED KARLA MAJNARIC AND KATE FLETCHER, THE THREE OF US JOINED FORCES TO PRODUCE THIS BEAUTY EDITORIAL FOR PAGES DIGITAL, TITLED 'THE GLOW'. APTLY NAMED, I WAS COVERED IN GOLD EMULSION BEFORE DRESSING MYSELF IN SHIMMERY LOOKS, FROM THE PERFECT PARTY DRESS, TO COMFY LOUNGE JUMPER, AND THE ULTIMATE LEATHER JACKET.  I MUST GIVE AN HONOURABLE  MENTION AND THANK YOU TO SCANDIZZO SALON FOR COMPLETELY BLEACHING OUT AND THEN RETURNING MY EYEBROWS TO THEIR NATURAL STATE. IT'S NO MEAN FEAT, AND IT TAKES AN EXCEPTIONAL AMOUNT OF PATIENCE.
