Hello lovers

I have held these particular images quite close. Whilst snippets have appeared here and there, many of you who visit my blog have yet to see them. I’ve waited for Mode Madison to launch. And well this day has finally arrived.

This collaboration in particular is special as it was the first time I was able to style models for a shoot as opposed to styling myself. The beautiful Amrita pictured truly did this photoshoot justice with the help of our talented photographer, and Hair and Makeup artist.

Special thanks to this wonderful team for producing this gorgeous vintage glamour photoshoot.

HUSH – BEHIND THE SCENES

Hello everyone

Without giving away too much, I have been working with local photographers, makeup artists, models and retailers as the fashion stylist to bring forward a gorgeous vintage themed spring racing campaign.

Due to launch in late July I wanted to share with you a behind the scenes preview.

Set in a warehouse conversion, this photoshoot reminds me so much of Mad Men. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by.

ANTICIPATION

How much do you want it? This is a question that I’m always asking myself.

Over the span of my career, the opportunities I’ve been fortunate to have are the ones that I’ve had to work really hard to get. The more I want it, the harder I’ll work for it. An attitude that I sincerly thank my parents for.

It should therefore be no surprise that I’ve made the dream of becoming a stylist,  blogger and vintage seller come to life.

In the lead up to the launch on my e-boutique,  Mode Madison, I’ve been working with talented artists to produce a portfolio of photographs. Some of which will form part of my new website which I can’t wait to show each and everyone of you.

So much planning, work and effort goes into the production behind fashion photography even on a small scale. It’s therefore only fair that you get to see some of the amazing results when a photographer,  stylist, hair and makeup artist and models collaborate. Introducing the first of our 2 models from our recent vintage glamour phoot at Werribee Mansion.

I hope that you love these as much as I do.

Sovanny xx

FAIRYTALE

Hello all

Late last week I revealed via Facebook that I’ll be launching my very own business. It’s a risk but one I am willing to take in order to finally pursue a profession in fashion and styling.

Prior to its launch, I’ve been quietly working behind the scenes to pull it all together. Needless to say, I love my new job and collaborating with other artists to make it all happen. The beauty about all of this is the opportunity to meet new people and promote local businesses and artist.

Set like a fairytale, here’s a behind the scenes preview of a collaboration that took place over the Queens Birthday holiday. Professional images and more details to follow.

I’M A BARBIE GIRL

My daughter may have been a little excited by the life size Barbie

Hello and goodbye to another weekend!

A few weeks ago, my ever so sweet bestfriend who has never owned a barbie in her life decides she wants a barbie themed party. I literally raised my eyebrows, cringe a little and then got over it, because if thats whats she wants then lets! Leading up to the day, I went to my Instagram followers to help make a decision on my choice of wig (white or blue) because lets face it, my short hair isn’t going to cut the Barbie look. I also knew that I didn’t have the option of buying a new outfit for the party, so I rummaged around in my wardrobe for something cute, fitted and pink. I seriously struggled with pink because it’s not my colour. My colour, is shades of black, grey and white. But somehow, Barbie was born….Platinum Barbie. What do you think of this little costume? Admittedly, I have never ever played dress up for a party before so after decades on earth, I suddenly realised what I have been missing out on all these years. The party was so much fun and it helped that everyone was such a good sport on the night.

Outfit breakdown  Black and white stripe playsuit by ASOS | Fuchsia Coat by Grass Collected | Tan Pumps by Zara | Light pink clutch by Coach

Hope you love this look inspired by Barbie and as always thanks so much for reading my post. Sovanny x
