Hello lovers!

The world of vintage fashion has exploded over the past few years and I absolutely love it. I come from an area thats hip, grungy, gritty, eco and full of culture. I won’t deny that this has certainly influenced my appreciation for all things old and vintage. If you come over the my house, you’ll notice it too is old and most of all the furniture thats in it is vintage and retro. Yes it’s indeed an acquired taste but the beautiful thing about vintage is the quality is unmatched, the pieces are one of a kind and it also means that fashionistas around the world can wear a piece that has’t been mass produced.

As owner of Mode Madison – an online vintage store, I didn’t just want to handpick my garments and list them online for you to buy & own. I also wanted to create a visual experience by showing you how amazing each and every piece can look on everyday women. So when you log on to, you will see that not only is each gorgeous girl featured on my website in a Mode Madison garment but she’s either also been personally styled or photographed by me, if not both. Our lookbooks featuring a diversity of women is also available if you are ever looking for some style inspiration. Adding to these personal touches, I invited Busola Coutts from The Fashion Stir Fry to collaborate with me and show the world how to style a piece from the collection. I was of course overwhelmed with excitement when she said yes.

Busola had no idea what I was sending her but I was confident that she would do it justice. She has an amazing, creative & colourful fashion sense. Once more she’s full of personality, engaging, insightful and confident. From the moment, we met on Instagram – yes Instagram, I fell in love with her style and contagious smile. Although having only blogged since March last year, this beautiful momma of 1 that comes all the way from Toronto, Canada has an enormous following on all her social media channels. She really is an inspiration and I feel very honoured to have her rocking our ‘Dance with Me’ dress. Head over to her blog now to read more about how she’s styled this piece and even better join the amazing community of bloggers that she has going.

Make sure you also head over to Mode Madison to see more our collection. Finally don’t forget, we are alway looking for collaborators so please get in touch if you are interested.

Thanks for reading all.

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.

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.

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.
