Me & You

October 10, 2016

Latest edition to add to my styling portfolio, this magnificent and emotive black and white story shot by Justin Polkey for Fashion Gone Rouge featuring models Alena Blohm and Bryce Thompson in exclusive Calvin Klein apparel.

Justin and I collabrated on the art direction and opted to keep the story classic Calvin Klein. Nineties minimalism, clean lines and horizons, barely there make up and tousled tresses crafted by hair and make up artist Anja Fichtenmayer.

Old Mac Daddy

November 16, 2015


There’s nothing quite like escaping a week of madness like a trip out into the countryside.
Old Mac Daddy in Elgin is my go-to spot, it’s only an hour out of town and has the perfect balance of comfort and nature. (But more about Old Mac Daddy in tomorrow’s blog post.)

It was still a little chilly in the early mornings and late evenings out in the country side so I made sure to pack some warmer items. My striped poncho was the perfect comfort item to cuddle up in next to the fire or throw on for my morning walks amongst the fynbos and apple orchards.

Berlin Wall

September 17, 2015

MLIP_Berlin wall_241 copy

I’ve always wanted to visit The Berlin Wall ever since I first watched Pink Floyd’s The Wall film as a little girl. Rodger Waters, along with David Lynch, has to be my favourite creative of all time.

The East Side Gallery, where we shot this look post, is a 1,3km international memorial for freedom that was established in 1990. The East Side Gallery is still the only authentic monument of reunification in the last 20 years.

Apart from Pink Floyd’s The Wall design (who I can’t seem to find out who actually painted it) I love Christine Kühn’s Touch the Wall with all the blue handprints.

Have any of you visited the Berlin Wall and if so which design was your favourite?
