In the Line of Fire

Last week I was granted exclusive access to document the fittings for Fashion Palette, a bi-annual fashion event which showcases established and up & coming Australian design talent. Amongst the collective of designers featured in the show were Nicola Finetti, Akira Isogawa, Leona Edmiston, Bettina Liano, Twofolded, Chiquita Searle, and Galanni. Priscillas Model Management in Sydney held exclusive rights to the twenty or so models featured in the Fashion Palette spectacle. Amidst the frenetic buzz of activity, I managed to steal a quiet moment or two with most of the models in attendance for a brief intro and to take some candid polaroids. I have long been a fan of casting polaroids as it affords the opportunity to capture models in their natural state with minimal make-up, styling, and without too much direction on the photographer's part. Whilst all of the girls were beautiful in their own distinct way, I was particularly blown away by the commanding presence of seventeen year old Australian newcomer Breanna Green from Newcastle, who has only been modelling part-time for the past 8 months. Equally impressive were the international contingent of models which included American Ciara Turner, the beguiling Maori/French beauty Yasmin Bidois, and established Dutch runway goddess Nicole Hofman.
