A Big Happy Hello from Italy,
I have wanted to share this story which combined two loves for me, Italy and Collette Dinnigan.
When Harpers Bazaar phoned asking me whether I would like to shoot Collette in Rome I couldn’t say yes quick enough.
I purchased my first Collette Dinnigan piece in my late twenties and have never managed to let it go. Each time I put on something of Collette’s it made me feel special, the touch of the beautiful fabrics, the crafting and styling of the garment and the femininity she puts into everything she does. For me it was art.
It was an exciting shoot for me for all these reasons, meeting a hero in a place you love, with a beautiful backdrop and her gorgeous husband to boot.
Collette was gorgeous and what a dream to shoot her in Fendi and a beautiful vintage find.
For those who weren’t in Australia and unable to purchase the magazine here is a little snapshot of what we got up to.
Mega thanks to Harpers, the beautiful and kind Collette, hubby and family..
I hope you enjoy it.
PS: I have a couple of photo shoots available for October if you are in Paris. You can read more here
