Georgia Graham is one of my favourite new girls Down Under at the moment. Having had a nice little debut season in Paris walking for the industry’s current golden boy Jaquemus and in King Karl’s supermarket sweep at Chanel. This 6 foot beauty is one of the most polite, well spoken and intelligent girls thanks to her well travelled youth and interest in the finer things in life. Currently studying French and Art History at University in Sydney her next stop is Paris in July for Couture and no doubt a billboard near you soon.

Who knew that all you really need is great pair of jeans and an equally amazing downtown loft to make magic happen? Last Friday Nobody asked me to style a few looks as part of an ongoing collaboration with online content creators for their AW collection. It took 4 girls, 4 (HUGE) flights of stairs and 4 pairs of jeans et Voila!

There is only one thing better than a man with manners and that is a man with manners and talent. Nicolas Ghesquière proved today that you dont have to be loud to be heard with this very discreet and simple letter of thanks to his audience, staff and those who have gone before him. His sincerity, gratitude and respect are two beautiful qualities that go well beyond this piece of paper, and could be behind the success of this incredible collection. Viva la Vuitton!!

Spring is officially in stores even if it is still below zero here in New York and all I seem to be craving is the perfect slouchy silk shorts suit to wear with a nice heavy pair of sandals, a scrunched sleeve and a Ray Ban wayfarer in the best 80′s way possible. #BRINGONSUMMMER

With fashion month well under way and an insane influx of new information being thrust around left right and centre, it can be a little overwhelming and a time when one can feel like grand gestures are the only thing called for to keep up with the Jones’. In this new age where even luxury fashion has become a somewhat seasonal, throw away ideology, its time to take a long hard look in the mirror and remember that intelligence, education, manners, style, taste, confidence and a little old fashioned grooming are some of the more important things a woman should make time for in life. One of my favourite sensory finishes is fragrance, one of the most subtle ways to be noticed and remembered without a word spoken.
