MILAN FASHION WEEK : BACKSTAGE SNAPS


MILAN FASHION WEEK SPRING SUMMER 2015 BACK STAGE PHOTOS


There’s something that I love about seeing beautiful, wafty models, enclosed within the confines of the backstage walls at International Fashion Weeks.

Back stage photographers give an outsider, an insiders view. Extremely mundane human tasks such as standing around looking bored, staring blankly at a wall or perusing Instagram on a small phone screen become the most amazing things that must be captured on film.

It’s like seeing a unicorn graze on cigarettes and diet coke. Who wouldn’t want a photo of that.

Today was the first day of Spring, and it was truly glorious.

After yesterdays trans seasonal dressing post, I awoke to a mildy warm morning, warm being a balmy 17 degrees. It’s funny that when we reach the beginning of Spring, a 17 degree morning is cause for dusting off your sandals. At the other end of the year, Autumn rears it’s ugly head and as soon as temps dip below 20 degrees, we’re whining that it’s cold and we’re reaching for our hoodies.

Today I left my house, jacket-less, in a thin white t-shirt and I felt free, liberated and only slightly uncomfortably cold.

JUST BE COOL


Be Cool


 It’s finally here, the last day of Winter, well technically as I write this, it’s the last hour of Winter. And after a beautifully warm Winter day, my apartment is already slightly, uncomfortably warm. I’m officially terrified for the heatwave that is Summer to cook me to a very sweaty and uncomfortable crisp.

Until then, tomorrow marks phase one of trans seasonal dressing.

Without really knowing if the days are going to hot, cold or lukewarm, my clothing options are without a doubt going to become slightly confused over the next few weeks. I’m talking beanies with t-shirts and coats with sandals confused. This phase is mostly spent feeling too cold to take layers off, but too warm to have any extra on.

The timing of phase two really varies depending when we have that first really unseasonably warm day. The day that causes girls everywhere to think “I could be wearing shorts today.” What happens next? A false sense of security that fools you into pulling out their denim cut offs only to spend a few extremely uncomfortable days being unnecessarily cold.

The third and final phase? That glorious day when you pull on your bikini for the first time in 9 months, dip your toes into the crystal clear ocean, only to go running and screaming away from the freezing cold torture that is the ocean in spring.

By then, the sweaty, humidity of Summer will be welcomed with open arms.

While moonlighting as a beginner blogger, my current day job is working in the Design Team for Australian label Jigsaw Clothing.

As with most established labels there will always come a time to make a change. In Jigsaw’s case we are making a change to align ourselves more with our slightly cooler older Sister Jigsaw UK, well known for supplying the UK with cool relaxed silhouettes and luxurious fabrics and prints for the last few decades.

Jigsaw Clothing Australia currently caters to all your workwear, tailoring and occasion needs and our SS14 collection offers all that and more. Smart day and casual wear are making a come back at Jigsaw where we are resuscitating our denim range.

Additionally we continue our homage to Jigsaw’s motherland with our work with Liberty’s of London, providing Australia with a touch of England in the form of their signature prints.

Above is a sneak peek of our SS14 campaign, set to officially launch at the beginning of August.
