Autumn Escape: Fashion Autumn 2023

Image source: IN Noosa Magazine

Travel and faraway places are on our mind as we settle into 2023 and I was inspired by bucket list locations and making memories for our autumn fashion editorial. Taking cues from street style in NYC, Paris and Rome,
I share with you some looks that are both aspirational and ready to wear. Each look in this spread is designed to take you someplace else. Think old school glamour of Hollywood (left) to colourful nights in Tokyo(page 88), blissful days in Byron (pages 84 & 85) and moments in the Mediterranean (page 90).  To truly evoke a sense of escapism we spent the day shooting fashion in one of the most romantic and secret places in the world – the magnificent Secrets On The Lake. Let’s get lost in fashion in the treetops of Montville!
