Shades of Summer Fashion

Image source: IN Noosa Magazine

This Summer we are ready for sun, fun and socialising-  it calls for fashion that feels and looks good but is also functional. We have places to be and moments to make up for and our gorgeous garments need to work with our active Sunshine Coast lifestyle. 

I’ve sourced the best beach-to-bar vibes for this fashion editorial with
a focus on prints, patterns and pastels that sing summer to me. From the waves to the Wharf and the hills to Hinterland cafes whatever your shade of summer – we have you covered! 

Our local models Imika and Nick shine on the fashion pages of Hello Sunshine Magazine shot by the amazing Lauren Biggs in her studio with stunning hair and makeup by Justina Simone (who also features as a model in our story on floral art in this issue). 

I’ve also put together a jewellery edit showcasing the spectacular gems of our region. Inspired by Summer sunsets and the beauty of the coast you’ll need your shades for this dazzling display. Plus check out my top three Summer statement accessories – go bold or go home! 

Summer Love.
