Summer Fashion: Fresh Feels

Image source: Photographer Kym Burmester

Endless summer daydreaming led us to a wistful, bohemian-inspired fashion shoot at the gorgeous Palm Creek Estate. 

Freedom and flow formed the foundation for our garments and jewels sourced from local boutiques and makers. Taking direction from nature we played with natural fibres, earthly textures and elements to create looks that interconnect or models with the beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland. 

Get back to nature this summer!
