MBB + Highpoint + Samantha Harris!

Finally the Western suburbs will have their very own "high fashion offering" with David Jones! Highpoint Shopping Centre invited my team to help them launch their redevelopment, including the to-come "DJs" and 100 shiny new stores, which will be completed in 2013.

Stylist Philip Boon hosted the event and lent his fashionable eye, while photographer Christian Blanchard showed shoppers how a fashion photoshoot really comes alive right on stage (with a little pre-prepared magic backstage of course). I've taken some behind the scenes shots as we worked with make-up artists from Highpoint's own Napoleon Perdis alongside stylist from Xiang Hair. Best of all (the "highpoint" if you will), the launch led to meeting David Jones' Youth Ambassador, the super-gorgeous (potentially even more gorgeous than I) Samantha Harris alongside fellow model beauties Nikki Thot and Jia-Li Woo from FRM.

We got to style and shoot the ladies in some lush Kirrily Johnston pieces and jewellery and introduce a couple of emerging RMIT designers; the talented Elissa Ferro and Georgia Havekotte. Video and results of the launch coming soon...

Hanging around with supermodels is a perk of this job.

Some great pieces (utilising magnets) by Georgia Havekotte. 

Kirrily Johnston's killer pieces are a pleasure to work with.

It's all about the bright lip this season apparently.

Some inspiration.

From humble beginnings...

...comes a peek into the future (as Christian and his team ponder the impending live photoshoot).
