Let’s Dance!

by cecylia on June 15, 2012

2 days ago I had the privilege of a lifetime. By privilege, it’s two fold: the most mouth-watering, gut-fulfilling luncheon complete with succulent grilled cheese, juicy chicken skewers, tender calamari and heavenly macaroons (yes as the photo would suggest, I’m the only one pigging out!) ; and the absolute honour to meet (and interview) the legendary Stevie Dance!

It’s not difficult to be mesmerized by the uber stylish lady, her incredible portfolio, and that grin. Having just arrived in Melbourne to work for the High Summer instalment of the GPO mag, style icon Stevie is surprisingly down-to-earth, and completely void of jet-lag. I couldn’t believe my eyes that the former editor of RUSSH Magazine and stylist-extraordinaire was sitting across the table from me! I still have pinch marks on the knees.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stevie Dance now calls New York her ‘second home’, where she spends all of her creative energy freelancing as a stylist for clients and publications. The contributing editor for OYSTER, Stevie recently launched her own online store ‘SHOP GHOST‘, an absolute visit for style lovers. She admits to being a workaholic, working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Guess that’s what happens when you’re ridiculously talented and are completely devoted to your work.

As we nibbled on choice crusts, Stevie revealed some of her favourite things. She loves bike-riding, wearing denim and enjoying Japanese food. Her favourite Australian designers are Lover and Josh Goot, favourite internationals include Dries Van Noten and Jil Sander. Oh and she loves shopping for jeans at ACNE.

Stevie won’t be in Melbourne for long, and will be flitting back to NY for more exciting projects. Check out her incredible work at GPO as well as her website. And in the meantime, I’ll keep massaging those pinch marks.

Where: Ca de Vin

Wear: Jil Sander dress, Chanel earrings, vintage brooch
