Sonya Kraan Jacket Dress/ Tom Gunn Brogues /Paula Walden Rings

One of my latest styling works featured on Fashionising

In antiquity, the estate of a Lord was left in complete charge of his wife, the Lady, not to the head male servant, contrary to common belief. Hence she had be learned, have discernment and still embody the splendour of the estate. This was the lady Karen and I envisioned. I was inspired by Proverbs 31: 10-31 about a wife who is wise, capable, and in full control of her household. We have long wanted to collaborate again. But it wasn’t until we found the perfect model, Louisa Kitchin, that our plans came into fruition. I pulled pieces from a myriad of talented Australian designers and labels including Habbot, Hopeless Lingerie, Kathryn Beker, Livia Arena, Neo Dia, Paula Walden, Sarah Conners, Sonya Kraan and Tom Gunn, as well as London shoe label Angeline Lee. And we are proud to present: Lady of the Manor.
