“Fashion is the armour
to survive the reality of everyday life.”
– Bill Cunningham
One of my great inspirations in photography and energy for life has recently passed away… the great New York Times street style photographer – Bill Cunningham, so in keeping with his favourite shade of Blue this one is for him.
There are some things which are grounding, despite the circumstances.
For me this simple dress is one of them.
I picked it up in London on my last trip as a gift from my boyfriend.
We got if from a store called Joy which was a favourite of mine the first time I lived in London in 2008,
The print reminds me of Chinese blue porcelain art, the colour is my favourite shade of blue.
The mix of feminine, 80’s, yet totally practical style gives me comfort and confidence.
I’ve worn if so many times in Brisbane, Sydney, London,
to job interviews, dinners, dates, photo shoots and more.
Something about the combination of all these experiences grounds me and lifts me up when I need it.
