A fashion magpie born and raised in London, Sabi Datoo studied English and Drama and now works in the wonderful world of fashion. Lusting over anything from interiors to jewellery as long as it's unique, when you don't find her infront of a keyboard plying her trade as a freelance fashion writer then it's likely you'll find her sitting at a sewing machine and dreaming of Carrie's fashion-Narnia wardrobe or in a kitchen trying her hand at Chanel inspired cupcakes. With a personal wardrobe that drips with colour and glitter, Sabi hopes to wake up and be Holly Golightly for the day. Every day.

Styling it like a princess

Upon looking at this editorial for Revista Flash by Paulo Miguel Martins, we see how apt the title really is: Lost Little Princess. The King’s daughter wonders around her palace in the most regal and luxurious of fabrics; she’s being approached by a suitor tonight. Having tried a various amount of outfits, it isn’t her attire she is lost about, she’s not sure about him.…

Collapse, collide: lady in waiting

The editorial shoot by Wiktor Franko and Antonina Dolani for Confashion Magazine gives the notion of a female waiting at home for her beloved. She possesses a neutral yet longing expression; her surroundings are that of a complex and traditional home. Her body language suggests quite a bit of time has gone by; maybe he’s not coming back? She wears soft yet rich fabrics that…

Style you don’t want to mess with

There is a vast amount of oriental influence for spring 2013 and what better way to show it than to have an editorial with the styling expertise of Igor Oussenko & Eugene Ilina putting it all together. Not short of a strong aura coming off the page, this main fashion shoot is strong in colour and mood. With props like a sword or attacking body…

Sunshine and pure femininity

Soft and feminine and marshmallowy are the three words that spring to mind when looking at this beautiful series of photos by Fernando Gomez, an allover pretty shoot that defines what a woman should be and should be wearing this summer. Slipper satin pinks, blush nudes, and sheer lace with beading and threadwork; all words that define a womans wardrobe and all elements beautifully worked…

Beauty & details at Haizhen Wang Autumn / Winter 2013

Fashionising.com headed backstage to the Haizhen Wang autumn / winter 2013 show where we shadowed head make-up artist Yin Lee at AOFM Pro. As we approached the model in her hot seat, we noticed blue stripes strewn across her face; we took the liberty to ask what the inspiration behind this look was: “A tribal look with a modern twist, for example we are using…

Angelic bridalwear from Karen Willis Holmes

Wedding dresses, the one thing that every woman on the planet cannot help but swoon, smile and sometimes break out in hives over (the latter is an exaggeration). The Karen Willis Holmes 2013 campaign is by far the most fairy-tale evoking collection for next season. The bright whipped cream tulle cascading down into trains of all lengths remind us of those silent movies where costumes,…

Underwater love: The Spirit of Galatea

Joel Janse van Vuuren is a bit like Disney but with clothes. Even though this shoot is named The Spirit of Galatea, which refers to the Pygmalion’s statue in Greek Mythology that came to life, I would like to analyse it through my glitter filled eyes. Shot by Ilse Moore, who is much like God’s gift to fashion photography, the campaign is able to fast…
