Emerging faces: Steph

For Kelly Defina‘s test shoot of Volta Models’ fresh face Steph, it was immediately obvious which feature the shots should play to: her hair. With a cascade of long hair like a modern-day Lady Godiva, how could any photographer resist the endless opportunities for movement; for suspending in time those shifting strands?

That curtain of long locks coupled with Defina’s shadowy photography gives the whole shoot an air of mystery, while Steph’s ability to pose fluidly and naturally takes the elegantly simple black and white swimwear concept to another level.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
