Entry by invitation only

Lingerie, blindfolds, masks and tuxedo jackets. If the grand setting of winding staircases, opulent tiling and pillared halls doesn’t send your mind careening back to Stanley Kubrick’s 1999 film Eyes Wide Shut, the perhaps the styling by Andrew Zumbo will. It does for me, anyway. There’s a subtle fetishism to Mariah Jelena’s shoot, titled Invitation Only. Twin models Maddie and Thierney are mirror images of each other which adds a lightly surreal twist to the scenario; and you’re given the feeling that this invitation-only party is one populated by uniform sensual blondes, there to be seen not heard.

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.
