In the hands of The Fates

Are we in charge of our own fate? Or is there someone, some white-robed shadow, tugging on the strings of our destiny and deciding the course of our lives?

In Greek Mythology the Moirai were destiny incarnate, three fates controlling the thread of every mortal life from birth to death. Clotho to spin the thread, Lachesis to measure it, and Atropos to cut it when the end has come.

Inspired by both the mythology of the fates and the theatrical nature of the Ancient Greek tales is this shoot by Brandon Lyon. Lindsay Higgins plays the role of all three fates on this dramatic stage – transformed into each character by the makeup of Kiley Wirtz-Jennings and hair by Megan Tyler.

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.
