Masked and mysterious

Sometimes styling and photography meet in such perfect harmony. It could be good fortune, but more likely a shared vision or a skill at making the most of what everyone brings to the team. This is one of those moments of alignment. The looks created by stylist Raymond Gee for the shoot, titled Genesis, are heightened by props: masks, a bronzed shield. The clothes themselves have an avant grade edge and a fantastical, costume-like feel. Michelle Aristocrat’s photography, creative direction and ability to work with the model all come together to create a powerful photo series that’s part ancient, part modern, wholly mysterious.

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.
