Siren… of the silver screen

It’s the last surviving Grand hotel in Australia. And though the threat of being swallowed up by the glassy coldness of modern development looms, it hasn’t yet given up its heritage Victorian charm or its nickname of The Duchess of Spring Street.

And that’s what makes The Hotel Windsor in Melbourne such a perfect backdrop for a vintage-inspired shoot like this one. For the 29th issue of FASHIONTREND Magazine (fashiontrend.com.au) model Stephanie Murphy transforms into a sultry siren; a siren of the cinematic variety, posed by photographer Christian Blanchard against the hotel’s luxuriousness. With glamorous styling by Kate Gaskin she is – as the Editor’s Letter by Nikita Papas poetically describes – “an invitation to dream”.

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.
