The Crusader of the streets

Bringing justice to the streets may once have been Batman’s realm, but model Sarah Maresh is doing the job in heels.

In Julia Kiecksee’s shoot Streets of Justice being a contemporary superhero of the streets means being prepared to wear clothing that’s as dark as the shadows and as edgy as a knife; where attitude is your armour and beauty your weapon of distraction. Charity Baker-Crowley’s styling plays on the crusader theme with its recurrent use of crucifix motifs, all the while maintaining a feminine appeal.

With soft waves by Karina Vega framing a face that pairs bare eyes with burgundy lips (as made up by Alisha L Baijounas) Maresh becomes a Gothic beauty of a very contemporary kind. In Streets of Justice Julia Kiecksee shows that you don’t have to be caped to be a modern-day crusader.

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.
