There’s a world going on underground

Those who have never set foot inside Melbourne’s House of Maximon could find themselves dizzyinly disorientated by this shoot: it could just as easily be set in the neon-lit bowels of Tokyo, or of some unearthly underworld, as the gritty laneways of Melbourne. And it’s a perfect backdrop, for a shoot that dives headfirst into all things nocturnal and experimental, for a shoot that mixes neon lights, religious iconography and skeleton bones with the edgy styling by Bianca Christoff.

Sara Phanekham stars as the fair-haired, dramatically made up muse (props to makeup artist Kate Blainey and hair stylist Frank Apostolopoulos for the looks). Behind the lens and directing the course of this underground trip is photographer Fiona Storey, who makes the most of every corner of the dark establishment in creating truly riveting imagery.

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.
