Total Valentino Fall/Winter 15/16 Looks

During Paris Fashion Week I had the opportunity to work on something incredibly special for Valentino and vogue.com. After appearing on vogue.com several times before (thank you for having me in your ‘Best Looks for 2014 Round-Up’!), we decided to work on an exclusive shoot for one of my favourite designers Valentino.

It was hard enough trying to choose which runway looks I wanted during the show without the added excitement of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson making their runway debut for perhaps one of the most unexpected and memorable finales in fashion week history. Once the show was over I sent across my reference shots of these two key looks from the runway, 10 minutes later the pieces emerged from backstage and we were on our way to shoot them before catching our flight back to Sydney 3 hours later. I think the quote ‘Hot off the runway’ couldn’t apply more to this, and I’m still in awe of being the first person to experience and capture some fleeting moments in these incredibly memorable pieces.
