I got an email a few days ago from Alive Sydney asking whether they have permission to link to my blog, of course I said yes, any publicity is good publicity! But I didn’t know it was going to be a cool little write up, I’m pretty stoked, this is the first press coverage xssat has received.

End of self promotion… for now.


Last night, I shot my first fashion runway show, it was the 2008 Whitehouse Design Institutes fashion graduate show. I felt out of my league amongst the other photographers, I didn’t have a monopod or a big ass lens. But despite kneeling on the photographers platform for 1.5 hours, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. So here, let me share some of my favourite looks from the show.

By Natalie Foran

I like the sequins, the silk and most of the all, the tea cup!

By Vinsio Wong

I can see that clear painted umbrella being a big hit, I’d buy it.

By Johanna Spasaro

By Belinda Wills

There was a flood of none stop “Awww” when these girls came onto the runway and they are adorable. The clothes are really cute too. (I might have gotten the designer’s last name wrong, couldn’t make it out on my photos.)

By Alison Davis

Alison was the Whitehouse representative on the Australian project runway.

By Liz Chan

I really liked all of Liz’s dresses, the mini collection was simple and elegant, it shows off her designs and cuts nicely.

By Amanda Easson

By Madelyn Blom

By Billie Whitehouse

Billie is the daughter of Leanne Whitehouse, the founder and managing director of Whitehouse Design Institute.

By Kate Armstrong

Note the flood of cream coloured long dresses? Either that’s the look of the year or I just really liked them :)

Redhead - Glebe street fair

She has a somewhat intense look, great powerful eyes. I always like the look of red haired girls. I really like this outfit and it suits her so much, I even like the slightly snagged stockings. It adds to her look and hints at her nonchalance personality.

50's look - Glebe street fair

The felt hat adds so much, I like the little dashes of red, in her hat, her lipstick, buttons on her dress, the belt and the shoes, the red really ties the whole outfit together.

Blue & owl - Glebe street fair

Such a cute bag! I like the simple blue dress, matching earrings, paired with down to earth brown shoes and bags. Timelessly quirky.
