Hermes Petit Journal de la Soie

Miranda Otto wears Therese Rawsthorne from Blood Orange, Hermes scarf and cuff, and Necklace Jan Logan. And I wear Maje and Hermes scarf
It was a spectacular evening at the Hermes Petit Journal de la Soie. Sand, no shoes and champagne flowing it was so fantastic Karin, (Managing Director of Hermes, Australia) was finding it difficult to get people to leave!

Creative consultant, Yasmin Sewell, styled up the classic Hermes silk scarves on all guests who then patiently posed for pictures. A great fashion icon herself, London based, Sewell looked amazing as always.

My fellow stylist friends, Peter Simon Phillips, Yasmin Sewell and Anna Hewett.

Louise wears faux fur coat she made from scratch.

Yes she’s a successful model and yes she’s known as Daniel Johns (Silverchair) girlfriend, but Louise Van De Vorst is so much more. With ambitions of being a future fashion designer, the 21 year old from the Sunshine Coast, is as sweet as a button and loaded with potential.

Louise in one of her own designs a hand sewn skeleton top, inspired by body parts. The necklace was a Christmas gift from John’s mother a vintage pin cushion in the shape of a bird.

Love All

The Australian Open is upon us and I enjoy my tennis immensely.
They say it’s a fashion crowd sport made famous by Miss Wintour, but unlike Andre Leon Tally’s backhand I take my tennis quite seriously.

Avid tennis player and Hermes Australia’s Managing Director, Karin Upton Baker, laughed when I asked if she had any influence over designer Jean Paul Gaultier’s champion collection for Hermes. We both share our passion for tennis and coach Rory Miles at Rushcutters Bay Tennis Center.
