In love with Jayson Brunsdon

Eleven years ago I was wowed by Jayson Brunsdon’s first collection launched under his own name at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. 

Miranda Kerr modelled in that show – that was before she was famous of course – but from that moment I’ve never forgotten her face, or that special coming together of her intriguing beauty and his dreamy gowns.

Then I got to meet Brunston and his amazing partner Aaron Elias, and fell in love all over again with them as people.

Since then I’ve been an absolute fan of Brunsdon and a champion of his work.

Yesterday I was lucky enough to see another one of his shows and chat to him backstage at Fashion Week in Sydney. It was a different show for Brunsdon but it still had his hallmarks and I’m still a fan. And, now I want to go to Rio!

It was a media scrum backstage at Toni Maticevski’s show earlier today. I managed to capture these moments before the media were ejected from the room. Not because they were misbehaving but because it was a space issue. There just wasn’t any room to move!

Every now and then I attend a fashion show that reminds me why I fell in love with fashion in the first place. Toni Maticevski’s show today was one of them.

A portrait of fashion
This is one of my favourite shots of the day, taken backstage at Aurelio Costarella. I like it because I think it’s beautiful as well as being a bit crazy – there is a lot going on despite the simplicity of the lines.
