THE RED COLLECTION

If you haven’t yet picked up this month’s issue of MiNDFOOD then this is your friendly reminder. The May issue is one you don’t want to miss!

Over the past couple of months the MiNDFOOD team, me included, have been very busy pulling together an incredible portfolio of women to highlight the issue of heart disease which is the biggest killer of women globally and kills 48 women in New Zealand a week.

The gorgeous Antonia Prebble (pictured) of Outrageous Fortune fame kindly agreed to take part in the shoot during a flying visit from LA where she is currently filming a television series. On that day we converted the MiNDFOOD Auckland office into a photographic studio.

Stylist Jane Mow (pictured below right) pulled together some glorious red gowns for the shoot and make-up artist Tanya Barlow (left) also performed some special magic.

It’s amazing what you can find at the Bush Fairy Dairy, Peria, Bay of Islands.

THE EARTH HOUSE

Located in Peria, Bay of Islands, New Zealand this place is run by co-op of volunteers who prepare delicious food and non-alcoholic fermented juices made from the produce grown in the organic garden.

It’s open weekends during summer for morning and afternoon tea and lunch.

Payment by koha/donation.

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!
