Together Once Again
Celebrating community, our ability to be here, to connect and share again.
It's been a tough couple of years and we want to celebrate life and all it holds for 2022 and beyond.
With the season inspired by local Australian creative talents, our Autumn 22 campaign celebrates connectivity and a sense of community, a bringing together of our personal uniqueness.
Together, once again.
Brought together in a dreamy mid-century Warrandyte home, creatives from all divisions joined forced to celebrate a return to togetherness. Produced in partnership with Fashion Journal, beautiful artistry was formed and created.
In the words of Ruby Staley, powerhouse writer and featured talent, meet the 10 Australian creatives who inspired our AU22 campaign.
“The day of the shoot kicked off strong, with content creator and all-around gorgeous human Kristy Wu shooting first up. Her strong passion for design was made obvious through her stylistic choices. A natural in front of the camera, her selections both in the shoot and her day to day are unparalleled.
Fresh on the modelling scene, Onella Muralidhara is most passionate about shifting society’s beauty and body standards – a huge but admirable task. The multi-skilled beauty is also an interior designer concerned with creating spaces that are not only functional but aesthetically align with the use of the space (and she somehow finds time to pole dance on the side).
'into companionship or close association'.
Su Park, a model and graphic designer (and all-around wholesome human), is creative in her approach to life. Constantly smiling and giggling, she radiates an enviable aura of positivity that boosted the mood for everyone involved on shoot day. Both through her work and her personality, it’s clear that making life just that little bit more fun is her forte.
A ceramicist by trade, Jess Choi of Eun Ceramics was lucky enough to find purpose in her hobby, turning it into a successful business and even finding a way to connect to her Korean heritage. Leaving her love of throwing clay behind for the day, she brought an air of lightness and fun to the shoot.
A true creative in every sense of the word, visual and musical artist Bel is a sight to behold. In her words, crafting “scriptures for the transcendental, visual forms to stun” is her prerogative, and this love and passion for the artistic realm is clear from the moment you come into contact with her.
Hansika, a fashion designer, pattern maker, seamstress and stylist, is not only talented – she’s the human form of sunshine. Passionate about designing pieces that push the boundaries of men and women’s fashion for her brand DocGirl, her creative knack is only enhanced by her warm and bubbly personality.
Dynamic duo Ginger and Carman are living proof age is just a number. Fun-loving and enigmatic, these two unintentionally stole the show on the day and had everyone obsessed. They were filming fun TikToks, frolicking around and dishing compliments out to everyone they met.
Finishing the day strong, writer and curator Sabina McKenna was last up on the call sheet. The brains behind the photojournalistic project Where Are You From?, she is a true storyteller at heart. On the day, Sabina completely captivated everyone with her intelligence, warmth and vulnerability.
The stories we shared and the moments we captured on film were all made possible thanks to the incredible team who each brought their own individual definition of creativity to the project. With the peculiarities of the past couple of years somewhat behind us, it was a moment in time for us all to take a break from normal life, to connect and reignite the fire that keeps this fierce community alive. It’s a gift I won’t soon forget, that’s for sure.”
