The Shoot


Stylist: Michela Byl    Photographer: Matthew Burditt    Hair & Makeup: Naureen Manzoor    Model: Jess Hotvedt

As promised a number of weeks ago, here are the snaps from my styling final.

Look 1: Another era, another life. This look focuses on the spirit of a woman searching for something- or someone- lost. Haunting yet beautiful is the overarching visual theme, and proves that shades of grey can be just as interesting as the brightest of colours.

Look 2: Bright colours, graphic prints. Warhol and Superwoman. Taking pieces from comic strips and classic pop art alike, this look is all about energy and that extra bam. When pulled together, these inspirations create a shoot that is as blinding as it is fun. A truly upbeat visual feast.

Nice Spaces

After years of grumbling about chores and cleaning my room only after my dear parents requested it, I finally had the revelation that a clean home is a happy home. (Cue exasperated sigh from mom and dad.) Living on my own in Vancouver I instantly find myself in a better mood when my apartment is clean and tidy. As the physical clutter and dust dissipate, so does my stress. Taking this idea and running with it, I’ve also started ‘curating’ little areas in my room by placing specific photos, knick-knacks, shoes etc together for effect. Call it feng shui if you must, I just call them nice spaces.
