Greek Goddess - Dolly October 1990

October 1990
Models Alison Jones & Alison Brahe
Photography Michael Schenko

I don't think I've scanned in this cover before, and it is far too cute to leave unseen!  I quite like this lurex and lamé themed spread set in picturesque Greece.  Styled by Carlotta Moye and with photography by Michael Schenko, some of the outfits kinda remind me of Prince - and that's a good thing!

A Parisian Eye View Of Summer - POL Magazine January 1980

A stunning little feature from POL Magazine of January 1980 (the year and month I was born) featuring the latest from the Parisian high fashion catwalks.  I simply adore the black and white Montana look - the makeup on the model is pure perfection.  Photography in this piece is by Pierre Vauthey.

Katie Pye Advertisement - POL Magazine July 1981

What a rarity - a Katie Pye advertisement!  Katie Pye is an Australian fashion designer and I first became familiar with her clothes through an exhibition that was held at NGV in 2007/2008.  She also designed the clothes featured in the Australian band Pseudo Echo's clip Listening.

Flamingo Park Advertisement - POL Magazine November 1982

A fabulously colourful + kooky advertisement for Flamingo Park - the fabulous store from inimitable designers Jenny Kee and Linda Jackson.  When Jenny Kee did her line for Target a few years ago, I bought the black and white print in the bottom left hand corner in the form of a doona and I adore it to bits!

At Home At Ease - Vogue Australia April 1983

Time to switch to 1983!  This spread is full of texture, winter woollens, cowl necks and of course Issey Miyake!  Simply stunning photography by Patrick Russell, and I managed to find a very interesting article on Mr Russell's wide ranging influence that went far beyond the pages of Vogue here!
