New Year New Beliefs

Something I personally find helpful to do all year is to reevaluate my mind processes and my thoughts. During a drive to town today I caught myself thinking “Why do men make more than women?” Than it hit me. “Who did I buy that from?” “Where and when did I get sold this belief.” So I decided, I decide.

This could be said for anything you think or believe.
Change what you think.

I’d like to add, change what you wear, just for fun!

Please share your eye opener thoughts for 2016….
Happy New Year!

Launch Couture Collection

Today Teresa Lindsay, founder of Threaditorial StreetStyle and Fashion Project memoirs, announces that she is producing her own fashion collection, designer originals for Spring / Summer 2016, which will debut as a preview on the runway at the second annual Fashion Splash 2015 in Victoria’s Inner Harbour. Designing a collection is one vision in a series of lifelong dreams Teresa is currently pursuing and she is appreciative of the opportunity to participate with the other incredible local designers. “It is a privilege to showcase with my first collection among the many amazing and talented wheelers of the needle in millinery, clothing, lingerie, redesign, and jewellery, of our city and the very important (often behind the scenes) talent related to fashion – the masters of hair, makeup and styling,” shares Teresa in anticipation for the event.

About Teresa Lindsay Designs
Teresa Lindsay Designs’ are inspired and consumed by the fabrics she selects on her many fabric finding expeditions. As a young woman one of her first jobs was working in a fabric store while she studied fashion in high school. When she walked into the store for work every day, every bolt of fabric spoke to her. With every pattern or texture an image would appear in her mind – very clearly, as to what that fabric would look like as an ensemble or garment. This gift of imagining fabric into clothes has never left her. Her work in the areas of manufacturing swimwear, image consulting, styling for magazines, and as spokesperson on cruise ship television for shopping and high-end jewellery only covered up her desire to work as a fashion designer.

About the Collection
This collection, a series of  works she titles “Siren,” is created from a process for designing clothes she has coined as “GeoFashion” – made of shapes and with a conscious effort to produce an extremely “low waste” factor during the production process. The fabrics are sourced from remnants, bolt ends, refurbished fibres, eco-fabrics and more. The efforts to effect little, and have high-end couture impact is key to her concept. Each one of the handmade items is a one-of-a-kind. There are no patterns, to ensure there is no exact duplication or replication. She plans to specifically create originals and fashions by commission. Designing for each person from each fabric; each piece inspired by the fabric at the time it is discovered. Some edges are raw and silks that are shear, soft and flowing – her use of fabric and design are not typical.

“I want women to feel like they are floating, to exude beauty and femininity with confidence. This is the purpose for which the fabrics I choose are mostly shear.  Onlookers will have to guess where the body stops and the fabric begins.

Some of the designs may remind people of countries or places, or even cultures, but I can assure you it is the vision of GeoFashion and the drape of the fabric that is behind the inspiration. Much of history could be referenced, even Roman times because of the simplicity. I love this idea – the idea of being less restricted.

My clothing may not go dirt biking, and trust me I love adventure, however I hope when women wear them they feel they can walk into a room and jaws will drop. Or feel as if they could glide down the gangway of a yacht dressed for an evening on the town. So our city and this show is the perfect setting for the launch of this collection!”

Fashion Styling on Set

Two weeks behind the scenes with Epicure on location!
With my regular full schedule I had the additional opportunity this past few days to coordinate fashion on this brilliant production by OneNet Marketing. It was truly rewarding. It’s one of those experiences where the people and professionals involved really make the whole thing twice as rich. There was an incredible team behind this project and vision from Epicure (the client) that was truly inspiring! Beautiful farm shots, golden hour at the beach, and two days at two stunning homes with white rooms and pristine views. Magic!

At the start of summer the wardrobe options on location were blissfully staged for indoor dinner cooking, bbq outdoors, business meetings and strolls on the beach. With incredible weather it made everything easier for getting to and from with full racks of clothing!

Working from mood boards and scene sketches helps us decide on the looks and then allocate the models, roles, sizes and scenes all together on a styling board.

Once we have a theme and the models in mind for each scene (and know who is with who as to not clash with colours and style the wardrobe to work together), we can then go sourcing!

To through in some helpful advise on fashion, I want to share that if people become familiar with cut and with fabrics it gets easier to determine how something will look – rather than just “off the rack.” Here are a few examples of what items looked like before someone tried them on. Then you can see for yourself just how amazing the difference is when there is a body in the clothing.

We finish off the day on location at the beach during the golden hours… spectacular day!


Ocean front suite on Dallas Road is our hold up for the whole day, day 3.


Then at 5pm we break out to shoot a few more coffee shop meeting shots in the Atrium.


That wraps up 2 weeks of shopping, sourcing, and 8hrs or more on set!
Wardrobe styling that mattered for a professional video short… love it!

Everyone looked amazing and the team was incredible to work with – Nicole, Michael, David, Erin, Eriko, Rhonda (and team), Kelsey (photos), the actors, and models – thank you for a great time and a memorable experience. Can’t wait to include a link to the final product.

Thank you also goes out to all the fashion retail stores who were willing to contribute clothing!
