Long coats and spring casuals!

A great moment shared as these two sisters spent time walking between locations to meet Mom on Mother’s day.
Comfort street walking shoes and casuals are offset by

Clean make up and naturally beautiful skin, minimal lipstick and tidy brows are great practice for appearing younger on women of all ages.

This month we go on location for a quick snap shot of local publication Y.A.M. at work in studio VIC42 with a custom couture piece from my collection #ss2016 Teresa Lindsay Couture. The design is a #geofashion dress done in soft cotton jersey with an 80’s angled pattern in blacks and royal blue. This creation came at the request of fashion stylist, Janine Metcalfe for a distinct series on a spread titled “Moody Blues.”
Special thanks to photographer Jeffery Bosdet, model Katie Keough, and make-up by Melodie Reynolds of Elate Cosmetics.

This Week’s Inner City Blossom was pink like the trees
such a graceful little one who loves to dress herself…
Creatively she reminds us to add a little bling to anything and
that the bigger stitches can make any outfit more island feminine.
So sweet, topped with braids.

of Behind the scenes…. love this shot of Ivan Meade taking his versions too!
The very talented team as we have said before worked tirelessly to produce a brand building photograph of Ivan Meade’s first collection of designer interior fabrics. A creative undertaking that we especially proud and honoured to be a part of.
Thanks to a beautiful fog that rolled in we had a natural white wall illuminated by the sun, a complete gift and total surprise that helped make this such a memorable photograph.
Please leave comments below that you would like to make and we will be sure to share them with the team!
