SCULPTURAL SILHOUETTES AND BEI NA WEI

For those of you that follow my work or know me well, you’d know I prefer being behind the camera doing my styling thing! So when Melbourne’s Liz Sunshine of Streetsmith, one of my favourite street style blogs, approached me about colloborating on some key new season trends, I found myself on the other side of the lens. Liz is an incredible talent and if you haven’t already acquainted yourself with Streetsmith – it’s time!

This is the first of three stories we worked on together. For me, the new summer season is all about pastels and sports luxe fabrics. Emerging designer, Bei Na Wei incorporates all of these elements in her latest collection. If you don’t know her, get familiar as this girl is going to be the next big thing in fashion.

Bei Na pushes fabrics beyond their traditional uses, as we saw this past Mercedes Benz Fashion Week when the designer showcased this latest collection as part of “The Innovators” show.

Bei Na’s designs combine sculptural silhouettes, innovative fabrications and laser-sharp detailing. There’s a delicate balance in her designs, technical edge and feminine details. This jacket and dress, made from industrial strength synthetic mesh is my favourite in the collection. I can’t wait to see what’s to come for this uber talented designer.
