Modern Minimalism.


The Realist.

After two amazing years of highglosswhite, I grew to learn a lot about myself, my personal style, and what really interested me that I felt I could share with the world. I felt, from the beginning, that I wanted to make my voice known, and help make fashion more accessible in my city – a place where the fashion scene is still young, but in development.

I have always had a passion for photography, and more specifically fashion photography. This lead me into creating outfit posts that I style and produce to create an editorial look out of what I choose to wear everyday. From there, I have worked on creating full seasonal photo shoots with looks that were curated by myself, with the help of many talented friends of mine. I am so proud of all of the content that I have created in the last two years as highglosswhite, but I am looking forward to an even better future with a whole new name: THE REALIST.

I wanted to come up with a name that talked about real, honest fashion. In art history terms, realist works of art are described as pieces that are shown for what they are, and that are not overly decorative, or at least not without a specific purpose for being so. While I do enjoy decoration in the form of colour, pattern, and great accessories, I always strive to make my style edited and never overdone. Editing doesn’t mean you can’t have fun, it simply means you always have just the right amount of fun. I love to play with my personal style, because I think it is one of the most amazing ways in which we can express ourselves and our individuality in the world around us. At the end of the day, I have always followed Coco Chanel’s mantra of editing your look before stepping out the door: and it always works!

I appreciate all of the love and support from everyone who reads my blog, and enjoys seeing all of my photos – there are more posts on the way, I promise! Now, here’s to a new name, a new year, and a new chapter in my life as a young person, and a blogger. I am so grateful for everyone who has, and will in future, become a part of my style journey. This blog, as well as the content I create, is something I truly love!

      Thank you so much Jared, I truly appreciate the support! I couldn’t agree more that reinvention is always necessary, and it is important to keep a finger on your own pulse to see what direction you want to move towards.

      I have great news – my Resort 2013 photoshoot is due to launch in the next week or so which will be amazing! Stay tuned! :)

      Thanks again for the love and support,
