Summer Fashion Forecast 2020

Image source: Photographer Ian Waldie

The heady, hot and humid days of high summer are upon us. Intoxicating, seductive, languid. Our beautiful town, nestled in the fragrant, fertile cradle of the sub tropics, blesses us with the lush foliage, flora and fauna of the season, bringing the brightest of pure colour to our trusted environment and igniting all of our senses with its natural bounty. A new excitement gathers hold, a renewed confidence in our place, and our place within it. The lightest breath of frangipani-scented air, the salty tang of the pristine waters of Laguna Bay, and the classic, bucolic scene of the perfectly setting sun over the river and beyond to the rolling hills of the hinterland temper our mood, lift our spirit and invigorate our soul.

Taking instinctive reference from the tones and textures of our stunning surrounds, this season we choose to dress with a sense of celebration and bold enchantment; employing rich, opulent jewelled shades, generous floral pattern and motif, botanically-inspired print and elegant, refined and considered cuts to further underscore the welcome influence of our natural world. Our choice of fabric remains of an organic persuasion, we preference the lightness, feel and integrity of textiles derived from Mother Earth. Although what we wear embodies strength, drama and lends a subsequent presence, clothes become not just a means of covering the body, but rather they start to convey in the most transparent, truest sense, our optimism, our refreshed hopes, and the boundlessness of the natural splendour always inherent in- Our place, Our Noosa.

THE GOOD SPACE

On a hot spring day we were relieved to find ourselves in The Good Space, a beautiful photography studio and prop library for hire in Noosaville.

Created by Social Tap, The Good Space caters for agencies, creatives, local businesses, and photographers looking for a bright, welcoming and open space.

Social Tap Director Michelle Mason said she hoped the studio would contribute to an already flourishing Noosa creative ecosystem, and support local world class agencies, freelancers and retailers create beautiful photographic content.

“Noosa has such a strong community of exceptional creatives and local businesses and we’re excited to share our space with them!”

“We are still in the early days, and have plans to continually improve the studio and its offering over the coming months,” she said. “Our space is your space.”
