AUGUST STREET: Behind The Scenes of 'Let Them Eat Cake'

I am very excited to share with you a blogger collaboration with Aussie fashion label August Street. Having first introduced August Street and their Winter 2012 Collection earlier, I was thrilled to be invited by head designer Ainsley to style a look for their upcoming spring collection. Myself and four other fellow bloggers (to be revealed soon!) had the opportunity to select pieces from the collection and style a look for gorgeous model Krystal Glynn, a look for ourselves as well answering a few questions, all of which to be included in the final look book. August Street's spring collection titled 'Let Them Eat Cake' is all sorts of amazing offering a range of bright, citrus colours, sharp tailored ensembles, hand screen printed graphic prints, large doses of neon and a cute denim overall number that will make you go weak in the knees. The look book was shot at Sun Studios in Waterloo, where we were treated to champagne and cupcakes on set. We were welcomed to bring along our own accessories and shoes to style our personal looks, whilst also having the option to choose some of the stylish goodies Door 121 kindly supplied. 

I won't get into too much detail just yet, best to save the best till last. For now here are some behind-the-scenes photos I snapped during the day. Oh and did I mention the super cool Rachel Rutt was also on set and joined us in styling a look too!

Stay tuned for the big reveal of the spring lookbook and styled looks from myself and the other bloggers. It really is interesting to see how our different fashion personalities come out in all of the looks!

I hope you're all having a good week. We are now at half way (Hooray!) A friendly reminder; if you're not catching up on my posts via BlogLovin' be sure to get on board. There are some exciting blogger projects on the horizon for Your Only Black Swan, I wouldn't want you to miss out.

Thanks for stopping by.
