>> When I was an Australian Fashion Week noobie three years ago, I basically could only recognise groups of people by certain trailblazing figureheads. Harper's Bazaar Australia gang would be repped by Christine Centenera's chic and severe ensembles. The Russh girls could by spotted a mile away by Stevie Dance's relaxed and slightly bohemian style. Vogue Australia had Meg Gray (picture above) and her flash of pink hair. You can really tell with certain people whether they're dipping their locks for the sartorial sake of dipping their locks but Meg was born to be pink. She's going to think I'm a freak but watching her run about the shows over the last three years is a real joy because she's a print/colour fetishist too. I think she also addressed me as "possum" yesterday. I think that's a good thing. I think it means cute. I've just googled "possum" and I'm very much ok with that assocation.
Anyhow, Meg Gray has gone freelance and still styles for Vogue Australia but has ventured into the scary depths of online with her own site entitled Gray Gardens. She calls it a blog but I'd call it a personal portfolio slash online zine. It literally just launched yesterday but she'll be updating a few times a week with personal shoots, GIFs and all her styling work, indulging in all her candy-hued and print-tastic tastes. It's a little bare at the moment but I love that Meg has given this new slant to a stylist's space, avoiding the blank and cold portfolio approach. She'll be adding features such as click-to-buy elements but for now, it's a joyous space of moving Miu Miu treasure-worthy boxes, juicily colourful smiles and the pastel joys that S/S 12 still has to offer.
