Good Morning Nocturne!

Silk Maxi Dress: Nocturne, White Panama Hat: Wanchai Market, Hong Kong, Toes: Opi

Ello again!!! I don't know if you remember, but way back before I came out to Hong Kong I wrote a piece on the clothing line Nocturne. I have had my samples now for about 3 months, and have been trying to figure out the best place and time to shoot the pieces! We tried a couple of different dresses over the months, but each time the colors were just not popping like they really do... I had to find something extra special! We have been living in serviced apartments for the past few weeks whilst we were looking for our dream jungle house  (wooo, so excited!!!!) and I only just discovered the amazing roof top last Friday! Yeah, I know! I blame working like a lunatic... my usual self would have found it before we had even moved in...and be up there sunbathing daily!!! (Note my white, white skin- says it all!!!)
The immense skyscrapers and stunning colors compliment this very sculptural, almost architectural piece in the best way right?! I feel this dress was born to be worn (rhyme!) on the 33rd floor overlooking Hong Kong! We shot this at about 8am... perfect morning light... My favorite time to shoot... err, if you completely ignore the fact that I am still asleep! It's kinda hard to drag yourself up before work to shoot- i'm sure you agree! But well worth it this morning to see over Hong Kong before it/I was wide awake! God bless Albert for being such a trooper... We always find a way, no matter how busy things get! <3
I hope you have all had a good sleep, and are ready for Wednesday! Maybe you are on holiday??? LUCKYYY!!! If you get a chance, please do a little voting for me for the ELLE/GUESS comp, coz if I win, you win goodies!!! Lots of goodies!!! :)  p.s... I have given up with blogger and it's random decisions regarding the size of my pictures! I swear I do the same thing every time, yet it always comes out completely different! Most frustrating! xx

This entire photo shoot is a work of art. The shots are well done and the model looks like she's not even working at all :P Oh, you were sleeping, hahaha. But the white background and the shapes just work so, so well with that dress. And you look stunning as always. Ugh, come to Japan and start your line heeeeeeeeere! I wanna witness your brilliance in real life~

wow, this is so gorgeous. i like that it's a bright print but somehow it's not overpowering or too in your face. it's the best balance and you look great in it!
