Chicfinds loves and adores the photography of Tim Walker. His images are mystical and full of fantasy. His style tells a story that is whimsical and reminiscent of fairy tales and childhood stores.
Tim Walker’s photography is composed and stylized. His subjects are romantic and beautiful with an innocence and purity. Often depicting a English flavor they are never sexy .
“Tim Walker – British born, London based photographer Tim Walker is one of the most exciting photographers of our time. He has established himself at the cutting edge of fashion photography. Walker began his photographic journey working as a freelance assistance in London before moving to New York to work with American fashion and portrait photographer Richard Avedon. Returning to England inspired, he focused mainly on his portrait and documentary work for UK newspapers, before at the age of 25 shooting his first fashion story for Vogue. His innovative photography is amongst the most imaginative and exuberant being produced today. Tim’s work regularly features in style and fashion magazines including British Vogue, Vanity Fair, Italian Vogue, W and Harpers Bazaar, he has also created and advertising campaigns for exclusive clients such as Comme des Garcons and Gap. Extraordinary environments and people are the things that he finds the most inspiring. He has published some books such as ‘STORY TELLER’ in 2012 and ‘PICTURES’ in 2008 as well. He also received bunch of awards for instance The Isabella Blow Award for fashion creator from the British fashion council in 2008 and in 2010 his first short film went on to win best short film at the Chicago United Film Festival. ” http://lyslalidpat.myblog.arts.ac.uk/2013/11/17/tim-walker-research-for-the-two-photographers/

Not sure where to start?
Read some tips from Emmanuelle Alt on having a contemporary wardrobe that works;
1. If it doesn’t fit, it never will, get rid of it as clothes look best when they fit whether they are on trend or not
2. If you haven’t used it or worn it in over a year, get rid of it
3. A great wardrobe has the a little bit of everything but not too much of nothing.
4. Trends are great but make sure you have a classic core
Bare it down,,, summer to winter or winter to summer. Get rid of the time and space wasters

Ellery is the first Australian designer to really catch my eye. I have liked some designers in the past but not in the way I like Ellery. Her aesthetic is unique and has depth. It was this Resort 15 collection that put her on my radar. Kim is a beautiful girl who I noticed when at Russh Magazine (http://www.russhmagazine.com/). Until her Resort 15 collection I found her designs to be too angular and her fabric heavy and irrelevant to our market. As much as I liked her style I couldn’t really get her designs. They looked like they were trying to hard to stand out from the crowd but they were not translating commercially.
Ellery’s Resort 15 collection changed my conception. Effortless designs with a real point of difference. Clever lengths, arms and fabrics. Shirting that stood out from the crowd and commanded a high price point but worth every cent. Shoulders still in evidence but commercially clever rather than being so avant guard. The layering and panels make shape and the body is no longer relevant as the clothes do the job of creating the shape. This is the beauty of Ellery. Her clothes do an amazing job in dressing the body and creating form and shape.
Chicfinds Ellery to be a innovative creation for all sizes and especially suited to plus size. Its a chic plus size brand. As much as the designs look amazing on thin arms and tall silhouettes, its very suited to a short size 18. The fabrics sit off the body and create their own shape. It’s an Australian label which is unique in the sense that its not about body. Its about the design and the fabric.
Fall 15 offers some beautiful coats, jackets and skirts;http://www.elleryland.com/collection-current.html
It is not a economical find but its a worthwhile one as the fabric and designs are timeless and unique.
Chicfinds sunday project is to add a little colour the the tone on tone. A touch of Vietnam green goes well in any part of the home, bathroom to bedroom. Paint an old frame, mirror or bed head, this colour is so beautiful!
A curtain or a pillow slip are enough to create a new feeling using this colour.
