Though it has a booming tourist industry, the Eastern European country of Montenegro has managed to remain slightly off the radar in comparison to neighbouring Croatia. It’s beauty however is as equally breathtaking, and perhaps even more extraordinary with a diverse landscape dominated by snow-capped mountains, lakes, forests and an expansive crystal clear coastline. I was lucky enough to spend five days on the private island resort of Sveti Stefan, a small fifteenth-century fishing village connected to the coast by a narrow isthmus.

Out of all the shows I shoot, I still think Jean Paul Gaultier invites some of the most interesting attendees. It’s less classic, and much more edgy than other couture shows. Sometimes it’s full leather onsies, sometimes it’s men dressed in daring black lace numbers. This year there was a lot of beautiful color, and a lot of beautiful shoes. You may notice my obsession appears to be growing… This will be my last show for this weeks’ couture week, I can’t wait for the next. Watch this space!

Everyone remembers their first time. But if you don’t know what you’re doing it can be an awkward and unpleasant experience which may leave you feeling less than satisfied.
Luckily, there are plenty of people who have gone before you and have blazed the path for the best possible experience. Paris has a lot to offer, it can be a little daunting if you don’t know where to start. I get a lot of requests for advice from friends coming to the city of light for the first time, so I have compiled a few pointers.
I was so happy to receive an invitation to the Sinfonietta Paris Chamber Orchestra night of cocktails on conversations last weekend. Although I don’t know much about classical music every time I hear it being played it moves me in the most peculiar way. It had been some time since I last saw a violinist play Bach at the beautiful Saint Chapelle church and my thirst for beautiful live music was growing stronger.
When I was 14, I came out of our local grocery store with my mum to find a sweet silver haired lady sitting out the front selling raffle tickets. We stopped to have a look at what she was supporting, and got chatting. Her name was Nina, and she was from an intercultural (or student exchange) program called AFS.
Little did I know it at the time, but Nina was the lady that was about to change my life, in the most unimaginable and wonderful way.
