To celebrate Fateful Fashion's 5th Anniversary, I wanted to collaborate with other Adelaide creatives in Fashion, to reflect back on their own journeys and setting future predictions/intentions for the next 5 years. I have been fortunate enough to interview Paul Vasileff of Paolo Sebastian, who has always been an inspiration to myself and is a true depiction of hard work recognized and rewarded, and through it all, Paul has always been so humble and gracious. Fateful Fashion interviewed Paul a few years ago, when we were both in our earlier stages of our fashion journey, and it has been so amazing to have the opportunity to interview Paul again, I am truly grateful for Pauls' commitment to Paolo Sebastian and his support of others in the fashion industry. Looking back what has been the most outstanding favourite moment for Paolo Sebastian? One of the most outstanding moments for Paolo Sebastian has to be collaborating...

I recently caught up with designers Paul & Georgina Tsiavlis who are behind up and coming fashion brand GEORGY COLLECTION. Not only was I lucky enough to talk all things fashion, I also got a sneak peak of their collection, which is due to be launching within the coming months. GEORGY COLLECTION is a mix of class and sophistication - with an edge, ensuring whomever wears their gowns feel beautiful, confident and sexy! With a strong focus on high-quality design and individual desire to suit your personal style. Georgina, the designer behind the brand states that ‘At the heart of the collection lies a strong design aesthetic. Contoured lines and structured silhouettes create a signature style that radiates from every intricate stitch and seam. GEORGY COLLECTION designs are bold and confident, and make the women who wear them feel the same.’ Thank you to Paul & Georgina for giving me this exclusive sneak peak, definitely a...

I’ve teamed up with luxury British Brand Kurtis Paul, specialising in beautifully crafted men’s bags and accessories. Kurtis Paul aim to bring high quality products to the masses and target a demographic they refer to as ‘The Modern Gentleman’. Launching in 2015 with their leather collection, since Kurtis Paul have expanded and released their leather accessories and canvas collection, this was only made available recently and is crafted from a luxurious 20oz, super thick canvas. This was chosen to give a harder wearing, higher quality feel. The brand is big on personalisation, tailoring names to their accessories and giving their products a unique personality. Kurtis Paul was created for the Modern Gentleman, this is someone who as a sense of purpose, wants to have a positive impact on the world and is motivated and driven to be at their best.   It’s someone who holds themselves in high regards, has a high self worth and...

B & W Ruthie Davis photo


When we got the 'Yes, she'll do the interview' we almost fell over! There's nothing more heart warming then having a designer go out of their way to help you with your dreams. Interviewing the fabulous Ruthie Davis is definitely a milestone in our 'blogging' career so far.  Starting her brand in 2006 after working for the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, she has come a long way since then and now Beyonce is wearing her designs. Ruthie is an inspiration to all, and doing this interview brought us back to what we really love about fashion, the way it can make you feel, it's power to change your mood and lift you when nothing else can, retail therapy is no myth and how it gives you something to cling to, to live for. Ruthie has reinforced that dream of ours and I hope you feel it too. Without further delay here is the...

Fateful Fashion Fotoshoot

Not too long ago, Alexis and I both did took some professional photos of outfits of our choice to showcase. I got my good friend Morgan to take mine (because she is better behind the camera than I am, and better in front of it too), I dressed up and made a fool of myself trying to pose in the City with many interruptions and behind the scenes photos that will never be shown. We wanted to do something a little different and a bit more exclusive and fun, so we hope you enjoy! Wearing, Top Shop pants, Mink Pink Jumper, Sportsgirl boots and Hunt No More Faux Fur jacket Xo  ...

JJ Threads shirts


We got approached by J.J. Threads a little while ago  who are a unique Men's store based in New York who focus purely on tailor made fashion. They are an innovating shirting company on the boarder of fashion and technology, creating shirts that are made for you, literally. By logging in you become the designer, with the freedom to customize fabrics and fits. It is a revolutionary form of online shopping.  Founder J.J. built a digital space that gives drive to the customer, J.J says  “We don’t ask people to conform to what our design team thinks is the best style."  J.J. Wich launched the company after being involved in the custom shirting and tailoring game whilst in Hong Long and has made it his mission to provide the same attention to detail through his website. There are two ways that customers can experience J.J. Threads's approach to finding the best fit for...

Late last year we got the chance to catch up with Adelaide Designer Paul Vasileff of Paolo Sebastian, you may have seen some of his masterpieces on the Red Carpet at the Golden Globes and most recently the Academy Awards, as well as on the faces of many fashionable celebrities such as Danii Minogue and Guiliana Rancic. We talked everything fashion and got to play dress ups, every girls dream! Paul started at the very young age of 17 and since has amazed everyone with his breathtaking collections. At a young age you chose to pursue a career in fashion, what does fashion mean to you? It’s not necessarily so much about fashion, I wouldn’t say I work in fashion; it’s more about style because fashion changes by style remains forever. To me fashion is how people live their life day to day and how they make fashion work for them.  I’ve always been interested...

The hat was once an accessory you wouldn’t leave the house without, not only did it apply the finishing touch to your outfit but it provided shelter through winter and summer protecting you from the weather.

It’s too cold for this

  Today, my beautiful friend Morgan Sette helped with taking some photos for us and ultimately you! The saying rain, hail or snow clearly applied today Ah, the things we do for fashion! Winter is the best time to experiment with your personal style, for me, I do just that, from layering up jackets and pants, to the short and stocking combo like I did today, all the way to winter dresses. There's so much to choose from when it comes to winter style, the world of fashion is at your disposal. With my look, it was quite straight forward actually, a pair of winter-like shorts (which just means thick) although, you could try it with any shorts really. A thick jumper, stockings, boots and to touch it off a beanie. All of these are just the ground work, you can pick any jumper, any shorts, any stockings and any beanie, the trick is working with the...

Who doesn't love a good black & white combo - it's one of our favorite couples, they fit so perfectly together. That's why in this shoot we decided to keep the photos black and white, because we love the classics!

One stop makeover

I took my cousin Zac shopping for a quick wardrobe update, like most guys he didn't want to spend much and I knew it would have to be a short shopping trip otherwise I would bore him to death. We went to Zara, and he bought 3 shirts, one including this suit shirt he is wearing (on the right). What I love about this shirt is it can be worn casually, semi formally and formally. He teamed it with these brown pants which were his own and kept it simple. One thing I found while shopping for a guy is the fit of the clothes, with girls there are many different fits and styles that may suit one person perfectly but become unflattering on another body shape. With Zac, as he is fairly tall and slender we chose tops in a smaller fitted size that help proportion his body. If you want any tips for...

The Lilah

This afternoon we took little Lilah - four years old (not so little I suppose, and she acts like a 12 year old) shopping.  We headed to Burnside and went straight to Zara and never left. Each outfit came to about 70 odd dollars, some a bit more including the jackets etc, but we found it reasonably priced and got some adorable outfits that I warn you to brace yourself for. She was an angel shopping and a natural born model, it was a great experience for all not only did Lilah have fun but so did we! Seeing her in some of these outfits makes me want to take a trick or two out of her book. 'Summer fun' look a simple dress and my favorite sandals, simple yet super fun and the sandals can be worn with almost any clothing to add extra flare too! 'Winter Wonderland' look - as Lilah would say This one was one...

All rugged up!

Now, it may not seem like it today, but for us Aussie's winter is just around the corner, and a huge thanks to these two beauties for helping me model some easy winter looks. I've mentioned on numerous occasions how much I love winter, and fashion is one of the major reasons why. Firstly, how cute do they look? Ella and Alana Glapa, showing off their cousingly bond! If you're like me and think as soon as the season changes, so should your wardrobe, well it doesn't have to.  Yes it's healthy now and then to update your wardrobe for whatever reason that may be, but if you are on a budget or don't have any room left in your closet then it's important to make use of what you already have! In the first look, Ella left is wearing a simple maroon cardigan, grey staple tee, black jeans, black boots, grey beanie and a patterned scarf, it may...

White.  A simplistic trend, everyone can make their own. Fresh, versatile and accessible, we just can't get enough! White on white is one way to make a stand, it's understated yet bold and seeing from the looks below, can be changed to suit everyone's personality. Most people look at white as being a 'safe' option, however it is now taking the 'matchy-matchy' look to a sophisticated new level. Check  out full post and other up-coming trends on our 'trend forcast' page! http://fatefulfashion.wordpress.com/trend-watch/ Xo Fateful Fashion ...

Hi Ashlee, first of all, it’s nice to ‘cyberly’ meet you, I’ve been admiring your Graduate Parade collection, the hand textured garments – did you do that yourself? The Copper?

Photographed by Jackie Tran, hair and make up Kelle Kim and Model Matilda Gordon I've always been into fashion, as long as I can remember. I started a stall at Gilles St Markets in Adelaide about 5 years ago with one of my closest friends Rach, mostly vintage and up-cycled pieces but that pretty quickly led to designing How old were you when you first started...
