What is it that’s so undeniably romantic about a lone girl on a desert island, deserted beach or wandering wide desert scapes of some other far off wonderland? I’ve always steered away from shoots with multiple models for that very reason… fashion is such a personal thing, you may have 3 friends but each will have their own individual style… which is why I’ve always explored the notion of the intimate moments alone in our photo shoots. Where all that matters is what you want. The rest of the world falls away.

This mesmerising castaway shoot by our gorgeous online stockist The Freedom State (shot and directed by Byron’s own David Hauserman) is the perfect vehicle for this story to be played out. For isn’t it those moments alone on a beach, writing in your diary, pouring over a magazine, staring into a flickering fire that are truly beautiful, intimate, lasting?

I’m loving the styling in this shoot, it’s so quintessentially Spell, so quintessentially Free People, and ultimately, soooo Freedom State.

I love hearing how people (admittedly, women in particular) begin their entrepreneurial ventures when it flows from their passion. I asked Turquoise Lane founder Suzie Thomas what lead her down the proverbial turquoise lane

‘You asked me how it all began…Well Its always been a dream of mine. A burning desire that has always been with me. I spent most of my younger years surfing, camping and exploring our magical country whenever we could get enough money together to go on another family road trip.  My father raised me from when I was 10 months old along with my 3 year old brother. We had a childhood filled with love, adventure and endless camping trips. I honestly believe this is where my love for travel, turquoise water and adventuring comes from.

I have been fortunate enough to have the belief installed in me from a young age to work hard and chase your dreams. I guess I’ve had the work hard bit down pat but probably haven’t been chasing my own dreams.  I feel like I’d be taking more of a risk not doing Turquoise Lane, than doing it.  I’ve worked really hard to get here and I guess its my courage finally catching up with my passion that has made me take the leap and I’m LOVING it. This is me.  The turquoise lane girl is me in a nutshell.

I’d seen a few sneak peeks of this shoot flying around and have been so excited to see the full shoot – especially as it involves some of my fave creatives!

Graham Dunn, Kelley Ash and Chloe Chippendale (who on meeting her Spelly had exclaimed “I felt like she was a long lost sister!!”) and Kali Kennedy are all incredible creatives we’ve worked with before to bring our own visions to life… so it’s no surprise this little gem of a shoot for Torchlight Jewelry has come out shining as it has!

We were pretty honored to have a few of our latest pieces feature in the lookbook, (Fleetwood Maxi Dress & Hendrix Beaded Suede jacket dropping soon!) it all works perfectly with Torchlight’s latest gorgeous collection!
