WINDSOR 3181.

When shooting a piece bases on a suburb, event or idea it literally means walking around for hours, days or sometimes week, looking for the people who are going to tell my story. People who get dressed every day in clothes that speak to their own personal style. The more time I spent on projects like this, the more inspired I am to take my own personal style to a more conscious level.  

While spending time in Windsor shooting an Autumn street style story for Vogue.com.au I met and shot a selection of amazing individuals, who I think reflect the Windsor aesthetic. But of course a place isn't just about the people, it's also about culture. A culture made up of eating, drinking, shopping, streetscapes, design, art and an overall feeling that identifies that place.

 This photo diary is really everything I loved about Windsor. All our favourite hang outs, eats, pit stops and retail therapy and a little of my own personal style.

85 Chapel St, Windsor. With the best counter and floor I have ever seen, Pidapipo has also converted me from a Magnum addict to their delicious gelato... I actually went back quite a few times in the same week and thought it I only had one scoop I could come back the next day. Addicts logic.

99 Chapel St, Windsor. Japanese is my favourite food, especially at Mr Miyagi. I could eat one of these taco's everyday.
