THE STORY BEHIND THE COLLECTION
The pieces I have chosen are kind of based on a style I've loved for a few years.
I would call the collection 'Tropical Villa'
The pieces are things I would wear in some amazing tree house style villa on the edge of a cliff, overlooking a beautiful ocean.
There are some cool-lounge pieces for hanging out around the villa, and some more beautiful, going-out pieces that would flow well in the island breeze.
I imagine ~
Sitting and staring at bon fires, huge wooden Spas,
cracking coconuts, amazing cuisine, floating in the ocean
and of course long strolls by the ocean front!
PARADISE FOUND IT
EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH ELLE-MAY
What are your favorite things about Sunshine Coast?
The landscape and open space for sure! I love being near the ocean and having the mountain ranges only half an hour away. It is still quite a quiet place to live, and I love that. It is honestly so beautiful here!
Who is your style icon?
I get inspiration mainly from beautiful films, or nature so I can't pin point someone who I always look to for inspiration.
What did you want to be when you were a child?
I wanted to have a chocolate factory ^_^ And I still do haha!
What inspires you to become a photographer?
Other photographers I used to follow on Flickr. Kirsty Mitchell was one of them, a girl who put her imagination into a beautiful series of images. And I guess that's what I always wanted to do. It's a form of expressing myself, kind of like music but it's all visual.
What is your favorite color for lipstick?
That's a good question! I like Twig by MAC, it's like a muted, musk, earthy deep pink. I bought my first in Dubai in 2010 and have gone through about 3 more sticks since!
If you could choose anyone in the world to be with you for a day, who would that be?
Hm, that's hard. I am so happy with the people I have around me, maybe I would spend it with the queen, just because I think she is so lovely!
Do you believe in love at first sight?
I am not sure, I have never been in love and I'm more attracted to good character then exterior, I'd be interested to see.
What music are you listening to now?
On my playlist right now I have..
1. Youth - Ben Khan
2. Now you see me - Skogsra
3. You're the best - Wet
4. Around town - The Kooks
5. Heart beats slow - Angus & Julia stone
6. Ivory - Movement
7. Now you see everything - Stephen Steinbrink
What can’t you live without?
God, my imagination, my family
What is your biggest splurge?
Probably chocolate, I can spend a lot on an exotic cocoa blend. (so lame but it's true)
