Nicole Clulee and Chris Landon. Photos: Katherine Lowe Besides blogging, I have done about a billion jobs in the fashion industry over the years, from working in retail to dressing at fashion shows, assisting PR agents to selling fabric to designers, booking models to styling menswear shoots.

#763 The photo you didn’t see – Michael Whittaker and Derya Parlak


Image /Marissa Findlay The official magazine of NZ Fashion Week (The Guide) has just come out, featuring a Michael Whittaker/Derya Parlak editorial shot by Marissa Findlay, styled by Chris Lorimer with makeup by Margo Regan. I’d heard there were a few sexy boy/girl photos in the mix but sadly none of them made it into the printed version. Big mistake!
