Bright Young Things

I was instantly drawn to these images of colorfully dressed Aussie girls.. honestly who else can pull off bright coral lipstick, shredded tie dye shirts, & gold lamé mini skirts?! I love the carefree sense of style and models that genuinely look like they're having a ball during the photo shoot!

When I found out the photographer, Nirrimi Hakanson was only SEVENTEEN years old, I was even more taken aback! I'm super impressed. She is incredibly talented-- take a look through her archives; this girl has a bright future in fashion photography ahead of her!

It makes me so happy to see pictures like these & read blogs like all of yours & see the future of fashion emerging!

xoxo, lauren

Their braids are messy-perfect, I love it. I wish I could braid my hair like that.. but I don't have the patience to learn from YouTube videos, ha. I'm so into tie-dye right too, especially the new Proenza Schouler stuff for Spring! It's so fun

It's crazy, finding photographers and artists as young as that. It makes me feel old, and i haven't even graduated yet! But they are great photos.
Have you seen larajadephotography.co.uk? Lara Jade is our age, 20, and getting paid very well as a photographer. She started her business at 15. I used to like her photography, but it's not my style anymore. It is fantastic though.
