Melbourne makeup artist and hair stylist Kristy Bassett shares her tips, inspiration and latest work

Summer Fashion Tips

Earlier this year I did the hair and makeup for a Bollywood film clip. It was a slick team of cameramen, producers, musicians and talent and all of us were led by Saloni, the Creative Director and stylist on set.  She's got a keen eye for trends so I'm happy that she's decided to share her summer fashion tips for 2009 with us all!

There’s nothing like the summer months to inspire a little affection. With this seasons dreamy details and flowing drapes, to the Grecian influences, there is a distinct breeze of romance in the air that will be sure to whisk and steal anyone’s heart away. This Summer get ready to float on a cloud of soft, pastel coloured fabrics; greys, dusty pinks, beiges, nudes, pale blue and creamy creams. The look has the feeling of soft satins and flowing chiffons, whether it be in a mini, midi, maxi dress or any other style that makes you feel fantastic - let there be love!

My suggestions: avoid chunky, sculptured and statement pieces; accessorize your soft romantic summer look with complimentary fine, delicate accessories.


To compliment your summer look with simple elegant pieces, check out emerging Melbourne fashion label - Landell Designs. Featured recently in Grazia Magazine, Landell by Lisa DeFazio has evening jackets, sweet skirts, sensual fabrics, glamour abounds; this label oozes elegance & sophistication.

Thanks Saloni!
