Hi all
As you might've noticed it's been a while since I've updated.
This blog is pretty labour-intensive and since I've left Sydney for the holidays I really don't have the time or resources to be working as fervently as I was before.
Don't worry though - I'll be back next year with a vengeance!
Thanks - Josh
P.S I need models! If anyone wants to get all dolled up and put in front of a camera let me know!

Karen (part two)

Continuing the fine tradition of having the best shots at the end of the roll

Probably my favourite from the set.

Let's face it, there's clearly no skill involved in making Karen look like a fox. I was actually really nervous going into this shoot in that I was worried that the photos wouldn't do her justice, but despite crappy weather, the worlds shitest cameras (I got 29 visible photographs out of 108 exposures) and extreme hangover, she still managed to look ridiculously hot. I take no credit for this.

Karen (part one)

Fascinator: David Lawrence, $60
Jacket: Vintage
Shorts: American Apparel, $70

Karen asked me to shoot her for some publicity material for her upcoming album. She's a really talented singer and a complete fox. I will be uploading more of this shoot later.

Jenna (Part Two)

The 'ol American Apparel flash-with-the-lights-off trick

Jeans: Lee, $80
Shirt: Arvust, $40

I've had this one for a while but haven't got around to uploading. Jenna was a great model, but I hesitated to upload because she wasn't a huge fan of these pictures, even though the last one is one of my favourites. Kudos to Kate for helping with the makeup on this one.


Jacket: Vintage, $60
Pants: Vintage, $30
Shoes: Op Shop, $2
Glasses: New York, St. Mark's Square Market, $7

John is a former co-worker of mine from General Pants. He's about the most energetic person you could imagine but also a surprisingly good model. These photos don't really do his hair justice; it's amazing.

It's annoying when the best shot is at the end of the roll.

Leotard: American Apparel, $40
Skirt: Made by me out of Duct Tape, $5

Kathryn is a lifelong friend of mine and is currently a studying geology at the University of Wollongong. I'd always looked forward to a chance to photograph her and she lived up to my expectations.
The skirt was a product of having too much time and duct tape on my hands, and is inspired by Jeremy Scot's yardage prints. It's a little unsturdy at the back (notice it's actually duct taped to her body), but I hope to be able to make a functioning one soon.

Hat: Vintage, New York - $10
Dress: American Apparel - $40
Bag: Vintage Louis Vuitton (op shop) - $2
Shoes: Jeffery Campbell - $100

Caitlin has one of the best wardrobes of anyone I know, so finding clothes for her to wear wasn't hard. She's got a great eye for vintage and when I saw that bag in particular I knew I had to use it. Caitlin is studying Media and Communications and Graphic Design at the University of Wollongong. I'll be going back through her wardrobe again in the future.

Singlet (worn as dress): Sebastian Tellier $40 (New York)
Scarf (as shawl): Stussy $40

Jenna is my next door neighbour and a first year Chemistry student at the University of Sydney. This is really not her style - it was actually the first time she'd teased her hair out, but it definitely will not be the last.
More from this shoot later.

Kate and Declan

Sunglasses: Paddys Markets - $5
Shoes: Converse Hi Top - Leather (New York) $40
Overalls: King Gee - Op Shop $20
Singlet (Cut From Shirt): New York -$3
Necklace: TopShop $4

Kate is my housemate, a first year student studying at the Sydney Conservatorium. This isn't really her style but she was a fantastic model and really enthusiastic.
Declan is my best friend and lives about fifty metres down the road. What he may have lacked in modelling ability he more than made up for in ribs and perfect skin.


Welcome to Peaches and Luigi.
The principle of this blog is that I want to show that fashion isn't as exclusive as people think.
You don't have to be rich and you don't have to have god given good looks.
I plan to fill this blog with shoots of normal people (mostly friends / neighbours) wearing normal clothes taken with nothing more than a $5 disposable camera. No one involved in the shoots is a professional in the fashion industry in any way.
It's just a bit of fun, and hopefully proof that in the real world you can't buy cool.
