W: Which Australian designers do you think are pushing the boundaries this season?
YS: Kym Ellery does the oversize trend brilliantly. I wore an oversized houndstooth jacket from Zimmermann in the shoot I did for Westfield that was very cool.
Also Dion Lee. I’m wearing a beautiful longline black dress with fine net insets at the neck that makes me feel super feminine. It’s a nice balance to the man-style coat.
W: How do you describe your style?
YS: I get asked this all the time and it’s a hard question to answer. I would say that I wear different things that represent the mood I’m in daily, whatever feeling that is. Having said that, as a person, I never want to feel stagnant, which is why I am always willing to experiment, try new things and just have fun with fashion.
W: When you think of Australian style, what comes to mind?
YS: Beauty and body-con. Australian girls dress to enhance their inner sexiness… or quite often, outer sexiness!
W: Are there any up-and-coming Australian and NZ designers you have your eye on?
YS: Georgia Alice, Strateas Carlucci, Maggie Marilyn.
