Name: Hayley Hughes
Nick name: Fashion Hayley
Profession: Fashion Student/Blogger/Street Fashion Photographer/Stylist
Location: Melbourne, Australia
I am really passionate about Street Fashion, the more zany the outfit the better. That is why I love Tokyo so much, the street fashion there is insane!
How I got my break: Blogging has opened up a lot of doors in the industry for me.
My 3 top photo tricks:
1. Make the person I am photographing relaxed.
2. Try and match/mimic the background to the persons outfit in colour, shape or texture.
3. Take more photos than needed that way there is ALWAYS at least 1 good shot.
My style in a sentence: Colourful, bold and bright and always left of centre.
Travel destination and tips:
I lived in Tokyo for a year and I believe it is the ultimate destination for shopping and people watching. I recommend the Laforet Department store in Harajuku for some amazing local designer clothes and vintage shopping in Koenji.
I bet you didn’t know I can: Speak fluent Engrish (Japanese English) which isn’t really a talent
I get my inspirations from: My friends inspire me all the time.
My latest project is about: Alice in Wonderland
My last purchase: A sketch book for Uni
My current favourite mecho item:
The Tokyo trip article about Japanese Street Fashion and Style
Pssstt…..One time I………
Too many stories to tell really, most of them would be “you had to be there” moments for it to actually be funny. My whole life is one funny embarrassing moment after another.
