A monument to modernist architecture in the heart of Perth’s CBD, Council House celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and to commemorate the occasion, the amazing peeps at City of Perth (in particular the consistently incredible Di Star) invited X-Press Fashion into the building’s hallowed halls for our Autumn editorial shoot. To complement the building’s aesthetic I opted for retro styling choices, recreating iconic 1960s looks with contemporary garments. Narcisa from Scene was the obvious pick when it came to choosing a female model – with her long locks and gorgeous gap tooth (which kinda makes me wish I didn’t have adolescent orthodontics), Narcisa gives Megan Draper a run for her money (albeit without the Zou Bisou Bisou rendition).

Big props to the creative team who made the shoot possible: Aaron McPolin, Ali Price, Heidi Eves and my trusty assistant Hannah Kasmadi. The full edition hits the streets of Perth and online next Wednesday. In the meantime I thoroughly suggest you take a stroll down to Council House to check out their 50th anniversary exhibition which takes a look at the building’s history and highlights (find out more here).
