Undone Pink Star Walk

Undone Pink Star Walk

Hi! So I have signed up to walk 10km wearing pink clothing (in my mind I will something like Lindsey Wixson and Georgia May Jagger here in these Vogue shoots) to raise money for the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation and would LOVE for you to sponsor me… Just click here!…

Kizzy & Caitlin

Kizzy & Caitlin

Here is a small shoot I did with my little sister Kizzy and my beautiful friend (and fellow photographer Caitlin McKone). Kizzy has stretch marks (not very noticeable) and often worries about her body image since puberty meant that she wasn’t super slim anymore. I wanted to do a series…

Yang Fudong: First Spring

Yang Fudong: First Spring

Undone was lucky enough to attend the opening night for Auckland Art Gallery’s latest ‘Yang Fudong Filmscapes‘, and wanted to share our own favourite piece of the Shanghai-based filmmaker’s work – a short, beautiful, surreal black and white film for Prada’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection, titled ‘First Spring’ and inspired by…

Undone At NZFW: Julian Danger

Undone At NZFW: Julian Danger

“That’s Julian—” whispers a model to another model gesturing with a glance at Amy-Rose Goulding: head designer and head honcho at Julian Danger. She’s standing in the center of the space backstage, with a lint roller clutched closely to her chest, slowly circling in a 360 eyeing up the scene,…

Undone Zodiac

Exhibit

In the day to day life of a pro hairdresser, creative urges get set aside to make way for “just a trim” or “basically just the same as last time” (so guilty, sorry), which is why, as undoubtedly highly creative people, it’s pretty epic to get the chance to go…

Undone Music: Tiny Ruins

Undone Music: Tiny Ruins

The first time I heard the name ‘Tiny Ruins’ was in a cheap apartment in Rome. It was our last night and a friend saw that she was playing in the centre of the city, at a bar called Black Market. We brought 750ml bottles of beer from the corner…

Sylvester Forever

Sylvester Forever

Kate’s naughty little sister has a penchant for bad boys. She’s run away to L.A. with her actor/ musician/ model boyfriend, wearing matching airforce jackets and drinking black, black coffee. By day she’s doodling diary entries in a striped knit and preppy shirtdress. She’s disguising herself in an anorak for free…

Tokyo Is Ours

Tokyo Is Ours

My roommate and I lived off homemade banana ice-cream (bananas were the cheapest fruit and it suited our ‘model budget’). We sat under the air-con until dusk most days and left our shoebox apartment just before the sun was setting, to avoid the Tokyo summertime heat. We fell asleep on…

Wildflowers: Part Two

Wildflowers: Part Two

On approaching Aimee of Hope & Organic to see if we could use some of her wonderful photos for our initial post on wildflowers, we discovered an equal love of wild flowers and wild nature, and knew we had to have Aimee tell her own story as well… I fell in love…

Undone Zodiac: Leo

Undone Zodiac: Leo

Leo 23 July – 21 August Leo is a fixed, masculine, fire sign ruled by the sun, and just like the astral body that governs them, natives of this sign have a tendency to assume that the world revolves around them. Suitably labelled the ‘king of the zodiac’, the strength…

Karma Camellias

Karma Camellias

At this time of year camellias are in full force. I have a soft spot for their ruffled petals and delicate scent – if only their vase life was as impressive as their looks! They are romantic ice cream scoops of loveliness! Camellias begin to bruise and brown within minutes…

New Girls On The Block: Harman Grubisa

New Girls On The Block: Harman Grubisa

These days it’s a less than frequent occurrence that an emerging fashion label, no matter how special or significant, is able to open or sees the value in a physical store, so with the opening of a ‘bricks and mortar’ by Harman Grubisa (Madeleine Harman and Jessica Grubisa) we went behind…
