Twenty year old Western Australian student Kaylene Bederson topped your vote for fave style & fashion look, September 2016. We teamed her up with popular Perth Designer Jonté Pike of Jonté Designs for this photo shoot feature.
Kaylene was having a bit of fun with friends at the Perth Fashion Festival when our photographer snapped her. “I was laughing at my friends looking at me and snapchatting me.” Totally surprised by her win, Kaylene only knew she’d topped the vote when she received an email from us. “Oh my gosh! I got the email… I was completely shocked!! I didn’t think I could be voted and win for that matter. That’s awesome.”
“I like to think my style goes according to my moods. It’s unique. I take a lot of inspiration from what I view online and instagram, especially with high end brands. I take something that looks similar and make it look high end. I love op-shopping and finding things that are quite different and mixing them together with different tones, prints and textures. I love putting combinations together that most people wouldn’t wear, but it works extremely well for me.”
Kaylene was excited to be invited to Jonté Designs studio in Balcatta for the photo shoot. Jonté styled five different looks for Kaylene to model from her latest range. Shot by Perth photographer Tristan Jud, here are all five looks. Let us know which look’s your favourite!
