In our Timeless Style Icons series, we continue here with Elizabeth Kingston from Brisbane who came to our attention on Instagram. Known by her moniker @timeless_styling, Elizabeth has garnered a loyal following with lots of comments for her posts that feature her daily outfits. Her style is undoubtedly original. She describes it as “eclectic – never in fashion and so never out of fashion – mixing designer pieces with thrifted finds.”
Definitely influenced by Japanese designers, especially Issey Miyake, Elizabeth is also a great lover of accessories and has an enormous range of jewellery, hats and scarves that often make their way into her daily posts. Her motto: “More is always better.”
Says Elizabeth “I trained as a Visual Arts teacher, majoring in Textiles (printmaking and weaving), but I currently only teach on a casual basis.
Back in the 80s and 90s, I had my own fashion label – Tpinjii Designs (from a Maltese word, meaning ‘to be drawn’), specialising in women’s wear, with the focus being on designing & printing my own fabric, colour, pattern, asymmetry and layering.”
Here are some amazing posts from Elizabeth’s Instagram account.
