Back in 2014 the theme for the annual Eurobodalla Fibre Textiles Artist Group fashion show was OUTRAGEOUS!
Truly there were some outrageous creations.
Click on the the video below to enjoy a slideshow viewing of just some of the creative garments that were on parade that flamboyant evening.
To create different "looks" I sometimes get hold of wigs to mix things up when working with one model.
These are from a series I shot documenting a private collection of vintage clothing back in my student days.
My two years of photography studies in Hobart coincided with my nieces last two years of highschool, so when I was in need of a model for a project, good old Gracie would find time in her ridiculously busy schedule to come and play dressups with me in the fantastic studio at the Tasmanian Polytechnic.
Hours of fun! So many laughs were had during the making of these photographs.
Oh and Grace, I still have the out takes in the archives . . .
Pity I missed dragging them out for your 21st, oh well, it will give you something to look forward to at your 50th!

Got a spare 2 minutes and 7 seconds? Check out this little video slideshow of just some of the highlights - while sadly I couldn't get around to view the whole programme, I gave it a jolly good try. Eurobodalla has a wealth of talented artists and I had the pleasure of documenting some of the fabulous art on exhibition plus the artists behind the work during the recent ten day River of Art Festival.
Crank up the volume and hold on to your hats! Helen
Here's a wee sneak peek from last Sunday's fashion shoot. While I don't want to give too much away before the up coming Outrageous Fashion Show, I am dying to share more images.
This is just a snippet of a fantastic felted headpiece by the very talented Keedah Throssell.
I'm so pleased to have met so many very talented designers/creators over the years and I love having the opportunity to shoot their work.
Mothers Day was spent with two mums and daughters working on documenting just some of the many fabulous wearable art creations by members of the Eurobodalla Fibre Textiles Artists Group for this years Fashion Show.

This years theme is OUTRAGEOUS - so anything goes! Included are outfits entitled "Fireworks" "Gilded Bird" and "Bra-ssy" to name just a few. Put together using mediums of wool, wire, feathers, films, upcycled "treasure" etc etc - the creativity of EFTAG knows no boundaries!
Many thanks to the designers who provided their garments yesterday, to Sue Barford for the use of her studio also to Monika for her fabulous contribution in the hair and make up department.
Young Molly and Alice were truly great to work with and they amazed me with their change in character with each change of outfit - a great team effort all round! Thanks everyone, Helen.
The last Sunday of every month a bunch of Blues musicians gather at Malua Bay to share their musical talents and I had the good fortune to be invited last sunday. Well I really should get out more - some great entertainment was on offer including singer/songwriter
