I got talking with one of the directors here at Elegantly Scant over a cup of tea and found out that she had no idea who Tahnee Atkinson was when she first casted her for the Putting On The Ritz collection.
I was so surprised because it was just after Ms Atkinson won Australia’s Top Model. Soon after I remember reading the reports of the judges, fashion industry professionals and other contestants criticizing her weight. I asked the director if this was a reason why she picked her, she replied with “Tahnee just looked healthy to me, someone that could definitely bring the whole collection together and give it some va va voom!”.
That’s definitely what I was thinking and we found a lot of our customers love seeing pictures of her! She’s absolutely stunning.
When designing new collections she does spring to mind for a model, and we don’t usually do repeats!
Isabel Lucas and Adrian Grenier dropped in on our Paddington Boutique this sunny Saturday shopping up a storm! Isabel is a loyal customer of the Elegantly Scant lingerie, buying hand crafted items back when we had a stall at Paddington Markets!
Grenier took a phone photo of our Halloween window display to send to his mother saying “a taste of Sydney”
One last Dita tease….the burlesque beauty gushed over our handmade silk kimonos so we had to give her one for being such an adoring fan!
We were so flattered by her lovely letter personally written to us that we really wanted to give her something beautiful! Even though she had filled her shopping bags with many gorgeous items, nothing beats the luxurious feeling you get from a handmade silk kimono!
