Breakfast with Tash

We didn’t actually breakfast (we so should have) but we did catch up with the beautiful Natasha Williams from Breakfast With Audrey one sunny Sydney morning. Tash shared her tips for summer style and escaping the heat, she also styled these 2 looks using pieces from our current S/S 13’ ‘the light organic’ collection.

Tell us about your style staples or current high rotation pieces;

 Style staples for me are things that will last a lifetime. My favourites have to be a beautiful leather jacket, a perfect pair of boyfriend jeans,a classic white Equipment shirt, and a statement bag (mine currently is Celine).

 In what way has Audrey Hepburn influenced your personal approach?

 I think there is alot to be said for the way Audrey, along with her pal Givenchy influenced the modern era of style. She had a talent for making the plainest peacoat look like it was priceless, and I think alot of that has to do with her inner confidence and beauty, as cliched as that may sound. I think thats what I look to most, her passion and strength- her later work with UNICEF is of great inspiration to me, proving you can have a love of Givenchy and Valentino and also give back to the world doing something that makes a profound difference.

Any exciting projects coming up for you?

 I definitely have a few things happening in the next few months. BWA will be hitting LFW in Feb, and I have a project happening in Thailand later this year. For the most part though, we are building the BWA presence collaborating with lots of amazing designers like you guys!

Where will we find you this summer?

My fiance and I have a weekly breakfast club with some of our best friends that happens around Sydney’s North Shore- our favourite is Balmoral Bathers in summer. Or at the dog beach so our new puppy Ellie can have a swim too. Otherwise lying on our bathroom floor trying to escape the heat.

Was there a particular piece from our summer collection you particularly loved?

 Yes! The orange dress I picked for the second shot is AMAZING. Also those Vegan leather visors…TO DIE FOR.
