the wwf’s living planet report 2014, which discovered that we’ve lost half of all the world’s wildlife in the past fourty years, showed more specifically that the population of common dormice dropped by 43 percent between 1993 and 2010.

not only are dormice vulnerable to habitat loss, but they’re hesitant to cross open fields, and the grubbing out of hedgerows in recent decades has removed the wildlife corridors between woods that has allowed the dormice to move more freely to new habitat.  

dormice have very specialized diets of berries and nuts, and with less habitat they are unable to seek out enough food to fatten up before their six month hibernation. (click pic x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x)

Horst photographed surrealist artist Salvador Dali’s costumes for the ballet entitled Bacchanale, of which Dali designed the set, costumes and wrote the libretto. Taking a cue from Horst’s whimsical and fantastical image, Tim Walker photographed models Olga Sherer and Alice Gibb in the editorial It’s a Magical World for Vogue Italia’s January 2008 issue

Australian Fashion Week 2015

Show after Show, designers display their Spring Summer collections in the heart of Sydney. The eyes were all watching Australian fashion week, which didn’t fail to impress. The streets where buzzing with industry designers, models, bloggers, editors, and photographers capturing the moments.  

To start the week off, Carla Zampatti marking her 50 years in fashion held a marvellous show in the stunning Sydney Opera House. Wrapping up the week with a bang, “Romance Was Born”, held a remarkable show which oozed creativity, held in the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Both these show were my personal highlights of the week.
