Polished & Professional

We spotted the stylish and professional Yao Yao on her way to the office.


Yao Yao is a Communications Professional, and her dress sense is the perfect balance between being on-trend and appropriate for the corporate environment.


“When I get dressed for work I try to find the happy medium between dressing conservatively and dressing on-trend”, said Yao Yao.


“I like having fun with colour and also enjoy wearing neutrals - just like my outfit today”.


We also admired Yao Yao’s turquoise Prada bag. Her view on designer bags is that they are a wardrobe investment. The key is to look after them and buy classic styles rather than trend pieces. We concur with this style statement!


Men's Style: Well Suited

The Fashion Vault style-stalked fitness model Vivek, while judging the finals of the ASMY Swimsuit Model Competition at Tongue & Groove.


Well suited, Vivek was dressed by Simon Anau from Peter Jackson's.


"I was told you can determine someone's self-worth by the suit they wear. Although I've built a brand around the exposure of my body, a well-fitted and styled suit is what complements the person I wish to be," said Vivek.


Looking very sharp!


Timi Zipamo, Student, 20.

The Fashion Vault snapped Timi on his way through Civic. His style influences are Big Daddy Kane, Eddie Murphy and Tyson Beckford - just to name a few.


Timi is one of the few guys in Canberra to be rocking a flat top. This definitely got our attention.


When asked about fashion, Timi dresses the way he does because it increases his confidence and he loves being on trend and stylish.


Classic Chic

Jessica Discipio (stylist and designer) was spotted in Braddon on her way to meet with local boutique owners to discuss some upcoming editorial shoots.


Her style is a play on the classics, denim paired back with a white shirt. This amazing Tome shirt has a cute cut out detail on the back (partially the reason why we ran after her). Jess was fortunate enough to have this shirt hand delivered to her by the Aussie/NYC-based designer when she worked for a Sydney agency representing the label.


Look into Jess’s wardrobe and you will see that she loves supporting Australian designers. Her style is classic, with detailed touches.


DJ Sleek

While the Fashion Vault editor Deejay was busy judging the ASMY swimwear model of the year contest held at Tongue and Groove she managed to steal the MC for a street style snap.


Zannon, a Sydney DJ/Producer (signed to Lucky Ent) and Executive Producer from Velocity Show on KIIS FM was there to host the night. Looking sleek in all black you really can’t go wrong.


Zannon believes fashion is a reflection of yourself and you should wear what makes you happy. His shopping philosophy is to buy bold and statement pieces.


Overall the Fashion Vault loves that his style aligns so closely with his DJ sets. This is a great presentation of dressing for the job you want.
