I remember watching this on the ABC as a child. From memory, it was on just before I had to leave home to go to school...or was it when I got home from school?
Anyway, this is my small tribute to Ronnie James Dio, may he Rest In Peace.

I am one of 'those people' that is lucky to be surrounded by friends that are not only faithful, but very, very talented.
One of those friends is Nicole Reed. I have known Nicole for 10 years or so, and I remember in the early days, my knees would go weak when I saw her as I thought she was just "so cool". Nicole is soft spoken, intelligent and a super talented photographer.
Well, I still think she is "so cool" and love her dearly as a friend, but I can also say that I am a big fan of her as an artist too.
Photographing a broad range of subjects, for tattoo, fashion and streetwear magazines, the thing I love most about Nicole's work is that her photos always look 'alive'.
Her wedding photography is unobtrusive and natural and the many photos she takes of her surroundings in her many travels, make you feel like you could get lost in that moment in time.
I hope to shoot with her soon, but in the meantime, please check out her work via the links below.

At first glance, you may think that this dress is no ground breaking design. This is true, however, what makes my dress stand apart from the others is the fabric.
This dress is made from the highest quality cotton sateen, which means it's cotton with about 5% spandex/elastaine in it. It is thick and a dream to both sew and wear.
I have only half lined this dress keeping in mind that not everyone wants to wear a lined dress. It has an invisible zip closure in the back and leopard print trim. The 2 inch wide belt is included and I have not added belt loops to this dress, allowing the owner to wear the dress with or without a belt.
You can see a close up of it here and it is available from my online store.
Oh, and it's in limited run of three, I have already sold two so there is only one left!
