It’s always exciting when an email from stylist Molly King lands in your inbox. Known on the industry grapevine and Instagram as Foxy Zingaro, this Queensland born now Sydney based fashion entrepreneur has founded herself naturally in the industry. Her effortless matching of pieces is always a subtle but striking masterpiece. This would be the second time we would work with Molly. The last time on our summer campaign we were so impressed with the way she brought the story to life. Watching her work here in Byron over a year ago, we developed an understanding of the effectiveness of her work – remembering distinctly her saying she never uses too many things to style her shoots, keeping her tools consistent throughout the photography, creating a real story – “It needs to look like they are really wearing it”….
Her judgment can be trusted completely.
Molly’s vision for us was part of her Australiana project in the Northern Territory outback, late last year. With its open spaces and breathtaking colour palette – we were thrilled to be on board something so special and unique.
Recently, we asked Molly a few questions to reflect back on her time in the heart of our beautiful, untouched Australian wilderness… to help us understand the meanings behind the images challenged by the forces of nature.
Tell us a bit more about what inspired you to chose the Outback for this special project?
“I wanted to explore the heart of Australia and have a true experience shooting at some really special landscapes. I figured everyone goes to Europe, America and tropical islands, why not shoot in the outback??
We have it so good here in our own country.”
Tell us a bit more about how the shoot came together, getting to the Outback and where you stayed?
“My close friend was living in Alice Springs and we were always throwing ideas at each other about destination shoots and the Northern Territory was a no brainer... It just sort of fell into our plans and we were so inspired by our country. We slept in our swags and camped the whole trip, which made it a truly raw experience. It was challenging at times for sure with weather conditions and long days.”
Are there any particular emotions that come to mind while you reminisce on being out there?
“I was quite taken back when we got to Uluru…
Something about the red centre that is so sacred and spiritual. It made me feel very calm and peaceful. I became quite emotional actually. There are so many hidden locations to explore, it's very special.”
Tell us about your favourite TBR piece.
“The Jordy Tee dress in white is just an easy go-to staple for many occasions. It’s what I love most about the brand. Definitely a winner.”
Needless to say Molly has an appreciation for simplistic style and key pieces are her favourite way to build an outfit, focusing her Bare Road staples as a backdrop for stand out accessories from Poppy Lissiman and Hartwood House – shop her picks here….
