Dress Up: Meet the Ladies


In a recent episode of HBO’s hit tv series ‘Girls’, slightly neurotic and always-on-the-look-out-for-love character Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) offers advice from a book titled ‘Listen Ladies: A Tough Love Approach to the Tough Game of Love’. Unimpressed with her preaching, the bohemian and sexually adventurous Jesser (Jemima Kirke), who finds the book’s view point rather incongruous to her own  questions exactly who the ‘ladies’ are. 

It seems, this season Dress Up designer Stephanie Downey had been pondering a similar, albeit less romantically charged question as she created her current collection ‘Ladies Invited’. In a quest to showcase the young women who live their lives in her clothing Downey worked with talented Sydney based photographer Natalie Nikitovic on a series of intimate portraits of beautiful girls wearing the Ladies Invited collection. 

Emotive, raw and unprentious, we fell in love with the images from the campaign and in September held an intimate night showcasing the full photo series. Today we thought we should also share a few of our favourites. You can shop Incu's edit of the Dress Up Ladies Invited collection in store now.
