Elly has an innate sense of style and a distinctive eye for design that filters down through her whole life (from her interior designs to her Instagram feed!). She turned up to the shoot in her vintage Mercedes with a cute basket bag full of beautiful things sitting on the front seat, so I was really excited to shoot her for this project.

Tell us about your shoot with Elly and the space you shot her in?

I knew I wanted to do the shoot indoors because it makes sense (considering Elly's line of work) and she was instrumental in the styling of the shoot too - I love a woman who knows what she wants and what works for her. The shoot took place in an intriguing little space tucked-away behind Oxford Street in Darlinghurst called Muse. The owner of the space's name is Elly too. She has styled it so beautifully - there are so many different little pockets to shoot in. Most of the furniture is reclaimed vintage, there's a giant disco ball and also a commissioned Lister on the wall (in Elly's bedroom)!

What inspires you about Elly?
It was actually her Instagram profile that first caught my attention - she has a way of telling a story through her imagery, and I'm always looking for new sources of inspiration! But behind all of that she's also a really beautiful person too - so down to earth and her laugh is infectious!

What do you love about Elly's style?
It's never boring - the way she puts things together is unique (there's always a lot of cool little details to look at).

Why did you select Elly to profile for your collaboration with sass & bide?
To me she embodies contemporary design in every way - from her career, to her personal style, her home, her travels.
