A few weekends ago I went to Sydney with my sister and brother to the Semi Permanent Conference as my sister was an invited speaker!!   It is such an honour to be invited to speak at this conference and to be seen up there among world class artists, designers and photographers. I can remember Bec first submitting work to the Semi-P book when she was still a graphic design student and I don't think she ever imagined she would one day be the up on stage presenting.

Some of the other amazing speakers included Roman Coppola (brother of Sofia Coppola),  Benja Harney a paper engineer, who you would recognise from doing the recent set of MBFWA Romance Was Born popup!!!  And Derek Henderson whos photography is in basically every fashion magazine you open.  Just after the conference I bought Harpers Bazaar flicked it open and saw Derek's work staring out at me.

Also Bec Parsons who is a regular photographer for Russh, Oyster, Sportsgirl to name a few... and has her own amazing Fashion photography book called Love Want (more about that in another post).
