Elyse Knowles STELLAR Cover 2018

Being on the cover of Stellar this week makes me feel very, very proud. Stellar graces the households of so many Aussie homes every weekend, so it's an incredible privilege to have worked with their team. Even if you pop your take away coffee and toast on my head this Sunday as you're reading the paper, I'll still feel grateful to be in your home :)

As you can see, the shoot was all about creating an 80's vibe. Myer styled it beautifulyl using their top designers - you can have a look at the full Myer AW range here. Worn out denims, oversized jackets, cropped tops & layers of long necklaces. I was born in the 90's so to travel back in time for the day was a blast! Bring back 80's fashion I reckon! 

I flew up to Sydney for this shoot. I knew it was going to be an amazing one instantly because of the great team attached (see the team below). Talented creatives alongside top end designer pieces from Myer... a pretty perfect ensemble! At the time of the shoot, there was only a possibility of me being on the cover. I think the word "possibility" gave me an extra dose of motivation on the day! I wanted to create something so special, that there was no other option that to nail that cover spot.  

And it happened! When you all saw the Stellar teaser on Instagram on Friday, that was the first time I knew I'd made it! No joke. I had no idea! I jumped up and down screaming for a while. I was (and still am) over the moon & full of excitement! 

I wanted to prove to everyone that I worthy of this cover ... so I am truely stoked! Thank you so much to the Stellar team & everyone who took park in the shoot on the day. It was one I won't forget ... and Mum won't ever throw away!

Keep working hard & ever harder for the things you want guys. Nothing is out of bounds when you're committed to a goal.
