Fashion should be fun and with my photography I love to create those fun moments.
Having shot all these people during this cool project, and talking to them about their favourite bands, how could I go past the lyrics master Jacqui. This girl prides herself in knowing all the words to Bat Out Hell, and many many other songs. And she knows a thing or two about rock, hehe. So to finish off this project with Marcs and their ARIA T-shirts, I left the best for last. Jacqui is wearing the Emma Louise T-shirt by MARCS.
Jacqui, do you remember your first ever band T-shirt ?
– Yes, The Dropbears.
Do you still have it ?
– No, it was (sort of) a very long term loan from my boyfriend, the singer, and I returned it a few years after we broke up because it was vintage by then and he was probably the more rightful owner.
What’s the latest live act you saw?
– That's a little shameful because it was so long ago! Nick Cave at the Enmore – with my kids. Always an awesome gig with the king, but to share it with my kids just made it even better. Only problem was, we had to sit.
– The Mercy Seat. The long version. Loud!
What makes a good band T-shirt?
– The cut! So many band T-shirts for women are cut so badly. Either too big and shapeless, or way too tight. A great graphic makes me want to wear it. I also like the tour dates for the memorabilia.
This project is a collaboration with iconic Australian fashion brand MARCS and ARIA (Australian Record Industry Association). MARCS has launched five limited edition band T-shirts, all designed to support the #UnitedByMusic campaign. Let’s support our home grown Aussie music!
