Muse: Erin Shea
We spend a few minutes with Australian model, Erin, as she captures her favourite pieces from the Mayhem collection - reflecting how they made her feel.
My name is... Erin Shea. I am… inquisitive, creative, a feminist, an adventurer, a hobby enthusiast, a model. It all started when… I was born I guess! In a country town called Orange, which is especially beautiful in Autumn. I lived there up until I was 18 then moved to Wollongong and started a psychology & philosophy degree. Then I deferred and moved to Sydney/Bondi to model full time. Which brings be to the now, I'm currently in New York working and floating about. Home is… Where the heart is. My style is… eclectic. I love things most when they shouldn't really go together, but when you put them on a person they tell a story perfectly. The best backstage beauty trick i’ve learnt… hydration! And that coconut oil is the best makeup remover. I keep healthy by… being creative, being in nature (both at the same time if I'm lucky!). Also I walk everywhere, and I love hiking and & yoga. I look up to… my Mum. She's strong and kind at the same time. The last book I read was… The art of loving by Erich Fromm. But my favourite book is… The Women who run with Wolves -Clarissa Pinkola Estés. I unwind by… watering my plants. In 10 years I hope to be… peaceful. Favourite place in NYC is… anywhere high up, when I can see the whole city all at once. Jewellery to me is… expression. My most treasured piece is… those which have been passed down from family members. I wear one of my mums ruby rings nearly every day.
