Deck the Halls

Being responsible for lighting Swarovski’s QVB tree at tonight’s ceremony was surely a mitigating factor for the speedy approach of a New Year for which I’m not at all mentally prepared.

  • Gorgeous photos Margaret!
    As for my killer Christmas plans – I would love to get away somewhere to have some me-time as well!

  • LAE

    If anyone deserves a bit of down-time and me-time, I think it’d be you, and it’s a mark of a certain kind of success to have multiple cities that can evoke home. This is my first New Years in Sydney in two years – I am slightly nervous about the heat but also sort of excited to stay put and ‘reframe’, so to speak. Best wishes for your exams, from one exam-revising uni student to another (:

  • All the best for exams!! It is indeed crazy how fast the year has gone by just like that. And soon we’ll be reflecting upon it as we count down to the New Year… wow!

    I hope to spend Christmas atop Mt Fuji, sharing sake with Santa and toasting a job well done

  • Shloka Narang

    Every shot is more breath taking than the next – stunning!

    My family doesn’t really celebrate Christmas either – It was never a really big thing growing up in India but whenever we travelled to London/Europe I used to soak in every little bit of christmas spirit there was available. Although I do find it strange that we haven’t even officially hit November and London is gearing up for the Christmas of a lifetime… might as well get into the spirit! I’ll be back in Indi this Christmas, but lots of Christmas cheer coming with me! x

  • Vik

    Christmas to me is like a group of relatives come together to “celebrate” a holiday and immediately regret their decisions on going home for christmas.
    However, I love all of your photographs and you are a great stylist !!!!

    Your photography skills is truly amazing and what i feel also different from so many accomplished people in this industry. These are captivating and a such a high level of focus on the cloths that there is not even one distracting element in any piece. The background enhances and compliments your work.
