Second French fashion magazine showcases diversity in Gympie

Vivienne Wynter

Gympie’s diverse, beautiful young people are in the international spotlight for the second time this year, this time in French beauty and fashion magazine Malvie.

Fashion designer Cindy Vogels, of fashion brand Racy and Lucky and photographer Brea Martin collaborated with models Justin O’Mara, Ariel Astill, Shae Holliday (not pictured) and Imogen Winkley on the shoot in Gympie’s CBD which featured in French fashion magazine Moevir in October.

A fresh set of fashion spreads from the same shoot, titled Neon Outlaws, shot at Play Back Gympie was published this month in a special edition of Malvie magazine celebrating diversity.

Cindy says the goal of the fashion shoot, all done on a volunteer basis, was to ignite the potential of the creative community in Gympie.

‘Neon Outlaws represents rebelling against social stereotypes, fighting for diversity and banding together in vivid dreams and brazen Western Style.

‘Our region sometimes gets a bad rap for stale and pale attitudes. I believe it’s a creative utopia.

‘We wanted to shine a positive light on our hometown youth,’ she said.

‘We look forward to growing this project with the Regional Arts Development Fund and Gympie Regional Council next year, hopefully with a larger paid crew.

‘We couldn’t be prouder of what we achieved with our lil crew with stars in our eyes.

‘Watch this space.’
