International blogging wunderkind Nicole Warne is a very busy woman indeed. Since starting her quirky, online vintage store-and-blog venture (Gary Pepper Vintage, for those not familiar) in 2009, the Central Coast local went from a part-time student/ magazine intern to fronting campaigns for the likes of Louis Vuitton and Lancôme, walking the fashion week runway and signing to IMG’s talent division. It’s not hard to see why. Her whimsical blog is a world of vibrant colours, exotic adventures and high fashion editorials that are both accessible and aspirational, packed with inspiration and glittery escapism.

Fresh off the plane from Switzerland (Warne was working there this week with Calvin Klein!), the ‘Gary Pepper Girl’ shared with us her plans for MBFWA next week (where she is working as both a host and as Lavazza’s official style consultant), chatted about the business of fashion blogging and her online shopping obsession. (Anyone who follows her blog knows she’s a massive ASOS girl!)
