This month, we head down under to chat up with the Russian born style icon, Dasha Gold, founder of Thetrendspotter who’s genuine enthusiasm for style blossomed into a business together with photographer husband, Colin Gold.
The multi-talented hottie is not only a model, editor, and, stylist, but also an artist, and footwear graphic designer who creatively attacks the routine of getting dressed everyday, by taking risks, and think outside of the box.
At the soul of Dasha lies true trend forecasting, with the ability to resurrect sleeping trends, and curate the freshest spins on the latest designer looks, taking over the streets of Australia with her outfitting prowess.
Behind the lenses is her husband, Colin Gold, who serves as a support for blog from SEO, website design, all-the-way to being the photographer who lenses Dasha in perfect style.

What are your favorite fashion staples?
A pair of hot pumps, booties, pop color jackets (I have so many of them), hats, classic dresses, asymmetric or maxi skirts, printed or solid color pants and a white shirt that goes with anything.
What are your 5 top fashion tips?
Tip No. 1 – Always have the basics in your wardrobe (e.g. a pair of black high heel pumps, black pants, white shirt, classic dress, red lipstick, a pair of well fitted jeans, wool coat (for colder climates), a black shoulder bag.
Tip No. 2 – Invest into the colour jackets, statement printed pants or tops, and statement accessories like bags, shoes, jewellery, hats and sunglasses.
Tip No. 3 – Choose smoky eyes or statement colour lips, never mix the two together.
Tip No. 4 – Always wear what you love and feel comfortable in, if you feel uncomfortable in the shoes or the clothes you wear it will show. It is not about following the latest trends or someone else’s opinion on what looks good and what does not. It is about getting inspired by the latest collections, finding you own personal style and dressing with confidence.
Tip No. 5 – Look after your hair; use a good shampoo and conditioner from the hairdressing salons. Try a few hairstyles and find the top 3-5 for different occasions that suit you the most. If you have coloured hair, do regular hair treatments.
