The campaign was shot by fellow blogger Margaret Zhang from Shine By Three and features the gorgeous Vanderzeil styling up her creations with a mix of Australian designers and her own DIY creations. Featuring fringing, chain detail and thick ankle detail, the collection is based on a palette of black, red and nude.

To celebrate the collaboration, Geneva will be in Melbourne presenting a series of DIY events at Melbourne Central’s One Day Shopping Festival on Thursday 23 May. There is an open session at 1pm and you can register for the limited space sessions at 6pm and 7:30pm on the Melbourne Central website.
