University student wins national fashion photography award

The art series combines photography, models, drawings European backdrops, historical references and symbolism, to create works based on historical truths.
Alexia's previous works include the Women of the World series (Australia) in which she profiles University of Newcastle graduates Rowena and Juliana Foong, two of the three Foong sisters behind the fashion label High Tea With Mrs Woo.
The series also features fellow University of Newcastle graduate Gillian Bencke, the creator of Bencke, a label of wearable art and dolls.
Alexia will become a regular contributor to Harpers BAZAAR and has been approached by Canon to endorse their products.
