Interview with Amanda Shadforth

Interview with Amanda Shadforth
September 5, 2017 Natasha Schweitzer

We spoke with the wonderful Amanda Shadforth, the Creative Director of Oracle Fox – one of the world’s most recognised fashion destinations.

NS: You have been wearing NS since the brand started in 2015. What has it been like to watch the brand grow over the past two years?

AS: It’s been so exciting to see a designer from my home state create an international brand presence, gaining industry respect for her beautiful work. Natasha’s aesthetic is timeless and coveted, so it’s no surprise that girls all over the world are attracted to her work. 

What I love the most is that the brand is a family affair with Natasha and Alex creating the magic together, so it’s a beautiful female fronted creative company.  I feel lucky to know the Natasha Schweitzer girls and to have been here to watch their brand grow, I’m excited to see what happens as the brand moves into the future.

NS: What would be your favourite piece from NS so far?

AS: The Marion Earrings are my favourite! I love the story behind these earrings and how they integrate such a strong connection to Natasha and Alexandra’s mum and her beautiful work from the past. 

NS: How do you like to style it?

I have two piercings in one of my ears so I like to wear just one of the Marion Earrings at a time with a finer NS piece. Mixing and matching finer pieces with statement pieces is my go to styling trick for accessories. 

NS: You will be travelling for SS18 fashion week soon. Where are you most looking forward to visiting, and do you have a beloved local spot there? 

 AS: Yes, I will soon be travelling to Paris for the SS18 shows, I feel so lucky that it really does feel like a second home to me now. I love the European way of living, everything moves at such a nice pace, it’s almost an old school approach to life, people still believe in sitting down to dine and they still read books rather than being immersed? (enveloped) in technology all the time. As a photographer I love shooting in Paris, the light is so beautiful, it’s almost as though it is naturally filtered. Not to mention the architecture, language, the cobblestone streets and food… So I love everything really hehe. 

NS: What jewellery do you like to take with you when you travel?

AS: I tend to go a little bit overboard when I travel and take quite a few pieces with me, especially if I’m travelling for work or to fashion week. It’s always a good idea to have as many options as possible so you have the variety to experiment.
