Oyster Magazine's 'Crystal Castles' image series is captured by photographer Kane Skennar who teams up with visionary wardrobe stylist Mark Vassallo. Lensed in the Byron hinterlands, this editorial highlights Crystal Castle, a hidden rain forest landmark that boasts oversized crystal and mineral formations.

Stylist Mark Vassallo dresses the fashion story's model star in a wardrobe of festival-themed fashions that are a fresh nod to the 70s. Whether taking cues from Woodstock or channeling a psychedelic Jimmy Hendrix vibe, this image series combines colored photography with hippie chic fashion staples.

Hair and makeup for Oyster Magazine's 'Crystal Castles' editorial is courtesy of Nicholas Morley who works alongside fashion coordinator Marisa Sidoti to create vivid hair looks. These hair styles compliment the photoshoot's vivid wardrobe staples from labels that include Rainbow Shop, Buffalo girls and Thrills among other thrifty names.
