Last month we were busy shooting the Little Joe Woman by Gail Elliott Resort collection in beautiful Bali, our home away from home. We flew half of our team over from Sydney and used talent from Bali to shoot our Oceania Resort 2014 collection in a studio in Canggu. There are some incredibly talented people here now as Bali has become a very chic place to have a home. The Resort collection is full of exquisite, easy to wear pieces that have a distinct undone sensuality and charm. It's about fun and youthful dressing for that laid back yet polished summer look. We were ecstatic to have the über stylish and incredibly cool Cisco Tschurtschenthaler on hand to model the collection.

Little Joe Woman by Gail Elliott Oceania Resort 2014
Cisco has a distinct beach babe vibe with a dash of 70's Rock and roll to boot. Her wavy blonde hair and striking blue eyes (not to mention smoking hot bod) were the perfect canvas for showcasing that effortless Little Joe Woman glamour. Originally from Munich, Cisco's real name is Franziska Tschurtschenthaler. Her Australian friends couldn't pronounce her name, so they nicknamed her "Cisco". With homes in both Sydney and Bali, Cisco is a well travelled model and has enjoyed much success in recent years, including two Vogue Paris editorials and a cover for Amica Italy - let's just say she's fast becoming quite the 'IT' girl.
Gail Elliott - Creative Director of Little Joe Woman by Gail Elliott and model Cisco Tschurtschenthaler.
An avid surfer, health enthusiast and Yogi, she's the epitome of the modern day model - stylish and business savvy with a real zest for life. It was an absolute pleasure working with Cisco, she brought such a peaceful spirit and positive energy to the shoot, which really shines through in the look book. During our time with her in Bali, she was kind enough to share some of her favourite things with us!
