 TGB: Favourite beach to visit in summer?

LP: Burleigh Beach on the Gold Coast! I’m always there having a good chill. I am also always at Stradbroke, my friends and I go to a ‘secret’ beach, we always put on chill tunes and eat A LOT of fruit!

TGB: Describe Australia in three words?

LP: Relaxed style, Beautiful and full of sharks
TGB: Dream location to visit one day?

LP: New York and LA! Who doesn’t want to go?? The fashion and also where all my favourite rappers grew up!!!

TGB: When did your love affair with fashion happen?

LP: When I was 13 I started to create a small fashion blog, however my style was very different back then! I used to dress in flower crowns and wear crochet etc. Overtime my style has developed into a minimalist. I have always been in love with fashion designing, I have books full of designs over the years.

Laura Plusnin - The Great Beyond

TGB: Best thing about being Laura?

LP: I’m really down to earth, so if you see me in public come say hi and I will probably invite you to come have brunch with me!

TGB: Where do you get your style inspiration from?

LP: I’m inspired by my favourite style bloggers such as Kaity from the Modern Legacy, Sara from Harper and Harley, Margaret Zhang and Amanda from Oracle Fox. I have met Margaret Zhang before and she is amazing to talk to, she’s so down to earth and that’s when I fell in love with her style! She is my future goals!!

TGB: Instagram or Facebook?

LP: Instagram forever!!!

TGB: Now you have a pretty cool heritage, tell us where you are from?

LP: I was born in Brisbane, but on my dad’s side they are Russian so I’m half Russian and the other half Australian of course. In fact I just recently celebrated Russian Christmas!


TGB: How do you put an outfit together?

LP: I get my inspiration then stare at my wardrobe for about 10mins thinking of the pieces I have and ways I could style them. Then I set out a few different flat lays, after all that I try the looks on! Sometimes the flat lays don’t look so good on, so I just change it up and it works out in the end.

TGB: Best staple to have in ones wardrobe?

LP: Plain black, white and grey tees. They are so easy to style! You can dress up tees with a skirt or dress down with some comfy pants!

TGB: Also. . . favourite The Great Beyond piece?

LP: Definitely be the Elara wrap skirt in black! I’m obsessed with that piece!

TGB: Best advice you were ever given?

LP: I’m in year 12, this year and I was told to, “Enjoy your last year of school and don’t worry about the future, everything will fall into place.” Also really good advice told by a very wise man, “Started from the bottom, now we here.”
