Ellison, Dress Up, Antipodium, Lover, Dr Denim, Nathan Smith, Carhartt, Woooo!
I feel like the whole year is peaking in March.
Could there possibly be any more going on?!
Since my last note, I've been to Sydney twice for our Spring/Summer
Collections, so have been deliberating over orders.
The social calendar has been relentless.
I saw Paris Manhattan and Cafe de Flore at the French Film Festival
and both were fantastic.
Jane Birkin at The Powerhouse was wonderful. Such a beautiful woman.
The Dirty Three at The Tivoli were also incredible - powerful, moving, sexy, brooding and
Warren Ellis is a very funny man!
Per Purpose and Dead Farmers at Woodland were wild and we
danced to lots of great 60's and 70's stuff from DJ Checkers.
It was Ladies night at The Zoo with Brisbane band Feathers and UK band Electrelane.
Such talented woman!
The girls from Electrelane hand made these beautiful note card sets and they kindly signed
Psychadellic rock band from San Francisco, Wooden Shjips took us on a trance inducing journey
with visuals and were musically amazing.
Matt Brady is friends with Ripley Johnson (also Mood Duo) and he kindly got
the band to sign my vinyl.
...and lots of fabulous new season deliveries!
