We have had our heads down in the studio but looking forward with excitement to show you all our spring collection being launched this Thursday evening at the studio. Please let us know if you wish to attend. A huge shoutout to Stephen Nothling – Brisbane artist whose amazing artworks have inspired our seasons collection – ” Fractured Roses” . Creating a collection is such a fabulous process. It is difficult to decide which part is more enjoyable- the spark of an idea – dreaming, sketching, searching for suitable materials to create the essence of the idea, the making, or seeing the pieces come together. We have used a variety of materials, textures, and techniques to create the collection. We hope you will love it.

We are also excited to have some of Stephens gorgeous artworks for sale also – and are very excited to be able to collaborate on this exciting venture.

Hats Off to Brisbane

The bi-annual “Hats off to Brisbane” millinery convention  was a runaway success again. The week was full of events for milliners. Lots of workshops, suppliers and activities to keep us all amused and busy. Super organisers Allison Clark and Brenda Treasure have been planning the multiple events for 2 years.

Some highlights were  Cocktail Party, Masquerade Ball, teaching my flower workshops, and meeting lots of wonderful, talented hat- lovers, and tutors.

The biggest challenge- was the tutor challenge. We are given a “mystery” hat box with some millinery materials,  a  hat block and   $50 to spend with the various millinery traders at the show. We are challenged to create a headpiece in 3 hours- which was then auctioned to raise funds for the charity Act for Kids.

Now its back to work, completing orders in the Sydney winter.

It is Christmas in July in Rozelle- This week there is 50% off all Red and Green hats, and Jewellery in the store.

See you soon.
