STANDING UP ON MY OWN TWO FEET
I underestimated how long it would take to pack up 10 years of collected fabric and trims, along with all of the other machinery and equipment necessary for the manufacture of clothing.
I hope to get back into production this week as I am feeling renewed, refreshed and inspired by the new season.
I am really happy with what I have achieved in the new space. It will be a work in progress for the next few months (years?). I feel I have created the atmosphere I was alluding to -a salon style store, with a roomy private fitting room , a little bit of quirk and fully focused customer service.
I have selected some of my favourite local makers to stock in the store including -
OKOK tights and legwear
Shonah wooden jewellery
Rant sustainable fashion made from bamboo and selected hard wearing fabrics. Great basics and a few directional pieces, carefully created to go the distance.
Temps Perdu interesting pieces for day wear or occasion. Each piece has a twist, drape or pleat.
The Gently Unfurling Sneak - digitally printed silk tops, all original artwork
Resinate - Resin jewellery made locally in Brunswick using beautiful Japanese inspired papers amongst hundreds of designs.
Little Love scented soy candles, which come in lovely faceted glass jars.
Shabana handmade silver jewellery, enamelled, oxidised and cute kitties and sausage dogs in this extensive range
Missy Mao Mao bags, these satchels are made to last, there is always something new in this range.
Other labels include Able & Game cards and tea towels, Ikandi jewellery and lots more on order for Summer.
We are in the process of listing as much as possible on the new online store:
