It's one week before the football is over for another year.

 I suppose it's routine for bloggers and mothers and milliners to say "How time flies"... and yes I know we all get the same number of hours in a day. So I suppose I should stop marvelling at that inevitability and discuss some more interesting matters. We are making some new hats and I want to tell you about them. 
Here are some of the squggly hats that I am enjoying this year, these 3 are red or contain red. I love the way red is so sharp and eye catching. Most people can wear red and look great.

Millinery Association of Australia Pop up shop at Melbourne Central until Melbourne Cup




 The Millinery Association of Australia has opened a pop up shop on Level 2 in Melbourne Central shopping centre in the lead up to Melbourne Cup. 

As a member of the MAA I invite you to come and have a look and find a gem to wear to any fine occasion as the Melbourne Cup is coming up very soon. This opportunity wont last long so hurry in!

Clients are now sending me their photos to enter the draw for a $500 hat.

Here is a shot of Lara Reynolds wearing a red ruffled disc at Flemington in 2012 .   I have moLara chose this piece to go with a red dress & as you can see she teams it very successfully with this subtle grey to very good effect.  I just love the chunky jewellery.

2011 launch pics

   The spring launch this year was delayed this year due to some family matters and nearly didn't happen at all. I am really glad we went ahead and showed our collection to a gathering of some of our favourite clients and friends of the business. The evening was a great success and I was very happy to share some hospitality, some hats and the company of some very good friends.

Handmade in Melbourne

Handmade in Melbourne is a great little guide to 200 of Melbourne's makers in a wide range of media. There are too many categories to list here, of course the one I like the best is Millinery & I am delighted to tell you that I am included. If you are interested in accessing items that are well designed, made by hand & produced in limited quantities or one off then I can recommend this book. I have copies for sale in the studio for the recommended price of $29.95. The Nicholas Building open studios 2009 will be Thursday 27th August and Friday 28th August.
