Just in time for this hot and humid weather, the latest from one of our favourite Sydney designer labels. Cotton prints in voile and poplin , crepe de chine and crinkle georgette silk in prints and plain , and swimsuit nylon/lycra in their exclusive prints and designs.
Great for those sundresses we love to wear....before winter stocks start to hit the floor!!!!
Got to work today and guess what was delivered?........... our latest Japanese fabrics! I have been looking at small samples for so long, it is so nice to see them finally in the full piece. And they are divine!
Adrian is now busy preparing them , to be sent to all the stores. They will be in Tessuti next week. This is just a small selection....of a stunning lot of cottons, voile, linen/cotton ,etc.
I have discovered another wonderful blog The Satorialist . It proves what I have always thought. The best fashion is what you see stylish people wearing on the streets and not what is sold in the stores. There are some great looks you can take some inspiration from. Check it out
Sorry there haven't been any posts lately. Lately, I have just spent 4 fantastic days in my other favourite city , Melbourne with Gabby and Claudia to catch up with family. If you are ever in Melbourne, check out: For coffee (which I can't live without) St Ali in South Melbourne here is their blog Mr Tulk Cafe at the State Library of Victoria...I still can't stop thinking of the bresaola with cabbage,pea and parmesan salad....mmmmm We had a great dinner at Cookie in Swanson St, Melb. Shopping in Melbourne...Meet Me At Mikes she has a gorgeous new store in Brunswick St Fitzroy where we found the best vintage sailors dress for Claudia.Read about the store in their blog Zakkaya where I bought a gift for a friends baby. Douglas and Hope to drool over their japanese fabric quilts.
Today I took my daughters to see the movie 27 Dresses with Katherine Heigl. It's school holidays and the girls wanted to go to the movies with me and so we decided on this chick flick.
I love Katherine Heigl on Greys Anatomy and the girls love James Marsden ,since seeing him in Hairspray.... and ,I don't think he's too bad either!!!! It was a light hearted , predictable romantic comedy ,but, I have to say the best bit was seeing a scene where the character played by Judy Greer was wearing a Dolce and Gabbana dress in the satin stretch black/red floral ,we are currently stocking this season, bought on our last buying trip in Italy.
Here are a couple of pics of garments made out of this stunning fabric.
A while ago a lovely friendship was struck at our Chatswood store between Sue ,who has been working with us for some years and Sue who travels from Noosa to visit us in Sydney ,on her fabric hunting shopping sprees.
Not only do they share the same name,and could easily be mistaken for sisters but have the exact taste in fabrics. Seen here on a night out (and for a bit of a laugh) they both decided to show off their recently made up stunning Italian silk/elastane skirts Vogue2607 skirt teamed back with a lovely silk mesh blouse from Jigsaw that they both liked and purchased.
As you can see from the photo , they are gorgeous friends and lots of fun to be around.
