Presenting the Christmas Video shoot & online shop

On October 18th, 2010 by .

We’ve finished the filming of the Christmas viral!!  It was a full on shoot with an extremely tight schedule but the client was very happy which is all we can wish for.  I wrote the script for the video and did all the syling but I was also the prestenter (!!)  A big thank you to Sophie Bell who was on work experience with me that day, I hope you have recovered and haven’t been put of styling!  They are working on the edit this week and we should have the first drafts through soon.  Below are some pics from the day.

Other projects on the go are styling and planning an exhibition space, styling a Spring/Summer 2011 press show and planning the launch of our online shop…soooo excited about this!

The unique and beautiful designs of Patricia Fernandes

On October 18th, 2010 by .

It appears ‘Perth Upmarket’ is quickly becoming known as the place to be for new local designers and craft lovers alike, to celebrate their passions for all things arty. I was so encouraged and excited by my visit to the most recent markets, with the discovery of local ceramic artist Patricia Fernandes.
Her beautiful range of printed brooches, earrings, pendants and scarf holders are created by layering traditional Indian patterns onto white porcelain, in a range of sizes and bright colours. Each of these irresistible pieces are unique, and are a wonderfully ornate addition to any bag or outfit.

Speaking with Patricia and learning about how she creates her pieces, I have come to appreciate the lengthy and involved process involved and especially her awareness of her design process and its’ impact on the environment.
