Sneak Peak Spring '12 Collection - Dream Catcher

This week we hosted an intimate event at our Westfield Sydney store. Guests were invited to preview our Spring '12 Collection, Dream Catcher and indulge in a glass of champagne and high tea prepared by the talented chefs at The Victoria Room Tea Salon.
Our Spring '12 Collection Dream Catcher captures the essence of a romantic, weaving whimsical aesthetic that presents like a careful curation of personal treasures. Here's a sneak peak of the collection, dropping in store and online mid July, plus some photographs from the event.

Fancy Fish Pie

When it's cold outside there's nothing I like doing more than cooking some delicious comfort food.  This fish pie recipe is a family favourite and is from my sister Fran's beautiful book Keepsakes.

There's Nothing Like Australia

I'm lucky enough to be a Friend of Australia for Tourism Australia and our clothes have been used in their new advert There's Nothing Like Australia, celebrating the diversity of experiences and adventures you can have in our beautiful country.  They have also launched an amazing new app for iphone’s, ipad’s and Tablet’s, called OzPlanner.  This app is the perfect tool for planning a trip - it helps you to narrow down the best location to visit based on what you look for in a holiday. As well as providing suggested itineraries and photographs of each location.  There are some amazing destinations that I can't wait to visit.

Check out the There's Nothing Like Australia video:

I'm desperate to stay at the El Questro Homestead  in the 
east Kimberley region of Western Australia.  Check out these pictures for inspiration.

Support Sydney Children's Hospital

I was approached recently to create a design for a baby singlet by Marquise to help support the Sydney Children’s Hospital. It was an opportunity I couldn't refuse, especially as I’ve been blessed with such a happy, healthy, bouncing baby Billy.

The baby singlets are available throughout June at our Sydney stores, our website and also at The good news is that 100 per cent of the proceeds will go directly towards helping the Hospital’s sick and injured children. It coincides with Gold Week Telethon, the Hospital’s major fundraising drive for the year – this year they are hoping to raise $2.3 million.

Childhood should be filled with magic and fantasy, which are the feelings we wanted to evoke in our design.
