Time for Tea

What better way to spend the upcoming long weekend than to invite some girlfriends over for high tea and a good old gossip. Here are some recipes to inspire you from my book, Food Fashion Friends and my sister Fran's Book, Keepsakes.

Summer '12 Collection - Navajo Bride

Our new summer collection started dropping in stores this week. This season I’ve looked at the beauty and free spirit of the Native American and New Mexican cultures, and the result is Navajo Bride. I tried to channel these thoughts into my vision of a teenage bride and her journey at the turn of the (previous) century.

One of the features of the collection is the Mosaic print, which draws on native floral motifs and desert waterholes. You’ll find this on everything from blouses and trousers to jumpsuits.

A number of pieces in this collection have a soft, romantic quality, with sheer panels, punched patterns and light-as-air fabrics. Linen jackets are a really relaxed piece for summer, and when the weather gets really scorching, a silk maxi dress will be an easy go-to.

Of course, my lingerie pieces are in there, too, with silk-and-lace camisoles and matching shorts a particular favourite.

I hope you enjoy the collection – I’m really proud of it and can’t wait to wear it myself.

Vogue Fashion's Night Out was last night and the city was buzzing.  We were excited to launch our summer collection Navajo Bride at our Westfield store and were even happier at how well received it was.  Three of our beautiful Fleur Wood girls were acting as live mannequins for the night and drew quite the crowd.  They were very reminiscent of Charlie's Angels with their bronzed skin and glossy curled hair (courtesy of my good friend Brad Ngata and his wonderful team).

Fleur's Pick Of The Week

The Lux dress, as its name suggests, is pure luxury.  Made from French lace and silk, it is actually based on a dress that I designed and wore to the races in Melbourne last year. I received so many compliments that I decided that we had to put it in the collection this season.  It's a fantastic occasion dress that will be perfect for a Spring Wedding or a day at the races.
