cupcakes & daisies

Even with spring coming along with an uncertain streak,
There are still moments in the day,
that strike us,
The beautiful colours that surround us
even with a simple thing like our drinking water
scented with strawberries & mint,
filling memoirs with an array of colourful flowers
filling our empty stomach with cream topping cupcakes.
We are all about colour this week & days to come.
Its time to get out of our heavy attire
slowly dress ourselves for blue skies.
We cant wait to express at Precinct
this Saturday,
It's all about that
"OMG , She's Fashion Road Kill"

We found our cinderella for the hot chunky DOLCE & GABANNA pumps!
Finally, someone who is a perfect match
she found herself the right bag to go with it.
It's amazing what a little lift from heels can do,
so ladies strap on those killer heels
march your way through
melbourne looking stunning!

Take it to the streets

Every now & then, we need to take
a breather.
Every now & then, we need something
to inspire us.
I think in every little corner of Melbourne,
You will find a special piece
that will tell you a story,

Today , we are inspired by street art,
It's amazing what talent we can
all achieve if we just tap into it.

Make over

Without music life would be a mistake. ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Beautiful customers came along our way this weekend,
I had a good time meeting new faces
chatting about the horrible weather that
took over Melbourne.
Despite that, The Grand Final took place
on Sunday.
So, we opened our doors earlier
to receive our breakfast crowd.
We also had a pleasure of handing over
the weeks window display
to our beautiful customer
who looks great
in Blue.
I think its great that colours
are reappearing.
ps: we also painted our letters GOLD
It's also time for a change for us too!!

Matea-New Designer

Designers can be inspired by many different things. Usually it is something they have seen. Maybe in the studio or at the book store or while waiting for a bus or sitting in a dentist's office. Inspiration can also come from a song or a situation or a great lunch. Whatever it is and wherever it comes from, it isn't inspiration until it triggers some kind of response and forces you to the drawing board. I have been surrounded by fashion victims basically all my life. My grandmother was a fashion designer/tailor. This is where my early ideas on fashion have derived from. When I began designing my first line of women’s clothing my inspirations had mainly come from many classy, sassy and classic clothing styles which have been around for decades. The idea for each season is to produce a collection of timeless clothing with classic cuts which will last a life time. When thinking about the colors and fabrics I should use, I decided to go with mainly Viscose / Elastane blends, Polyester / Viscose blends, silks and cotton Elastane blends. As these fabrics are flattering to the female body & most importantly comfortable. A designer should always think about the person who will use what they create. Although creating designs can be exciting and rewarding, it takes dedication and a great deal of hard work, especially when trying to break through such a competitive industry. However, when you see that first dress finished and more importantly see someone you don't even know wearing it around, all the effort is more than worth it. This is one of the best parts of being a designer. I am determined to be different from the norm. Designing and modeling my own clothes, I plan to bring a new era of fashion to the streets of Melbourne.

We are proud & delighted to have this lovely
designer among our racks.

be the first to purchase her
