I’m excited to share the brand new bridal range from young NZ designer Kelsey Genna for a few reasons: #1 we have watched her work grow and mature from the early pieces I blogged when she was a teenager yet she still retains her signature style. #2 when I say “mature”…all the range below is designed by a 21 year old (!!) #3 Kelsey hasn’t just done 3 or 4 dresses, she has produced a full and large collection and I really think she is offering a style that is

Hollie Martin is back at it again with her second solo show hitting up the walls of China Heights Gallery in Surrey Hills, Sydney. Once again there is her trade mark geometry and amazing use of colour. I’d definitely skip down for a look when it opens this coming Friday 5th of October.  

The Southern Lakes region of NZ is not at all renown for it’s street art scene, something I can vouch for having lived down here for six years.

I am almost at the end of the first week of the ski season at Treble Cone -Murphys Law has struck me down with a mean cold/cough/temp/gross thing to coincide nicely with the busy time and my managers departure.
