Handmade in Melbourne

Looking forward to the launch of the most recent edition of the Hand Made in Melbourne book by Geoff Slattery Publishing Pty Ltd. The last 'Hand Made in Melbourne' was a sensation and so greatly looking forward to the new publication. I and many other people who hand make in Melbourne are included, have not seen the new addition but am looking forward to the launch in August. Hope to have the book available to buy in my online store as soon as possible. Above are some photo's from my body of work.

Kylie Minogue in Australian Vogue

Yep that's a girl called Kylie Minogue in her (and my) early career. I have added a more recent photo of her these days as you can see she has changed a bit ! as seen in Australian Vogue.
Loved the miniature little red silk top hat that I made for her.

Hat Trims

Had almost forgotten about this little hat trim job I did in January this year - love the stripe petersham on these shapes I think it worked well. I curved all the ribbon and made the bows on mass so not too difficult but took a while to finish all 25 or so of them.

Winter Bride Marabou Muff in Ivory

We have just started making these Marabou Muff's to match our Marabou stoles, at the moment just made to order $185.00, call us in Melbourne to order +61 3 9525 2456, so nice (and warm) for a winter bride.

Making Blue Fine Straw Hat

Here I am making an electric blue hat for the shop and the resulting trim - my designs more than often evolve and I had little idea at the start that this hat would have the pink flowers dripping off the front as illustrated by the last photo. I rather like the effect and think this hat has maximum impact and wow factor without being too over the top. What do you think ?
