As you know, I am a big fan of Maria's label 'avian'.
Maria had her second collection showing here in Sydney at the house to a select group of friends and followers.
This collection was for 'Super Vixens'. Edgier and more rock and roll than the first collection but no less attention to fine fabrics, craftsmanship and detail. Think Blondie, the Cure and the Clash - less trash. A saucy and playful collection for grownups: silk and scrumptious fabrics, enough animal print to unleash your inner cougar but well made and practical enough to wear anywhere (the skirts were reversible - crazy animal print one side, plain and coloured denim the other).
Also on show was a selection of Ms A'Marie DaisyJaw's latest prints which fitted the theme beautifully.
Watch these names - they will be going places.
You heard it here first.

I have put a sneak preview of works for sale on my website here. There will be a large number of unframed works (some brand new), and all at special prices for the show.
And for those of you who want an original Gabby Malpas for under $5 - I will be selling watercolour Christmas cards for $15, per set of 5. Each card is a one off and made along the theme of:
'The colours of a Sydney Summer'
Hope to see you there.

OK, so hot on the heels of the Mango Frooty Choiceland and Aussie destination bags are my selection of mobile phone pouches. All are made of two thicknesses of stiff fabric for protection and have old mother of pearl buttons fastened with an elastic loop. Some have old mother of pearl buttons, other have little plastic tikis as decoration.
Lately we've been having a bit of aussie/kiwi sports matches so in the spirit of things I have named the selection of pouches made from Vintage Mambo fabric (2nd from left and last on right), with tikis: 'The bros love breadstealers' bags.
They're $12 each and will be onsale at the Kirribilli Markets this Sunday, 9th Oct. Perfect Xmas presents and to send overseas in a little envelope for about $2.
