Share: Season’s Greetings from me, my 1980s vintage Jimmy Pike** shirt, and the very blue and *gorgeous* Western Australia!

** I’m a keen collector of Jimmy Pike, a significant Australian artist from Walmatjarri, WA. His work is often featured as part of the 1980s Oz label, ‘Desert Designs‘. Having found this amazing shirt this year, I felt it only right to have its first showing back in WA (where we also are for some of our family holidays)…

Share: Somehow, in the moving house process, I’ve misplaced my The Social Studio silk fabric necklace… Of course, I only worked this out this morning as I ran crazily around trying to locate it, as I had a morning meeting with Rupal from &Able first up (a very interesting social venture by the way, take a look). No luck on locating the said necklace, so instead I went with The Social Studio silk dyed scarf in my hair, and wore instead this *magnificent* Jimmy Pike for Oroton vintage silk scarf. Jimmy Pike is a genius. Jenny Kee is a genius. Oh how I love Australian fashion!

Meeting Rupal was lovely, and I have more meetings this afternoon. Slowly, slowly, I work to get the word out about the opportunity of The Social Studio coming to Sydney out there. Let’s hope this transforms into financial support for our social enterprise venture too… of course, I want The Social Studio to one day be as loved as our 1980s Australian fashion icons of Jimmy Pike, Jenny Kee, Linda Jackson, and Ken Done… knowing as well, that The Social Studio is *doing good in a fashion*
