Almost a week of radio silence from me to you, dear readers, but that’s just because we’ve been *working so hard* to get here: The Social Outfit Pilot Project!
We’re down at The Rocks, and we’re ready to say hello to you and your friends…
From this week until Saturday 11 May, we’ll be at Shop 2.03, 140 George Street, The Rocks (Tuesdays to Sundays, 10am-5pm). Of course, we’re not doing it all alone: we’re proudly supported by our sister organisation, The Social Studio; we’ve had *fantastic* funding from the City of Sydney Community Grants Program; and our spot is thanks to the The Rocks Pop-Up initiative.
Let’s take a little tour of our space, shall we? …
We’re also running creative workshops with people from refugee backgrounds. This week is hat-making with Catherine Kelly of Embellish Atelier, and thanks to donations from Hatters Millinery Supplies. From scratch, people have been making these millenary pieces: look at the results in just a few dedicated hours!
With things being so busy, if you want to check out what’s happening on a more regular basis, good spots for information are:
- @JGRuddock (me!) on Twitter
- @TheSocialOutfit (us!) on Twitter
- ShowTellShare on Facebook
- The Social Outfit on Facebook
In the meantime, hoping to see you at the shop (if you’re in Sydney); hoping you enjoy what we’re trying to do (if you’re further afield), and thanks as always, for showing your support as The Social Outfit (NEW WEBSITE!) progresses each day. xo xo
And here’s me – looking exhausted, really – but living life to my fullest…
I’m too tired to tell you about the outfits in any great detail… but rest assured, naturally I’m wearing The Social Studio (leggings in picture one, *super* cape in picture two…) xo
