New Designs: Colour!
December 3, 2011 § 19 Comments
Wow, summer is well and truly upon us in Melbourne. As some of you might know; me and warm weather do not get along, I usually spend most of my summer “hibernating” in a way to avoid the heat and the sun, only venturing outside to forage for food… I MEAN FABRIC, forage for fabric.(I’m saying all of this in my head in David Attenborough’s voice, as you can tell by my slip of ‘forage’ I just finished watching Life of Mammals and am subconsciously commentating everything in his voice). Up until quite recently my wardrobe was dominated by black, grey and the odd splash of red but my recent fabric haul has seen a re-emergence of colour which has not been there since I was a toddler.
