I am nothing short of SUPER excited to announce that the super talented Tessa Blazey and I will be launching the culmination of our 7 year collaboration – Future Artefacts – in a show co-curated by Karen Woodbury and Craft Victoria which also marks the christening of Craft’s new exhibition space, in the basement below Supernormal, (180 Flinders Lane, Melbourne) on Thursday Oct 12, 6-8pm. The show will also unveil our new collaborations with photographer Jane Burton, sculptor Kate Rohde and composer Byron Meyer. Love to see you all there! XXX Show runs until Nov 18.

It’s true. Some days are better then others. And having the privilege of dressing an inspiring human like Kirsha Kaechele during her wedding celebration at MONA was not bad, as far as days go. So the reason Kirsha looks like a sci-fi goddess is primarily because she’s kinda just an out-of-this-world-awesome-human, but also because she’s wearing an ALEXI FREEMAN Foil & Mesh Onesie underneath an artisanal Interstellar Gown I made in collab with Tessa Blazey.

And then, just incase Kirsha wasn’t exuding enough WOW factor already, she was wheeled out on a piano and stunned her nearest and dearest by belting out an operetta down by the bar on the basement level of MONA…

Amongst other things, Kirsha also wore this little Neo Lace Capelet number at her nuptial cocktail party, also at MONA, also a collab with Tessa Blazey.
Party snap by yours truly. AF
