The evolving About page.
August 2015. Kelsie Janne Faerie and Inert G have just released the Tri Frac Portal range. It's awesome....oh wait I'm trying not to diminish the word awesome with overuse....but there really is no other word :)
The above photos is still my studio but those cute little machines have made way for big heavy duty industrials. Overseas manufacture wasn't as fun as we thought so now it's all done right here in Australia! I've pulled in a few more Melbourne based creative minds into the fold. James at Voyager Screen Printing is doing great work with hand printing the amazing artwork that InertG turns out. Linh Thai at The Designers Assistant is doing excellent work constructing some of our best selling garments - every stitch laid down with care.
I'm still about colour! I'm still about psychedelic realities. I'm about ethical, sustainable garment production. I'm about clothes, that fit, that last, that are super comfy and packed with features. I'm about hoodie pockets that actually fit your hand. I'm about supporting small businesses and artists. I'm about to pack up my studio, move to Tasmania, buy some land, build a house and nurture myself, my family and the patch of earth we'll be standing on....oh yeah, so no more custom orders for awhile :) I'm pretty sure next chapter will be about building a home among the gum trees and a studio that runs off solar and finding an amazing sewer to help me kick off in a new direction. Follow me there's so much more!
PS that photo is actually hilarious if you could see the chaos that is my studio at this particular juncture where I am both simultaneously releasing a new line of clothes AND packing up to move interstate.
