I am a Tasmanian fashion designer and my studio looks out onto a slightly unkempt but enchanting garden. I often take a moment out from my work by stepping outside  – to pause for thought, feel the warmth of the sun or pick a few flowers and it was in one of those moments that I created the first garden fairy’s dress.

Since then my Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe has turned into a collection that continues to grow as does the enjoyment I get from creating them.

Part of that enjoyment comes from their ephemeral nature and the immediacy of being able to transform a design idea into reality in contrast to the hours to turn fabric into the same idea.

Photographing the designs was initially a way of documenting the moment that has turned into a range of cards available from my Petal & Pins store.

I invite you to subscribe to this blog to see what new additions appear in the fairy’s wardrobe and other creative musings from my studio and garden. Enjoy!
