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 the 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 but has become a way of sharing them.
A selection of the Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe is now available as beautiful cards 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!
