Fendi A/W 2011

God damn, time is really flying along at the moment, it dawned on me today that the appointment I’d made to meet someone “later in the month” is um, this thursday, time is slipping away!

We changed the locks today on the new studio, so we’re super secure and able to start lugging in the more precious items and tools.
We have knocked a hole in the wall, we have a defined kitchen space now and Dani shopped like a madman to get us stocked up with cutlery and condiments… mmm, studio lunch breaks. I’m also on the hunt for a good coffee machine so that I can shave a little off my yearly latte budget whilst also being able to offer a cup to anyone who pops in for a visit.

Tomorrow we’ll be back in there building jeweller’s benches and starting to fill the shelves. It’s all taking shape (slowly).

Last week saw us attend the Design Made Trade show 2 days in a row and I finally got to have a proper chat to Emma Greenwood! After a good year or so of email banter, we finally got to ramble on in person (although I must admit I was doing all the rambling, so many questions to ask, so little time!). The rest of the show was a blast, and as has been the talk of a few blogs and publications around town the craft crew were there in full force showing that daggy craft is dead and handmade is the new… something. 3 cheers for Milly and the Craft Vic team for putting on a helluva display.

Later this week I get to meet with some more people to discuss collaborations – pretty excited about it, and will be sure to let you all know what comes of it asap.

But today I’ll leave you with these KILLER images from the new Fendi Campaign. Great colours, awesome photography / styling and a perfect colour palette. This is a pretty good representation of  the vibe we want to create for the Dead+Buried workshop… warm, arty, woody, with little bursts of colour, and of course hot shoes and even hotter ladies.
