Life In Style Fair

Have just finished the fair at Fox....a mammoth event full of mini businesses hawking their wares.  People go crazy for 4 days purchasing everything from bamboo watches, porcelain, textiles, furniture, jewels, scratchie scraps and anything french.  Some of the stalls I found inspirational were Pony Rider, Walter G, Tmod and Samantha Robinson.

My 4 metre wall of vintage scraps took me forever to make and the forklift men pulled it down in 2 seconds hurling it in the bin never to be found again.

Met 2 gorgeous girls from Sydney who have just created their first collection from India.  They spent 5 months living with an Indian family out in industrial Jaipur experimenting with natural dyes and old turbans.  The result is a triumph and the beginning of Walter G.  Hopefully they can soon move out of home and become mini textile moghuls.  I really loved their turban lampshades with antique bases

Was bowled over by Pony Rider's  heavenly products.  So stylishly presented, adored their flouro numbers, x range and their fab new Aztec throws and cushions, all exquisite. 

A very eccentric exhibit was TMOD.  The girls were dressed as girl guides and had created a wonderous tent with cut outs to pose behind. Their products inspired from victorian scraps, pre world war 2 patterns and 1950's images are so great....wrapping paper,scratchies, totes and cards.

I always love Sammy Robinson's ceramics.  Beautifully displayed, this time she had some lovely butter dishes, jugs and vases to add to her endless collection.
