I’ve just returned from two weeks working in Bali. Having grown up in Perth its one of our neighbours and I’ve been so many times that it feels like a second home. I spent my days working with artisans, sourcing the most unique hand embossed leathers in creamy shades of mauve, nude and tan and working closely with my silversmiths, leather workers, and amazing staff who are all such an inspiration to me. I love listening to their advice and stories. They have made such a huge contribution to where my label is at today.
I thought it would be nice to share a little bit of my experience with you.
Just found the work of CONFETTISYSTEM… so totally cute and crafty.
CONFETTISYSTEM art directs and creates installations and sets for the fashion and music industry. They’ve worked with the likes of United Bamboo, Opening Ceremony, the American Ballet Theatre and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. They have been exhibited in art galleries and museums in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, and Holland and have been featured in the NY Times, New York Magazine and V Magazine, among others.
Leading up to that time of year that brings families together, I am back in Perth in my old childhood home. The allure of sitting on the couch and flicking through old photo albums never fails to capture me. I love the yellowing pages, the rounded edges, the way they fall out of their plastic sleeves as I turn the pages. Memories, moments and glimpses from the past.
I made this little photo collage from my mother’s pics from the 70′s. Her effortless beauty captures the essense of the Carly Paiker brand.
