Which colour?

This month's Instagram theme was COLOUR ... because the colours of garments destined for the shop this Autumn (and any season) play on the mind ... Even more than I anticipate the new styles, I anticipate the changing of colours, and can hardly wait to see certain colours in person. It is always pleasing and puzzling [...]

National Designer Award finalist, Lois Hazel ...

Lois Hazel was recently announced as one of the finalists in the prestigious VAMFF National Designer Award for her eponymous womenswear label. I think it fitting recognition and encouragement for Lois, who is about to release her gorgeous A/W 17 range ... and pounced upon the moment to 'take stock' with her via a mini interview. Because this month's Insta [...]

Romance was beaded ...

I've said this in various ways before ... One of the reasons that the Romance Was Born collections are exciting, time after time, is the way that Anna and Luke work a theme. There's almost always a nuclear concept, from which ideas seem to shoot out on in various directions, and then grow and grow and build and build to [...]

Quick interview with Gracia Haby of Gracia & Louise

Happy New Year everybody. Our final interview for the holiday period evolved into a 'true or false' quiz for Melbourne-based artists Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison, AKA Gracia & Louise. Together and independently (but most often together, and most often with a four-legged friend or two), G + L are very prolific makers, doers, dreamers [...]

Quick interview with Birgitta Helmersson and Elizabeth Yong

The studio that I visited the most this year (without much doubt) is that of Birgitta Helmersson ... This is not particularly surprising given that two of Milly Sleeping's labels have operated from her space - but the many, many quick viewings and pick-ups of fresh stock does also accurately tell of the popularity of these labels.... Most often, I would [...]

Quick interview with Suzan Dlouhy

One rainy morning recently, I made my way to the home-based studio of Suzan Dlouhy. Suzan's label, SZN, was introduced to Milly Sleeping in March or April of this year, and was a quiet success from the start. Not many SZN garments have made it into our online shop (although I've added a handful today), as we've tended to get in [...]

Quick interview with Vikki Kassioras

This month, we'll be posting short and sweet interviews with four 'stars' of Milly Sleeping. We could have picked any of the brilliant designers with whom we work but an obvious first choice, at least, was Vikki Kassioras. In a very short space of time, VK conceived and created a gorgeous suite of pendants for [...]
