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 [...]

Hanging plant holders

Several years ago, Milly Sleeping participated in the Sustainable Living Festival, and devised a simple clothes hanger recycling program. Part of this was to imagine alternative uses for clothes hangers. Our project collaborator, artist Gian Manik, came up with the best idea, which was to make unique hanging pot holders from our excess wire hanger stash. [...]

ASTRA by Vikki Kassioras

One of the first exhibitions shown at Milly Sleeping, in March 2006, involved jeweller Vikki Kassioras ... so it's a great pleasure to host a tiny but very special display of work created by VK at this curly end of 2016. Titled ASTRA, the display comprises unique pendants, made from sterling silver and pink bronze. The [...]

Post Sole Studio for Penny Sage

The first time I was in touch with Myra Spencer from Post Sole Studio about the arrival of the Penny Sage shoes, she gave me a provisional time and then warned that boxing up the shoes might take she and her PSS partner, Breeze Powell, longer than they estimate. From start to finish, shoe-making is a slow and demanding, hands-on process, [...]
