Outskirts 2011 took place this past Sunday. Hoards of people hit Northbridge to discovery what local artists were up to. Eight of us came together to showcase our latest pieces in the world of eco and fair trade designs to bring The Secret Garden to life. With eco peko's new organic range, Angel Ms. flowing silks, Pip Tangos hand felted beauties, Kijuuki Crane Art, hand painted pieces by Natalie Houston, hand screened organic tea towels by Fatty DeMonsey, skincare by Desert Shadow and my upcycled jewellery it was an ecclectic mix. The lovely Cindy Wieringa styled the shop bringing outdoor plants and furniture in to create a unique environment. It was one of those events where people kindly donated their time and talents to make the day a success. Our children hit the green carpet to don eco pekos new range. My niece and friends, their hair a nest of eggs created by Keiron from Blossom Hair, wore my latest pieces - to name just a few. I am just sad to see it end. I wish I had taken more photos on the day. Here are a few from my collection and a few borrowed.

Thank you to everyone who came down to Northbridege on Sunday and a BIG thank you to the Secret Garden gals for a great experience.
If you missed out on last weekend and you want to support the WA designer community, Perth Upmarket will be held this Sunday October 2nd at the University of Western Australia. Myself, eco peko and Kijuuki Crane Art will be there.
