Akira Isogawa in the Studio

18 Apr 2015

I have adored the work of Akira Isogawa for many many years. Today I had the honour of interviewing him just days after his Sydney @mbfashionweek show with his amazing creations surrounding us.  WOW!!!11050124_480192572135962_8203747480360203822_n - Copy

Original Florence Broadhurst Albums

17 Apr 2015

This is why I’m in Sydney! This is it! To see the original Florence Broadhurst wallpapers, including some of the rare or unreleased designs. There are still nearly 500 unreleased designs which is almost incomprehensible. The range and beauty of them is staggering. And very much in safe hands with David and Helen Lennie of Signature Prints. Carefully archiving, nurturing and protecting this collection and maintaining its excellence.11159963_479504788871407_7633973548952673730_n

Florence Broadhurst Original Silk Screens in action!

16 Apr 2015

Here I am printing a piece of “Japanese Floral” from the original silk screen of Florence Broadhurst from the 70s. Because of my love and research for the work of Florence, custodians @signatureprints, David and Helen Lennie allowed me to print and take home this precious piece of Australian design history. Normally only new screens are used to preserve the older archive, so I’m feeling very very lucky right now! In fact when I asked David if he usually allowed people to print from the original screens he said “No, never.  Not ever”.  I think Florence must have been there in spirit today urging him on to share this with me!11149569_479501938871692_2481565574181468551_n - Copy

Florence Broadhurst’s personal papers

16 Apr 2015

I’m in Sydney at the State Library of NewSouthWales. Today I finally got to go through the personal papers archive of Australian Designer Florence Broadhurst My spine was tingling as I read her old diaries and notebooks from the 1920s through to the 70s. Due to copyright I can’t show any photos of those, but there were boxes and boxes bulging with news clippings that I can publish here….Loving Life!11136617_479499118871974_8641665567295953617_n

Kelsey Ashe meets Jimmy Choo!

01 Apr 2015

The one and only Jimmy Choo.  The “Jimmy Choo Master Class” at Curtin University yesterday was pretty amazing.  Over the span of a day we were taught about making shoes and the making of the icon Jimmy Choo, illustrating shoes and marketing products.   I was sponsored to attend the event by Curtin University’s Fashion Department.  What a beautiful soul he is! We were able to workshop our own creations and he absolutely loved my Ashe clutch purses and the print designs I use on them.  Great Day!11147890_476798085808744_8633641097916446562_n
