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

Kenzo

24 Sep 2012

For Textile, Fashion and book lovers alike – this stunning book is for you – I’m sure you have discovered it already – but I wanted to make special mention of this book (which is all about global Fashion/Textile label Kenzo) because Bradley Quinn is one of the contributing authors. Bradley Quinn is God of Fashion Journalism as far as I’m concerned – especially since he decided to include me in his next two books – “Fashion Futures” and “Textile Designers at the cutting edge 2” – what a man!Kenzo_Book

Textile Designers at the Cutting Edge

08 Sep 2012

This wonderful book has been on my bookshelf for a long time; I have followed the books of Bradley Quinn for obvious reasons – he has written titles such as “Chinese Style””, “Design Futures”, “Textile Futures”, “The Boot” “Mid-Century Modern” – and many others including a contribution within the amazing “Kenzo” book mentioned before. So…can you imagine…..my EXCITEMENT!!!…..when Bradley asked to include ME (yes Ashe!) in his next book “Textile Designers at the Cutting Edge “? I’m faint with excitement….more details to come!T1

Gene Sherman Fremantle Arts Centre talks

08 Aug 2012

The Fremantle Arts Centre Fashion Talks this year were a little different to normal…and very interesting for me. The talks were centred around collectors and curators of fashion and last night I attended Dr. Gene Sherman’s discussion on her work as a gallery operator and collector of Japanese Fashion (Issey Miyake etc.) Her admiration for Japanese culture and contemporary fashion was evident and her intuitive approach to a sculptured fashion figure was intriguing. I could go on and on as I took pages of notes, but the key thing I took from her talk was “make order from the intuitive response”…Wonderful.Sherman-420x0
