Rugging up

It feels a bit like the never ending winter at the moment - I can't believe Spring is less than 4 weeks away and yet it still feels like we're right in the depths of the cold season.  It's just as well there are some beautiful clothes and accessories around to keep you feeling warm.
It's sale time again for my friend Helen Webster - the Raffal Fine Australian Merino Wool Big Winter Sale of shawls, stoles, scarves and jewellery will be held from 3 - 5 pm this Saturday 8th August at the Ivanhoe Uniting Church at 19 Seddon Street in Ivanhoe.  You can pick up some unique pieces using cash, credit card or cheque with samples, one off items plus normal excess stock all on offer.  The church is located near Ivanhoe railway station with car parking available at the rear.  Besides selling her beautiful wares, Helen also takes overseas shopping tours - I met Helen many years ago when I was working in fashion PR and Helen was working for what is now The Woolmark Company.  She's been a fan of Australian wool for a long time!  Helen's lovely niece is modelling a couple of Helen's scarves above and below.
Independent Australian fashion brand Obus has also opened a new store in Brunswick East at 136 Lygon Street complementing its three other existing stores in Northcote, Fitzroy and the CBD.  They're well known for their quirky designs and short-runs of clothing ranges which are all made here in Australia.
