I'm going on a small roadtrip up to Lorne for a couple of days. I've gotta find some of the Polaroid film I stashed away so I can click at the beach to my heart's content! Anyway about the fabric pics...

Earlier this year I was commissioned by Australian fashion designer Dhini to create patterns for her Spring 2007 collection 'Song of the Drowned'. I adored working on this project and learnt a lot in the process (this being my first attempt at pattern design).

Had someone told me months before that my first commission as a graphic designer would be so much fun I would've turned to them and said in my best valley girl accent 'OMG, like whatEVER.'

You can see the full collection here, and watch video of the show here.
