Shelley manages to look demure in her softly draped monochromatic Amethystine Python pure silk scarf.
But Trudi's mood is more provocative and energetic, to match her vibrantly coloured Night Falls scarf, tied in pirate fashion.
Printed on very fine, pure silk chiffon, these scarves are light and floaty, subdued colours echoing that of distant Australian landscape. Roughly textured tree bark and slithering, giant pythons complement vibrant impressions of the brilliant ocean or remote outback at sunrise.
Each scarf is approximately 180cms x 70cms, with beautifully hand rolled hems. Please click on each image, above, to see our gorgeous models in action and for ideas on how to wear the scarves - or for a quick and easy, inexpensive purchase.
Beautiful, talented and enthusiastic, friends Trudi, Catherine, Shelley, Allana, Beth and Virginia kindly agreed to be fashion-models-for-a-day in order to help me to showcase a new range of silk chiffon scarves. How lucky was I!
Not only did they give of their time and modelling skills but they also took many of the photographs here - many thanks to them all, and especially to Catherine, for such fabulous results!
Held in the new garden restaurant at Limberlost Nursery in Stratford, Cairns, North Queensland, the photo-shoot was great fun, culminating in a pleasant lunch at 'Vines', the nursery's excellent restaurant.
Perhaps you would like to join us next time? I know, I know, certain logistics might prevent that! In spirit perhaps?
Patterns in Nature are everywhere - whether you are walking in the bush, strolling on the beach, enjoying your garden or watching a beautiful sunrise or sunset.
Patterns develop through repetition of a line, shape, tone or colour, and Mother Nature certainly excels at doing this in a way that is inspirational.
This series of pure silk chiffon scarves pays tribute to these rhythms in a way that I hope you will find fun to wear as well as fashionable.
There are ten scarves, all oblong and all making observations about Australian Nature, resulting in designs that are more abstract than representational.
Do you have a plain outfit with which these scarves would look perfect? Toning or contrasting both work well, as I'm sure you know.
Team with favourites to create your individual fashion style. Having fun?
