Behind the Scenes: Melbourne Buying Trip.
Posted on 05 August 2014
Last week I was lucky enough to be granted leave from Motherhood and set off to Melbourne for three inspiring days, attending the Spring / Summer Trade Fairs.
My wonderful husband kept the home fires burning (literally, as it has been so cold) and looked after our three children while I was away, and boy did he do a fantastic job!
Without going into too much detail here are my top three from the fair that I am so excited to be bringing to Olive & Clover over the next few months!
Firstly, for those of you who loved the 'Flower Bomb' pants, earlier in the year, you will die over the next offerings from creative sisters Phoebe & Delia Langdon who are the creative duo behind luxe label 'Langdon'. There digital print silks are what they are best at, with brilliant colours and incredible design, their latest offering is sensational.
(If you are interested in the Quattro Blazer (above) and missed out email me firstname.lastname@example.org)
One of the most vibrant stalls at the fair belonged to Greenhouse Interiors, owned by super stylist Julia Green. My favourite fashion collection Mosk Projects is run out of Greenhouse Interiors and is represented by Jane Eddie. (that's her above looking so glamorous) While the kimonos were the star from Mosk Projects last collection, the blazer and the feather print design are the stars of the new Spring Summer collection. Arriving in October, I am ultra excited about these.
The trick of attending the Trade Fair is to sift through and find the best of the best,
and while there were numerous amounts of stalls offering summer weight cotton scarves, it was these ones from Whizzer & Whyte that took the prize for me. Also under the Greenhouse Interiors label, Whizzer & Whyte is high in quality and high in the fun factor, I just know you will love these ones too.
Oh yes, and the funky jewellery displayed on the table, we love that too, and you will find a curated collection arriving at Olive & Clover very soon!
All the colours of the rainbow at the Elms & King stand, with new colours for a new season in the Bowery Wallets.
Even though the majority of my time was spent indoors, the weather in Melbourne didn't fail to live up to expectations either!
So many more great stalls, the trip away was worth it, and so many amazing things are coming to Olive & Clover over the next few months, this is just a start.
I hope you enjoyed this little insight!
