Stolen Last Night



If, during your rides around Melbourne, anybody chances upon my rubber tree with purple(ish) leaves planted in a tall cream coloured rectangular pot please let me know. Some scumbag stole it from my front doorstep last night. Seems to be the thing to do in Carlton, a few months ago someone uprooted and took a plant from my front garden. Of course I reported it to the police with an accurate description for identification. I don't want to live behind bars but may be compelled to fit them to the front of our modest terrace house, for the garden's sake. Strangely one tends to feel violated. The picture is the front of my house, the rubber tree sits to the left of the front door, or rather it used to.

Exhibition: Cycle Craft




If anyone is interested my class of 2nd year fashion students are exhibiting their work at the Knog store in Chapel Street, South Yarra. Opening tomorrow night at 6.30, the work will be up till Thursday July 2, normal business hours.

The project was to explore the design possibilities in addressing the sartorial needs of the urban cyclist.

Next semester it's tailoring all round.

While you're online and doing the blogs check out the lovely things the Bike Snob NYC readers have got to say about my work. Here's my version of the silver foil saddle, christened The BSNYC Saddle.
