Botanique Fashion Parade

One of the annual events I like to participate in is "Botanique" at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mt. Coot-tha. This is quite fitting for me as my "Marguerite" print was inspired by photos I took at the gardens last summer.

The event invites local textile artists to create garments with a botanic theme to be paraded on the evening of Tuesday, 13th October at 6.30 pm in the lovely Japanese Gardens. Wine & Nibbles are provided, of course!

The garments, many one-of-a-kind, will be available for sale on the evening and over the following 5 days at the "Botanique Bazaar" held at the adjacent Richard Randall Studio. Tickets are $25 each, if paid before Oct. 5th or $30 after that date. For ticket sales, please ring Bettina on: 0405 402 340. All funds directly benefit the Botanic Gardens Trust Fund.

Other participants include the wonderful Beatrice Jackson, whose hand-woven scarves I blogged about here and local artists Candice Herne and Sophie Munns.

BTW... do you like the new look of my blog and website? I used the wonderful services of Lynda Briggs of Exquisite Expressions on high recommendation from Sandra of Pepperberry & Co. Thanks Sandra and thank you Lynda!

PS. I did lose some of my previous links in reformatting the blog so if you notice that yours is now missing, please let me know. Hope to see you at Botanique!
