The Other Skirt

This blog entry is dedicated to all the lovely people who emailed me when Premier Anna Bligh was seen wearing my Brisbane Skirt design recently. The occasion was the opening of the new Kurilpa Bridge. How appropriate for our state Premier to wear a (Story) Bridge skirt to open a bridge!









Not only is the new pedestrian bridge a stunning design but it also changes colour – on State of Origin nights it will be maroon, on Breast Cancer Awareness nights it will be pink and on St. Patrick's day it will be green. The photos are courtesy of the Premier's journal.










Limited stock of the Brisbane Skirt will be available at the Thea & Sami stall at the next Young Designers Market. Otherwise, the skirt is made-to-order in your choice of colours. Please contact me directly: thea[at]thea-sami.com.au

July 2011 Update: The Brisbane Skirt is no longer available but you may purchase the print to frame as a screen-printed panel from Brisbane City. Other links in this post may also now be non-existent.

The skirt was made for the Premier, she chose the pink and white. I love that she isn't afraid to wear colour; very appropriate for Queensland living!
