we ventured to sydney recently for the wearer's right - a trade show showcasing our favourite labels.

we stayed in bondi. late night delicacies from mamasans.. morning pick me ups at jeds and cruising bondi's shopping hotspots - market research of course...

...and then we arrived at the horden pavillion for the main show TWR.
...amazing lace, fur, jewellery and knits at stolen girlfriends club (expect to see in store in autumn 2012)
...jamie fame and their hand carved styrofoam bones - epic!
...and of course our local loves lilya which can we say is the best collection yet. be prepared for lilya winter 2012 - our wish list is very long!
there was much beer and pingpong before heading to hugo's bar in the cross for a few (ahem) drinks.

day 2 was spent longing over more autumn winter treats, bassike and something else. who knew we would want winter again so soon! we can promise autumn winter 2012 for alterior motif will be full of colour, digital prints, luxe fabrics, detailing and textures xx

little glass gardens

we are really digging terrariums at the moment. they have made a comeback from the daggy aquarium days. collecting moss, crystals, and minature plants in glass and prisms seems so adorable. you will definitely see a few floating in our stores soon. little glass gardens..
