Aussie designs on show The synergy of local inspiration and natural fibres
very year Brisbane looks forward to the annual agricultural show with dagwood dogs, strawberry ice cream, â€˜moo cowsâ€™ and whip cracking! The Qld Ekka is also a great showcase of our Queensland natural fibres and beautiful garments from local designers. The days where local, sustainable, ethical fashions mean something without style are long gone!
A great local option in Brisbane is ladies shop Lamington Ave in Paddington, which stocks a large range of natural fibres of cotton and linen all made locally in Australia. Cotton Knit Pleat Front Skirt with Pocket $145
Here are a few of my favourite local designers. RANT
Making the most of our super fibre Merino Wool, take a look at Rant, a Brisbane ethical label using natural fibres to create stylish pieces for the modern woman wanting style and sustainability at the same time.
THE RESIN TREE
Add a beautiful touch of local artistsâ€™ jewellery into your accessory collection? Based in Ayr, The Resin Tree uses local leaves, flowers and in this case red lichen (a local moss-like plant) â€“ a stunning addition helping local artists thrive. Real red lichen triangle necklace on a 925 sterling silver chain $25
SANDRA VIDEN DESIGNS
For a large range of Australian made, 95% cotton and 100% linen dresses, skirts, pants and tops in so many different beautiful styles, look no further than Northern Qld label Sandra Viden Designs â€“ with size ranges going from 2XS to 3XL.
Merino Marni shrug taupe, pure wool $179

Morning madness Everyone knows that school day mornings are not for the faint-hearted. One particular day was â€œunforgettableâ€? for our Power of Mum writer, Amanda Sheehan. By 6.30 am she has the uniforms ironed, breakfasts made and a load of washing in the machine. After letting the painter in and making lunches, all havoc breaks loose when the family dog runs inside and devours a favourite teddy with savage intent. Mum does the inevitable rescue, of dog and teddy, only to then conduct a search-and-find for lost homework while collecting a menagerie of school bag items on the way. Itâ€™s 7 am. By 7.45 am Amanda has fought a losing battle with her 7-year-old over hair brushing, made lunches and even got another load on. They race to the car but one child ismissing. Where is she?
