Birds of a Feather


Textile designers giggling in a fountain in Cape Town's Gardens.

From left to right: Cara and Chloe of Twine Fabric, Heather of Skinny laMinx, Melissa of Lula Fabrics (pdf link) and me. Photo by Xander Ferreira, make up and feathers by Jade Leggat. Ultimately responsible: Georgia Gardner from Obrigado magazine.

For an article in Obrigado about, yep, textile designers. The issue's been out for ages, but I've been pussyfooting around about blogging it. It all felt a little strange: the feathers, the designer clothes, the tourists taking photos, the walk through town to the Gardens, the squirrels trying to eat my toes because my nails were painted yellow in case our feet were in the shot.

GET OUT! It is totally appropriate that you gorgeous ladies (inside, out and all around) be dolled up and presented in such a fantastic manner. Cudos to the mag for this wonderful feature.
