    This is very very cool! I love the asymmetry of the coat when closed down the front… and the pants, and the necklace, and the shirt… You are brilliant!

    What a great and inspired look. The design detailing and the silhouette of the coat draws you into to the whole theme like a painting by any great artist. The balance of the outfit shows off your talent!

    Gosh, your work is so inspiring! I think I like this even more than your tent coat!

      Thanks so much. Ruffles, if you come to Sydney go to Reverse Garbage (I know there is one in Melbourne too) or The Bower – sells old junk really.
