Madame Willow

Kit Willow’s photos from recent days in Paris. This visual diary represents overall inspirations for all her collections, where the signature drape began..

“Misia, the muse. My gorgeous free spirited little girl, discovering Paris. She’s the inspiration and drive for everything that I do.” Kit.

“I visited ‘Madame Grès, La Couture à L’Oeuvre’ which is the 1st retrospective in Paris of the work of this visionary couturier, it was an amazing exhibition organized by the Musée Galliera, and showcased at Musée Bourdelle – Madame Grès (1903-1993). She is an incredible ongoing inspiration.” Kit

“Madame Grès symbolizes the very essence of couture, the rigor of minimalism.” Kit.

For a sneak peek of Willow‘s latest resort collection, as well as what’s just arrived in-store come to Willow‘s David Jones store in Sydney Thursday 8th Sept between 6-7pm and see interview Kit about her latest collections for Vogue Fashion’s Night Out.

Daddy’s Girl

Syd Frydman and Lea Frydman (my mum and dad in the 60’s)

Best and worst Father’s day presents….

I thought the worst present I gave my dad was a scented candle but he actually liked it! I had 2 minutes in the most inappropriate girly shop. I think this post is the best present & writing how much I adore my dad & everything he’s done for me, but he’ll think it’s the worst! cheesy!

Nicky and Simone Zimmermann (Zimmermann)
“The worst present was nothing; wasn’t proud of that! Best present was a holiday; quite proud of that!”

Camilla Freeman (camilla and marc)
I thought it would be a great idea to organize a sailing experience on an America’s Cup racing yacht in Sydney harbor. He loves sailing and I figure it’s a better gift than a set of steak knives! (the worst)
