I dropped by the Gucci store, where I was able to witness the skilled artisans emboss my very own bamboo purse (thank you!). I loved being reminded of the beautiful craftsmanship put into everything they make.

My personalised ‘SMR’ purse, love it!
The ‘Artisan Corner’ will run in the Sydney and Melbourne Gucci stores this month.

Many Photographers have an affinity with wilted flowers. Is it their way of taking time out from the surrounds of perfectly composed images? An opportunity to see beauty in decay and embrace elegance in a new way.
