Overcast and raining but never the less impressive, the Northern Beaches in Sydney is a hive of fashion activity. I visited the girls from Bassike, Mary Lou and Deb at their amazing Palm Beach office or as I call it a retreat. I’m shown their new collection of wardrobe staples (yes I have a selection of their quality cotton tee’s, dresses and blazers) and Mary Lou reminds me how she did work experience with me many moons ago when I was at marie claire.

Their offices are complete with all the trimmings of serious work, and their desks are filled with computers, fabric swatches and lots paperwork piled high to run their international business that has grown to incredible proportions in the last couple of years.
But with breath taking views of Palm Beach, I don’t know how they get any work done!
Their dog Butch… yes the girls have a good sense of humor.

I’m finally on holidays, feeling happy, healthy and already shopping. It helps that I’m on vacation with Nicky and Simone Zimmermann.
We sat down in their new pop up store in Whale Beach, with the soft sound of crashing waves outside and the hum of reggae playing instore. We chatted plans for new years eve, bikini’s, panama hats and gossiped old times.
