I'll let you in on a little secret....

I've been having a love affair for the last 21 years. When I was a fresh-faced and idealistic young fashion student at RMIT, I stumbled into something that would turn into a long, meaningful and very deep love..... I'm talking about the Nicholas Building in Melbourne.





Smack-bang in the heart of the city is this treasure-trove of artistic and creative folks, specialist suppliers and cute little galleries and shops. The virtually untouched architecture makes it feel like you could be in 1922...

Love it, love it, love it....

Now they're having OPEN STUDIOS....5-9pm on Thursday 28 and Friday 29 August

Well worth the effort if you can pop in for a peek at one of the real jewels in Melbourne's crown....

Thanks for the heads up. I've been wanting to go and check out the Nicholas building for ages. That will be the perfect time to do it.

I don't suppose the tailor's shop will be open?

Beautiful building!
Those two balconies are worth of a close-up, aren't they?

If you follow the link to the photographers Flickr photostream, there are MORE photos, including interior shots of the building. It's a wonderful place.

Not sure if Harvey's will be into "Open Studios".

One of mine, also.

We used to have a studio there.

I still miss it.
