Nina Wish Garden Party

Today I went to Warburton (in the beautiful Yarra Valley) to celebrate the opening of the new Nina Wish Designs there.

Marion and Gordon are some of my oldest and very dearest friends, and I've missed them since they moved to Warburton early this year. I've missed seeing the great things that they do with vintage fabrics (and contemporary fabrics with a classic or vintage feel)... so it was lovely to step into their new shop by the (picturesque end of the) Yarra River.

Marion's original prints have become a part of the range.
They compliment the vintage and reproduction prints of Nina Wish clothing (and cushion covers) beautifully.


Nina Wish are planning to sell online in the near future. If you join their mailing list you'll be kept informed and can snaffle up some truly original clothing or furnishings.

In the meantime, if you're ever in the Yarra Valley....
Nina Wish are open -
12 noon until 5pm - Friday, Saturday and Sunday
or by appointment, telephone 59669757
20 Dammans Road (cnr Martyr Rd) Warburton

(Tell them Nikki sent you - and that she sends her love).

Today's party sprawled out over the extensive gardens and everyone enjoyed a relaxed afternoon... and probably a bit too much cake (at least I did). The promised rain held off and it was perfect garden-party weather.

And there was a twirly-whirly girl in a pink dress in most photos taken today. Not sure who brought her.

Haha - looks like the sunscreen and cake covered blob of a dress survived the wash! It was perfect twirling weather today. :)

I'll have to add that to the list of things to do. Looks like a lovely new place they have.

What beautiful fabrics. I love vintage fabric. The twirly girl is probably showing off her lovely new dress!

Tania said...

Sheesh. Give the kid a break. You can't possibly expect her to non-twirl in a get-up like that?!?

PS. I'm looking out for her since we both got into the button making malarkey...
