Dear Internets,

Recently we attended MONA, a collaboration between celebrated Australian photographer Georges Antoni and Sydney-based accessories designer, Jo Scahill of L’Avion at the Rex-Livingston Gallery in Darlinghurst.

The event featured gorgeous photographs of roses by Antoni digitally printed onto L’Avion’s silk Crêpe de Chine scarves.  Scahill explained to the crowd that she hand-stitched each of the scarves to the canvas they are mounted on.  Proceeds of the sales of the framed scarves go to Telecross, who lend a friendly to the elderly and housebound living in remote areas of Australia by regularly contacting them via telephone to check on their wellbeing.

At the centre of the gallery was a gorgeous floral installation from Mr Cook – a tactile reminder of the subject matter of the MONA collection.  Guests sipped on glasses of wine from Jacob’s Creek’s Cool Harvest range.

Bright Green Laces was invited as a guest of Park Avenue PR.
