Fame in Nomad’s land

Everyone knows that a picture’s worth a thousand words, but I wonder what this picture of me and the DJ from the Nomad launch party is saying? Possibly “we never met until a few seconds ago and yet we’re being made to smile and pose like we go way back”? That’s what it should be saying anyway! And next time, I should stick with just the picture… what on earth was I thinking when I said that I think about icecream when my mind wanders…?? (admittedly it is true some of the time…)

I was at the party last Thursday for work, and if you like you can read my little party piece here.

Nomad is a new boutique at 194 Bridport Street, Albert Park which has a decidedly Mexican flavour. What this basically means is that it is fabulously colourful and I loved it.

Here’s a little guided tour!

Silk scarves with extremely intricate patterns…







Embroidered cushions by indigenous Australian artists…

Furniture from I don’t know where, but it’s certainly very tricky on the eye!



A long cool corridor (I’d guess the shop was once a house, and a lot of the houses in that area are very long rather than having a wide frontage).

The kitchen full of Mexican knick knacks…

















The courtyard with huge mosaic/multi media works by an artist whose name I did not find out, annoyingly. I love these works, as they are so unexpected and they create such atmosphere (great lighting! My camera usually can’t cope at night!).

This one has broken plates as the backdrop...

The mosaic tiles in this one are bits of mirror…

This one was my favourite, I think the tiles in the backdrop are pieces of mirror. Don’t you think the model looks like Maggie Rizer? (Now that’s a blast from the past!) I love the satin sheen on her huge puffy baby-blue sleeves.

And one more for luck where you can see how the works fit in with the great outdoors – I love how they look exactly right on the white wall with the tree branches framing them.
