Happy Australia Day!

A few months ago, I was presented with the creative challenge
from my friend James to come up with an outfit that he can wear to the APSAS awards ceremony in Queensland, Australia. The theme was Australiana and lucky for me, James is adventurous and allowed me total creative license. I'm not sure even he thought he would end up with a cockatoo coming out of his pocket! But you can't get any more Australian than a cockatoo and a bit of bush flowers and fauna!

Well, Bruce the cockatoo (Yes, he got named Bruce) came out for some fresh air again when the launch of a new exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria on Australian fashion designer Linda Jackson- Bush Couture was officially launched. Bruce enjoyed lots of attention and pats, and all the women swooned over him. I'm glad he got to come out and play for Australia Day and I hope you too spend the day in a creative way, in fine company, feathered or other kind and celebrate all that makes Australia what it is today.
