claire perrin: interview

Bridget Conway
No comments

I don’t know about you, but I’m someone who finds it incredibly difficult to obtain fashion items that are also comfortable and practical.

No comments

  Whilst travelling in Europe in 2011, playwright David Atfield kept seeing the same face in museums- an undeniably beautiful Roman youth, named Antinous, but always unclearly labelled.

When I attended the recent opening of her current “Australian Roadkill” show at Lamington…

Amy Nicholls-Diver
