Shot at the unique artist-space that is Ashmore Arts in Torquay on Victoria's Great Ocean Road, our kids lead us on an adventure from the art studios to the open spaces surrounding them. The colours of our garments popped against the sunburnt natural environment, hay and rolling hills, with a vista overlooking magnificent Spring Creek. We played hide n seek, running races, looked for volcanoes (yeppp...), and played chasey with the cameraman.
A visit to this commercial hub for local artists of all genres will reveal up to 18 artists who all create and work from a collective of art studios located on the property in the outskirts of Torquay. Ashmore Arts is a rapidly growing arts centre for painters, ceramic artists, sculptors, furniture makers, a blacksmith, knife maker, graphic designers, public art creators, an animator and much much more...
Just like the season, this incredibly beautiful A-line dress is ablaze with autumnal colours. Our Days Are Longer Dress is all about the delights of daisies and the changes that each season brings, with a floral printed chambray front and a bird twig printed front peekaboo panel and sleeve frills.
Days spent exploring, this is what living is all about! Our Campground Shortsleeve T Shirt celebrates the best of the outdoors, and takes a colour palette of emerald green to royal blue seas, all under the warmth of a sunshiney day.

Candystripes make super sweet sleeves and our practical envelope neck has contrast bubblegum pink neck binding.
Pretty in pink, our Coconut Ice Slice Longsleeve T Shirt reminds us of the traditional sweet and crunchy slice, and will be just as popular amongst the kids! Layers of pinks with floral printed sleeves look amazing with our Bubble-o-Blooms Classic Jean, as she takes her sister's hand for a stroll...

Wow, there are few words to describe the magnificence of our latest 'pinny' - the Springaling Pinafore Dress is made from cotton embroidered chambray that feels delightful to the touch. With denim accents for the straps and waistband, this style is lined with Japanese cherry blossoms in cherry red with gold metallic keyline details, also featured in the inverted skirt panels.
We hope you can feel the sun on your skin, and the energy it brings, from these images... We fell in love with the sunburnt earthy tones of late summer grasses and hay, combined with weathered old jetty pylons and piles of rusted junk that will one day make themselves into upcycled treasure. Here, artists are not the only one's at work; nature's elements are doing the prep work ahead of the tinkerers and craftspeople's tools at Ashmore Arts.
