Mystical, magical, foggy and beautiful, this was one of those ultra special moments that stopped us in our tracks. An early start saw us arrive 'on set' early for a dawn photoshoot, but all of our expectations were exceeded when we felt the magic in this forest. There was a palpable sense of history and intrigue, with barely a breath of wind, and droplets of water landing on our heads and noses from moisture laden leaves high above.
The sounds of the bush were stark yet comforting, with evey little animal, bird and insect waking up... Birdsong cut through the tranquility with almost manufactured acoustics, and the sound of crackling twigs and dried leaf litter underfoot was amplified by the stillness of the morning.
To celebrate the Oishi-m Autumn '19 collection, we played and ran amongst the bushland of Victoria's Ironbark Basin, situated near beautiful Point Addis. This is just one of our incredible environs on the doorstep of Oishi-m HQ, a region of immense beauty no matter the season, where we derive so much inspiration for our work and play.
With colours that pop against the earthy tones of native Australian bushland, Oishi-m garments always turn up the volume of our lives. While we may whisper and creep, trying to find creatures in the wild, our clothing speaks loudly and proudly of the energy of children. A colour palette spanning the brightest berries to the bluest seas, the greenest pastures to the richest jewels, we know no limitation to creativity in the pursuit of creating unique, treasured clothing for the most precious little beings - your children and ours.
And as the sun broke through and shone through the trees, we presented the kids with a breakfast of champions - cupcakes with sprinkles!
If they didn't already feel like they were dreaming, they certainly did now - thrilled to be eating cake confection on an outing with your best mates...
The strawberry swirl flavoured cupcakes with swiss meringue buttercream icing were prepared with love and abundance by our dear friend Meagan, at Sunday Arvo Petite Treats.
Like opening a present before reading the card, we can all relate to this little guy's style - eating the decadent icing before nibbling the cake.
Thank you for all of your support over all these marvellous years, there's never been a sweeter community of people to love a brand. Left Lucy Hoodie wishes we could eat cake with you all!!!
Our hearts were singing with the great pleasure of our magical morning. Thanks for being part of our incredible community. We have loved sharing your milestones with your little ones. While it is soon a goodbye for Oishi-m as we have known it, we hope your Oishi-m pieces will continue on and have many adventures with your munchkin. We say hooray, we reach for the stars, we love everything about what we do, and we will forever take pride in seeing Oishi-m on your children, in the wild.
