Collaborations

Things That Never Change

Things That Never Change

How many people have gone through this place?
How many emotions were experienced?
So many stories were created here and played out.
We were tricked and surprised, sad and joyful.
We laughed and laughed and we cried.
Years have passed, and now we have moved on.
We relocate to something new. 


We grew up and left this city.
Newcomers walk the streets of this town.

And they come through this place.
The sprite fairy has stayed and watched them all.
She becomes sentimental and emotional sometimes, but then laughs.
140 years later, the little sprite fairy is still...


Lego was his favourite thing for many many years.

Lego was his favourite thing for many many years.

During this latest lockdown in Brisbane, we had another clean up at my home. 
It felt like our place is growing and accumulating too many things over time. 
We have two teenagers in my family, my son wanted more space in his room. 
Our son just turned 15 and has started to be more conscious about his look more than anything.

He added new T-shirts...


A collaboration between my customers and I.

A collaboration between my customers and I.

I love it when my customers show me how they wear and style dogstar pieces for themselves. 
They sometimes wear upside down, back to front, they pin the hems or tuck the volume of the skirt to mold and create the shapes to suit their body type and their personality. 
It's just like shaping pottery, or layering paint on a canvas. 
The textures and colours of the clothes mix with their body shapes and my customers just love to finish the final look. 
Sometimes it's so unique I can't recognise that they are dogstar pieces. 
One day...


My Grandma just turned 103 years old.

My Grandma just turned 103 years old.

My grandma turned 103 years old the other day.
I haven't seen my family for almost 2 years now, but feel like I haven't seen them for more than decades. These days my grandma wakes up for a short time everyday. When my grandma wakes up, she makes sure that my mum is near her and my grandma seems happy. They have a routine life that is very simple and slow in the countryside of my hometown.

I sometimes wonder if it may be one of the happiest times of their lives where...

Collage of Memories

When they were little, my children used to be interested in everything that I used to do.

Cooking, cleaning, crafting or sewing, anything I did they used to follow me all day long. It often made achieving anything a slow process. I miss that time very much. 
These days my teens are not interested in anything that I do. 
I feel a bit empty sometimes. 
My eldest one is going to be 17 this year and she is slowly changing towards me, showing some vague interest in my projects. I wonder if my daughter...
