fash­ion for­ward

“I sub­scribe to pretty much ev­ery mag­a­zine re­lated to fash­ion and in­te­ri­ors, and I buy a lot of books. I like to look at how peo­ple are pre­sent­ing their ideas, whether it be flow­ers, fash­ion or editorials. Ob­vi­ously, it’s all very ac­ces­si­ble on the web now, but I feel when peo­ple have cu­rated some­thing and taken it to print, it’s of­ten much more thought out. This is why I think there is still a place for mag­a­zines. The for­mat may be chang­ing, but the out­put is still there. Fash­ion is a big part of the con­ver­sa­tion my sis­ter Caro­line and I have, and we ob­vi­ously really en­joy con­sum­ing fash­ion, too.”

TA­BLE TOP­PER

“I’m work­ing with a friend on a home­wares range, due to launch this month. We worked to­gether on all of the de­signs and I hand-painted the pat­terns that ap­pear on some of the plates. We want to in­tro­duce colour to ta­blescapes. It’s an en­tirely new brand and busi­ness called In The Round House, so I’m really ex­cited. Who knows where it’ll go? But I just love cre­at­ing and do­ing new things.”

“I loved pink be­fore it was on-trend. I’ve al­ways been really at­tracted to the colour” ~ Alyce Tran, founder, TDE

sweet char­ity

“I wanted to do some­thing dif­fer­ent for Breast Cancer Aware­ness Month. I feel like ‘Pink Oc­to­ber’ has really fallen off in the fash­ion space, so I wanted to bring it back. There’s still no cure [for breast cancer], it’s ob­vi­ously still an is­sue. So in Oc­to­ber, we had a col­lec­tion fea­tur­ing de­signs by artist Ari­anna Mar­gulis of @but­like­maybe (see phone case be­low right) and we do­nated to the Na­tional Breast Cancer Foun­da­tion.”

HOME RUN

“This is my first home – I bought it when I was quite young and didn’t know much about in­te­ri­ors. I think my next house is where I’m really go­ing to un­leash. This is my comin­gof-age home – the liv­ing room is more func­tional and it’s where my sis­ter and I hang out and watch The Bach­e­lor. The art­work (above) is called ‘Hydrangeas’ by Derek Hen­der­son and the [‘Piper’ pen­dant] lights are from Jar­dan.”

ART­FUL AF­FAIR

“My art col­lec­tion is based around the colour pink – it’s a new in­ter­est. Re­cently I bought a Holly Ryan sculp­ture (above cen­tre) and a Dan Kyle piece (above left) from the Syd­ney Con­tem­po­rary Art Fair. Th­ese flow­ers are ac­tu­ally by my lo­cal florist Sum­mers Flo­ral – I like to buy lo­cally where pos­si­ble, be­cause I need my lo­cal high street to stay alive.”

pic­ture per­fect

“My life is split be­tween Mel­bourne and Syd­ney, so I wear a lot more of my wardrobe than I oth­er­wise would. My Sag­i­tine draw­ers (right) are from Becker Minty

– I saw the po­laroid idea on In­sta­gram. My flower ad­dic­tion started in my days as a lawyer. Then I met [florist] Ge­orge Low when I started The Daily Edited. I’ve learnt a lot from Ge­orge – now I really en­joy hav­ing flow­ers in any space.”
