Media, Collaboration and Awards
Kablooie Store is a Brisbane based, handmade fashion label, Australian owned, designed and made. I'm ALL about showcasing local Australian fabric designers and makers in big, bold, crazily fun collections.
Kablooie has grown over several years, and now boasts a growing crowd of (dare I say) obsessed and blissfully happy customers, and an impressive list of creative collaborators, including Kenzie Collective, Ellie Whittaker, Brook Gossen, Top Knot Girl, Girt Squad, Inkling Store, Blue Beetle Co and Salvation Jewellery.
Wanna work with Kablooie? I'm not taking on any new designs right now, but feel free to get in touch to discuss working together from 2022 onwards. (At this stage I am only seeking to collaborate in the future on permanently exclusive surface pattern designs)
