By immersing herself in what truly inspires her — art, traditional crafts, and colour as a reflection of everyday life, Madame Hall has flourished, attracting a dedicated community of followers and customers from around the world, and even gracing the pages of Australian Vogue on one Cate Blanchett.
Los Angeles based designer and artist Suzi Click is a collector. Widely known for her artisan apparel and accessories line, the embodiment of her own, eclectic more is better boho style, Suzi layers both fabric and memory into each of her creations. Her 1920’s Spanish Revival home and studio is embellished with distinctive fabrics, imagery, ornamental trims and tassels collected from a lifetime of travel and an interest in tribal culture and costume.
Margot Spalding first came across our radar here at Broad because of her bold style, and #funwithfashion ethos for women over 50. But as the title of her Australian Story segment rightly suggests, Margot is a force of nature. Despite being dealt the cruellest of blows at 15 when she lost both her parents, and then again at 17 when she lost her sister, Margot has in the words of her daughter Georgia ‘thrown herself at life’ — dedicating herself to supporting others and standing up for those without a voice.
Some young girls are really into pink. Others insist on dressing up – princess for a day is a popular theme.

Even at age three, a sense of timeless styling had Elizabeth Kingston in its grip.
Bali has long drawn visitors and expats in with its endearing chaos and exotic, tropical vibe. But for Ginette Pearson, it was the vivid local textiles that prompted her return visits, ahead of a more permanent one, armed with only a single suitcase and a sewing machine.
