Japan grabs Designer Sally Smith’s heart

Designer Sally Smith pop up shop sale in Crown Street, Surry Hills

For the past year several friends have been saying you must meet Sally Smith, she now lives in Kyoto, Japan ... but you will love her.

Last week, I met Sally Smith the designer and I do love her, we didn't have a lot of time - it was the last few days of a Pop Up she had in Surry Hills - but the conversation will be ongoing.

This is what sally has to say about what she is doing..

"Kyoto Japan, my home now for 3 years, is infinitely inspirational, as my extensive collection of Japanese Textiles attests. Antique, vintage and Mid Century Modern… they find a temporary home in my Kyoto Studio as their 2nd life awaits, reworked and transformed into handcrafted pieces for my current collection, soon to be your cherished wardrobe addition.

Exquisite handpainted, Shibori tie dye and intricate embroideries catch my eye as I scour the Temple Markets and Textile Vendors of Kyoto.

Nothing beats the thrill I get upon discovering a new piece of immense beauty and craftsmanship that are the textiles of Japan.
