RED OF JAPAN
When Autumn dyes the whole mountain with several shades of red, people not only see, but can feel the change of the new coming season.
Soon the temperature drops quickly and all animals and insects are getting ready for a tough winter.

Monju Mountain
I went to Monju mountain in my home town with my good friends and my children to celebrate the end of 2017. I did not know what to expect.

To whom I never met before
I recently purchased those beautiful old Japanese threads in a box from Facebook marketplace. It was an impulse purchase and it reminded me of my mum who used to make kimonos when she was young in Kyoto.

Memories of my hometown.
I grew up in a snowy country village in Japan. The amount of snow that we have is so much, sometimes we had to go outside from the second floor. The view of the snowy horizon was incredibly beautiful.

DRESS THAT DANCES
On a cold winter day, I am wearing a dress that dances. As I take slow steps in my room the fabric starts moving back and forward and inviting my bowler hat to come along.

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 here.She doesn't change.She will never change.  ...

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 started to spend more time in front of the mirror trying to get his curtain fringe perfect.  He added new T-shirts and pants that he bought from op shops and quietly stole from his sister's wardrobe and placed into his own draws.

A collaboration between my customers and I.

I love it when my customers show me how they wear and style enlacasona 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 enlacasona pieces.  One day I was waiting for a pedestrian at...

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 they don't have to worry about anything any more....
