One of the reasons I had wanted to go to Australia in the first place is I had been hearing about the great design and shops going on down there for years. I even brought an empty suitcase with me because I was planning on going shopping. My friend Amy Moss from Eat Drink Chic took me around Fitzroy one rainy afternoon to visit some shops. The reality definitely lived up to the hype. It was so inspiring to see new design and things I hadn’t seen before. Especially because a lot of time the Internet can feel so saturated with ideas. It was nice to see new things!
