    Zilpah Tart – A Fashfest First Three Years In The Making

    Zilpah Tart – A Fashfest First Three Years In The Making

    Source : Ink & Leathers

    Zilpah Tart has held a special place in my heart for a few years now. I love to see our local Canberra design talents develop and achieve great things, and you would be hard-pressed to find a label that is achieving as much as the creations of designer Yumi Morrissey. Bright colours balanced with sleek, feminine styling – Zilpah Tart conjures for me a sense of union between Dianne Von Furstenberg  and Emilio Pucci.

    I’ve known Andrea since I started working with FASHFEST five years ago—first as a musician and then as the music director. Her husband Clint introduced us, but we’ve never had a chance to really catch up properly because most of the time he would cut off our pleasantries with ‘Ash I need you to do one more thing for me’. So, this was my chance.
