There will be some absolute treasures at this one!

Tina Kalivas SS09/10 - Fortune

The Ancient Greeks believed the Gods were controlling their destiny.
Fortune is the Goddess of Fate.
She stands Blindfolded in the center of the astrological wheel.
The Astrology chart was designed to map her influence at the moment of one’s birth.

This incredibly detailed collection is heavily inspired by fantasy and fortune telling with references to Greek mythology. Garments are embellished with sequins, gem stones, silk gathered tulle, tassels, lace ups, and tie-dye, mimicking mythological creatures and fantastical insects. Truly breathtaking...

LU FLUX - Innocent Merriment AW 09

Ethical clothing designer Lu flux makes one off contemporary menswear and womenswear pieces from salvaged, vintage and organic fabrics using traditional techniques including patchwork, pleating and knitting.
Her environmentally friendly approach of making something new out of something old reduces waste and consumes less, a great thing to achieve in this disposable modern world!

Deadly Ponies - Hathor's Revenge

Deadly Ponies represents the united creative worlds of Liam Bowden and Katie Smith. The New Zealand based accessories design duo lovingly make each piece by hand thus creating quirky idiosyncrasies which emphasize the beauty that leather beholds.
Deadly Ponies latest offering aptly titled Hathor's Revenge has drawn its inspiration from Egyptian goddesses.

My personal pick of the collection is the Mr Spider catcher bag featured below. I love the texture. The Mr Head Hanger Black Cat pendant is rather endearing too.
