Tropical Flowers - launch of new silk scarves

by Jill Booth
(Port Douglas, North Queensland)



Jill Booth is about to launch a new series of luxurious silk scarves on Saturday September 7 (10am - 4pm) at 5 Ocean View Drive, Port Douglas.

Designs are based on the tropical flowers that grow in our North Queensland gardens so the over-riding impression is one of a mixture of bright, strong colours.

Drawn and painted images of flowers meld with abstract impressions of the jungle, which surrounds the artist's studio, or with photographs of actual flowers, collaged together.

The result is a choice of high quality fashion accessories that will 'dress up' a plain coloured outfit either as a wrap or as versatile scarves of various sizes.

But it is the feel of silk that is so special - from silky satin georgette to timeless crepe de chine or a lighter weight habotai weave, the choice is yours.

Silk is a protein fibre (as is wool) and very tough unless doused with chemicals, such as chlorine. With gentle hand washing and simple care it may last a lifetime - today's fashion becomes tomorrow's heirloom?

You are invited to join Jill daily from Saturday September 7 (Election day in Australia!) until Sunday September 15. Have fun trying on the scarves and wraps - wear your favourite plain colour or black or white.

These scarves also make very special gifts and are inexpensive to post.

Also available for purchase are 'one off' lengths of silk-cotton fabric, all hand painted by Jill and so comfortable to wear in a hot climate. They measure approximately two to five metres in length and are 1.15 metres wide.

Prints, paintings and a new range of greeting cards complete the 'goodies' on offer. We hope to see you there!
