Adelaide Fashion Festival

I get extra SA proud when telling all my interstate friends about this Adelady.  You just need to look at one of her clutches or necklaces and you can’t help but feel cheerful. Adelaide Fashion Festival, presented by Mercedes-Benz Adelaide, is proud to include this super talented Inspirational Adelady this year…Tiff Manuell!

Tiff Manuell is an Adelaide designer and with was the stand out new-comer at Adelaide Fashion Festival last year. She’s known for her bold, super bright and abstract hand-painted canvases that she transforms into a range of jewellery, accessories and clothes. Each piece is hand-crafted in her awesome SA studio and all are individually numbered so we know each piece is a one-off!

Tiff Manuell is spreading happiness and colouring the world, with her work now being stocked internationally, including at the Tate Modern Gallery, one of London’s coolest and most popular galleries. How cool is that?! You can and should revel in Tiff’s stunning work at the Adelaide Fashion Festival on Runway 5, Friday, October 21, 8.30pm. You can buy your tickets HERE.

Her art makes us happy, so this week she’s our Inspirational Adelady. These are some of her fave places in Adelaide:

Fave Place to Shop

That’s too hard, there are too many. I love a great collection all in one shop, I think it has to be a special occasion shop that takes you on a bit of a journey. I have to say Pony, it’s a real destination trip in the hills in a tiny township called Charleston, a total surprise hiding in the country, blink and you would miss it but it’s so worth the gorgeous drive.

Fave Place to Eat + Drink

That changes month to month, I love Whistle and Flute right now, it’s close to my work studio, a new spot with fantastic fresh vibrant simple dishes with a fun atmosphere.

Fave Hidden Gem

I can’t decide and I feel it’s too hard to say just one……. Etienne, Bauhaus, Maple, Little Bohemian, Littlest Vintage.
