I've talked a lot here about my past experience working with Kinfolk and how grateful I am to be able to collaborate with such visually creative people. What never ceases to amaze me is that each event we team up on continually impresses me, pushes boundaries and creates a lasting vision in my mind.
Our most recent Wabi Sabi Messy Meal was no exception.
The latest Kinfolk gathering kicked off around the world on October 11 with Sydney being one of the first host countries and we happily embraced the unique theme of 'wabi sabi' - or the art of imperfection. We left behind the preconceived ideas of what a Kinfolk dinner should look like and created something unique and different on a beautiful Sydney afternoon with the most interesting group of strangers.
The sun was shinning on our private rooftop loft on the top floor of The Stables Retail Concept in Bourke Rd Surry Hills. Imagine exposed brick walls, aged timber beams, concrete floors and a rooftop garden. Combined with my hosting BFF's, food from Mario's Kitchen and wine from Cake Wines it was pretty much perfection.
But like all great things, there was a team involved that made it happen. My dream team and I'm eternally grateful for their support and hard work - for this event and always. Find the beauty in the imperfections, you may just be surprised at what you see...
A special thanks to our event partners:
