Nook x Meta Design Co x Alarna Zinn collaboration. The story of a lovely little shop called Nook is woven into the creative fabric of West End, Brisbane and celebrates the very best in gifts, clothing, ceramics, reading and accessories. 2019 marked 10 years since Creative Director, Michelle Gillies, opened the doors. Under the careful supervision of shop assistance, local legend and fabric cat star, Lucy (#lucyshopcat), Michelle collaborated with local illustrator, Alarna Zinn, and myself to create a limited edition clothing range to reference and commemorate this beautiful little shop. The design includes Lucy (of course), the magpies that come to visit, the front window vine and awning, and the ever-present vases of flowers and plants found in Nook.
