Jodie Thompson’s creative project Jodie Louise Millinery has relocated from area now occupied by potteryali to a standalone space within The Emporium. Given Spring Racing Carnival Season is already underway, it’s peak time for hats and fascinators and the relocation to a bigger space couldn’t be better for Jodie allowing her to exhibit a growing range of handmade millinery pieces.
Jodie Louise Millinery now occupies the space previously activated by Wendy Ratcliffe’s vintage couture studio InVintaged. Wendy recently became a mum and is using this special time to wind back her operations to an online presence only via invintaged.com.
