Style for Christmas: All About My Mother

I wanted to create a fun themed ‘gift giving’ series that reflects who The Garb Wire is. To do this I selected film titles from the New York Times Best 1000 Movies Ever Made list, then hunted & gathered products inspired by the names. It’s been incredibly fun.

Celebrated Melbourne stylist Mel Brady has selected plants and blooms for each of the themes, so get inspired and give a living token of love to your dear ones. Surround them with beauty!

This first one is for mothers. Our mums. Us mums. Treat her to something she wouldn’t dream of buying for herself (I think that’s where I’m different. I would and do dream of buying these for myself – what a heartless woman).

Click on the images for a closer look. At the end of each edit in the Style for Christmas series, there will be a list of brands so you can shop online (and work hard to resist buying for yourself).
