The Garb Wire: Hits of 2016

We’re incredibly honoured to nominate ourselves as yet another website with a round up of our favourite things for another year.

My heartfelt thanks to you for popping in to The Garb Wire from time to time. It’s my epic project of passion – it keeps me sane/insane while having three hectic sons, and trying to find my way in Melbourne post fashion career identity/ life in San Francisco/ life itself. If you appreciate a long read, you’re probably still hanging in there, even now. I write for you. Here were our most popular posts for 2016. As it happens, some of the legends I’ve had the fortune to write about shared my work with the world, like it meant something to them, which in turn, means the world to me. 2017 is going to smash it. The Garb Wire is an ad free space where we all admire the beautiful, inspired things and clever people. I love it, and I hope more people will too, someday.

In the name of music, fashion, style, travel and being a smarter citizen of the world, I look forward to doing all sorts of fun stuff in the new year, maintaining the good bonds I’ve formed with record companies and museums all over the world, interviewing my idols in person, and travelling more.

Big love and thanks to Tania Ogier for her constant support, reportage and editorial contributions while working full time and being a Mum, thank you Tinks for your taste testing reassurance, and thank you Rich, TGW co-founder, husban’ and “Director of Finance” for TGW.
