Fashpack on location in Australia

Posts have been irregular lately, and readers, a heartfelt apology to all (five) of you. The good news is that while I’ve been bludging my pants off on an extended summer holiday in Australia, the site has been slightly revamped. Stay tuned for some fashion delicacies from these sunburnt shores which include unexpected hints of Freetown inspired style as well as unique Aussie looks.


Speaking of, this is me and my darling mother perched in front of the jewel of the Australian outback – Uluru. Joan’s number one fashion tip is ‘Always have clean hair and clean teeth’. Her outback look includes a pink cotton gingham shirt, khaki shorts and a sensible pair of walkers. And in case you’re wondering, we are both reading the best book of 2012 –The Burial, written by my clever friend Courtney Collins. Go buy a copy and then visit Uluru.

  1. I was reading a book about Sierra Leone, by Aminatta Forna, when I came across your blog in the Sydney Morning Herald. I have been reading ever since :) Another co-incidence is that I am a librarian and Courtney Collins came and spoke at my library last year! Sometimes there seem to be far fewer than six degrees of separation.


  2. Jo, I love the new site and (although it goes without saying) am a huge fan of the content. Living in Congo, I too see some excellent fashion but your eye, wit and obvious connection with the scene leave me envious and always wanting more. Get back to Slone as fast as those short-clad legs will take you. (Courtney – who is your Congo distributor?)
