Breakfast in Babbage: Fashion!

Lights! Models! Guestlist!

Fa fa fa FASHION! Clothes make the man, but sometimes the man is still hideously dressed. What are considered must haves one year are consigned to the fright pile within a few, only to be revived by their children as "retro chic".

Join Edward Pearse as he explores the music of fashion: blue suede shoes, sunglasses at night, Chantilly lace, and boots that are made for walking (I wonder if Chris Walken has ever covered that song?).

And we're back to Breakfast settings! Saturday MORNING 8am - 10am SLT 12th of April at The Clarendon in New Babbage.

Will you wear your best to Breakfast or will it be a fashion disaster? Maybe even still in rollers and facemask?

BYO champers dahling!

Farewell Dirk Talamasca

It had been some years since Dirk and I had spoken, but I remember him as a very helpful member of Caledon in my early years there.

It was with a sad nostalgia that I saw the blog posts about his passing. I was even more impressed at some of the more widely recognised names who attended Dirk's memorial this past weekend.

I was glad to hear the anecdotes from people who knew him far better than I, and happy that his typist was with family at the end.

Valé Dirk.
