The New Black episode2: Am I Imelda?

by Patsyfox on December 31, 2017


Ah yes, if you have just read the entire archive of this blog you will have seen this sketch – I’ve been loving drawing the brilliant designs of Preston Zly for *quite some time*. On today’s episode 2 of The New Black on 3RRR radio we chatted all things SHOES (including just how many pairs I own) with the brilliant designers behind the brand – Peter Zly and Johanna Preston. What a treat. They are passionate and incredibly knowledgeable about the art and craft of designing and making shoes. You can see touch and smell their designs at their studio store at The Rear 219 Smith St Fitzroy (we’re talking Melbourne here) and check out their website here, or their instagram @prestonzly. Oh, and here’s Peter and Johanna!


After shoes we brought in Anthony Capon, designer for Et Al, and Bridal couture designer Craig Braybrook. Aside from being friends, they have both featured on Project Runway Australia – Anthony WON Season 2, and Craig was runner up in Season 3. Interesting to hear about their very different work, and being cast on Project Runway by the producers who got each of their personalities all wrong – can you tell who was naughty and who was nice?


You’ll have to listen back to the show to find out, and hear about just how far back Craig and I go. You can listen here, and finally I remembered to do a selfie with my guests – better late than never. Check out Anthony’s Instagram @i_am_anthonycapon and Craig’s @craigbraybrookcouture – They are two very talented guys, as well as being a whole lot of mischief. Enjoy.
