Oh, What A Night!

It was all about good vibes, delicious food and great conversation when we launched our AW 17 Slow Livin’ collection and premiered our short film SLOW at The Fig Tree in Byron Bay last week.
A group of inspiring folk joined us for INK gin and Pure Cane Rum cocktails, tunes by Milo Green, canapés and a delicious sit-down dinner lovingly prepared by the team at the Fig Tree.
Our film SLOW created by cinematographer Stefan Jose and director Lincoln Caplice, centered on the Sawyer family and their free-range lifestyle, touched us all and served as a poignant reminder to enjoy life’s precious little moments.
Hosted by our MC Jess Skarratt, guests Julia Ashwood, Claire Alexander-Johnston and Elisa Sawyer kindly took part in an insightful and very funny panel discussion on the benefits of living a little slower.
After all, those little moments, those little things, they’re not little. A huge thank you to the following people for helping us create the perfect evening:
