High Tea With Mrs Woo

A quirky name, exotic inheritance and three sisters' love for fashion design. These are some of the ingredients behind High Tea with Mrs Woo's fashion success. Launched in 2004 by Rowena, Juliana and Angela Foong, these sisters have put together a unique combination of Western influences and Eastern charm. Brought up by Chinese Malaysian parents in industrial Newcastle, Australia, these urban attributes have clearly had a big impact on their fashion designs. Describing their own work as "...somewhat culture-clashing with a certain dramatic appeal..." is a close-defined summary that says it all. Knots, broken heart shapes and wistful prints are some of the key flavours in their most recent collection, named Under the Blue gum, available in stores now. If this collection is anywhere near as charming as their Au Revoir collection, we know we're in for a real treat.

Hi Anonymous, You can buy their stuff at a few different places - for instance BLONDIES in Melbourne and VON TROSKA in Sydney. They also have their own boutique in New Castle. For further info, check out their web site.

The model looks like she's been beaten up & then dragged thru a hedge backwards - what are they doing to their staff!!!????

What language, Sprintst1...

Your lips were made for kissing, and not for such contempt.

Yeah the photography is awesome and so are the clothes... check out a shot from the Spring 2005 collection at http://www.camarilla.com.au/?p=4.

The label has been a huge hit and is strongly supported in Newcastle - it's by far Newcastle's biggest fashion export to date.
