Amy Farrell :: THE FASHION FUTURIST at TOP FLOOR!

One of the things we love about working in the Chippendale Creative Precinct is getting to know and work with other local businesses and creatives. We recently had the fantastic Ms Amy Farrell book the TOP FLOOR at WELLINGTON studio for a corporate photoshoot, and we think the pictures are incredible!

Ms Amy Farrell aka THE FASHION FUTURIST has been working for sixteen years as a photographer, and also as a consultant in the fashion industry - specialising in apparel and accessories such as Samantha Wills, Metalicus, SeduceYarra Trail, Marco Polo and Ping Pong. She has also worked with leading wholesale fashion agencies, major department stores as well as independent retailers.

Outside of being an all round amazing fashion mentor, consultant and lecturer at FBI Fashion College, Amy is our neighbour and part of the Chippendale family!

TOP FLOOR at WELLINGTON turns 1!!!

It's been a year since TOP FLOOR at WELLINGTON got off the ground (so to speak...). We can't quite believe how quickly the year has gone and how much fun it has been. When we first started TOP FLOOR at WELLINGTON, we did so on the back of quitting our day jobs, and (happily!) our PhD's. 

We always loved Chippendale's creative precinct, and for a long time have been part of this community as artists. But we wanted to leave the close confines of academia, and be more involved locally, working with like-minded creatives. Through opening TOP FLOOR at WELLINGTON, we have have been excited to meet the diverse range of people who've fallen in love with our unique warehouse space. We've been able to watch our small business grow with our clients' needs; to fit the uses of photographers, film makers, sound artists, fashion labels, political start-ups, corporate development, offsite meetings and workshops. We're pretty proud of what we've accomplished, and thrilled with the nice people we've met.

One of the things that we didn't anticipate when starting TOP FLOOR at WELLINGTON was the support that we would get from local businesses. There are a lot of people like us, who are growing a small business and engaging in the local community. And to that end we would like to do a big thank you to; Rye Resort, GET UP, Brickfields, Greenpeace, Ms Amy Farrell, Wellington Street Projects, Scouts Honour, Acting World, Jackie Mostek, Electrofringe, Shannon Malone Fashion, Harriet Body, Crossing Threads, g.nancy, Houzz Australia, Sydney Biennale, and everyone else in between.

2017 is shaping up to be another great year, the warehouse is looking as beautiful as ever, the view is still breathtaking, and our clients think so too. We are looking forward to working with you all again, and hope the festive season doesn't leave too many sore heads.

 Have a great holiday period!  

With love from Deb, Emily, & Dora

TOP FLOOR at WELLINGTON gets a rescue cat!

Dora Carrington

You might have already met the TOP FLOOR warehouse cat, her name is DORA CARRINGTON (and yes, that's after the amazing English painter, thank-you for asking...) and she is a rescue cat that has become part of the TOP FLOOR family. She is from the Cat Protection Society who were wonderful people and loved Dora nearly as much as us. 

Dora Carrington loves the natural light of our warehouse studio space and has managed to sneak into a few photography shoots (only when welcomed of course!). She's settling in very well and mostly likes to eat and sleep. 

Her favourite hobby is to wander out onto the roof. We were told that before TOP FLOOR, she had never been outside, so we imagine that on the rooftop looking at the spectacular view, she is the closest she has been to her primal animal self. 

She will probably like you more than she likes us.
