Inside the Couturier’s Studio

30 Jul

It’s not often you get to peek inside a couturier’s studio this side of Paris but with Mathieu Salem opening his latest boutique here’s the chance to do just that. He recently cut the literal red ribbon on his new creative space filled with beading, silk, lace and gown destined for the big occasions in life. Lillian Frank, Rhonda Burchmore, Tottie Goldsmith and Helen Kapalos all turned out to celebrate with the designer.

Read more about the opening at Simply Black & White, Rosanna Faraci and StyleMelbourne. You can find Mathieu Salem’s new studio at 1166 High Street, Armadale, call for a appointment on 03 9576 1212.
