Redkite Breatless Fashion Parade Perth

2012-04-20T20:22:49.291-07:00

Two of my Designer Ties auctioned for $1,500 at the Redkite Breathless Fashion Parade. I did the Catwalk thing for the first time and had a bit of fun prancing around with all the beautiful models. But the real joy was receiving a letter of thanks from the Redkite team, the rewards of generosity cannot be measured.

Collaborative Networking for Mutual Benefit In Business

2011-11-03T06:09:49.649-07:00

80% of businesses do not network. They contain them selves inside their offices, shops, homes and schools and rely on traditional forms of marketing. Meanwhile their is a whole other world of opportunities to be tapped.Social media is the buzz word in communication and electronic networking and fast becoming the norm in all businesses. Dispelling this form of communication as a flash in the pan or passing trend will only display an inability to accept change, similar to closing the doors to your shop because you don’t want to deal with demanding customers. Online shopping took the traditionalists by surprise. The smart ones embraced ecommerce and quickly integrated with traditional high street shopping to capture larger audiences. It proved a worthwhile exercise for the balance sheet. And cash flow, less effort for greater return, low overheads, quick turn around and real time market research via google analytics.In spite of new trends property developers are still investing in bricks and mortar, new shopping malls are sprouting up and make overs of old strip shopping are all driven by demand? People have not abandoned good old fashioned shopping therapy, browsing their Saturdays away, touching and feeling, or just window shopping, there is and always will be the kindling of romance associated with tradition, not quite the same as sitting in from of a computer screen. So we can buy and sell and communicate via social media, ecommerce, or trudge the high street stores. But there is one more way of communicating and selling, no google, facebook, twitter online shopping, or trudging shop floors. It’s an age old form of communicating called networking, face to face. This is where you are totally exposed, no telephone, no computer screen, no secretary filtering calls, all the barriers are stripped away. There is just you and the rest of them, the playing field is levelled and you sit across the table from one another eye ball to eye ball. All of your fears about communicating, failing, public speaking are confronted, there is nowhere to hide, it’s an exhilarating experience, one that you will become addicted too and also rely on as a major channel for business development done the human way.If you ever doubt the positive effects or longevity of networking then just think of the Commonwealth. This unique concept is in effect an international network that bonds more than fifty countries together and they just had a three day network event in Perth Western Australia.A little historyAfter the end of the First World War, the Dominions began seeking a new constitutional definition and reshaping their relationship with Britain. At the Imperial Conference in 1926, the prime ministers of the participating countries adopted the Balfour Report which defined the Dominions as autonomous communities within the British Empire, equal in status, in no way subordinate to one another in any aspect of their domestic or external affairs, though united by common allegiance to the Crown, and freely associated as members of the British Commonwealth of Nations.This definition was incorporated into British law in 1931 as the Statute of Westminster. It was adopted immediately in Canada, the Irish Free State, Newfoundland (which joined Canada in 1949) and South Africa. Australia and New Zealand followed. India, Britain's largest colony at the time, became a Dominion at independence in 1947 and remained so until January 1950, when the Indian Republic was born.“The Commonwealth bears no resemblance to the empires of the past. It is an entirely new conception built on the highest qualities of the spirit of man: friendship, loyalty, and the desire for freedom and peace."None of this could have been achieved electronically or remotely, in the form of maintaining constant communications yes, most definitely, but nothing will replace face to face communications. It is easy to be confrontational, acusational over the p[...]



Australian Silk Tie Designs

2011-10-29T17:37:23.786-07:00

(image)
Without being whimsical or touristy our objective is to capture elements of Australian colours, wildlife and cultural heritage. We’ve been very topical, focusing on subtle renditions of both natural and the built environment; can you see the Sydney Opera House? This is just the beginning of new collaborative adventure for Patrick McMurray and Kelsey Marshal, Kelsey is based in Fremantle and Patrick in Perth. I am using face to face networking to add another dimension to retail, so now I have the four tiers covered, traditional retail, ecommerce, social media and business networking/total relationship marketing via Wiifm Consultancy, another Western Australian innovation.



The Australia Collection Of Tie Designs

2011-10-29T17:18:52.100-07:00

(image)
Australia’s cultural heritage is based on the cultural heritage of its immigrants. Geographical location also influences this isolated island. Australians have a unique affinity with their Asian neighbors, so naturally the oriental influence is evident in art and fashion, particularly in this “The Australia Collection of Textile Designs by Kelsey Marshal and Patrick McMurray, soon to be released in a new series of silk ties. And through a unique business network platform will be released to the world. We have captured fine art as never before.

Another Opium Silk Tie Colour

2010-09-23T06:02:35.426-07:00

(image)
The floral pattern, the subtle texture and exotic handle of weave is beyond compare, in essence non addictive, but I am compelled to experiment with colours, and the latest variations are my absolute favourites. I wear them to every network function and attract attention from all the ladies, and so I stand alone and an audience gathers, then it’s easy to describe my kind of business; with a fine example always on display; the addictive opium silk tie.



Square Flowers Silk Tie A Touch Of Pink

2010-09-23T05:47:26.761-07:00

Launched in August 2010 in three colours with matching cufflinks and lapel badges, this is a completely new concept in men’s fashion accessories. And here the square flowers silk tie with a touch of pink

And still to come, designs by Sculptor Miik Green for Patrick McMurray; “The Blue Print Architectural Series” created specifically for Architects and Engineers, to be released in November 2010.



Paisley

2010-07-10T05:36:52.460-07:00

(image)
No collection is complete without a couple of Paisley silk ties. We sifted through many hundreds of archives stemming back many decades and finally selected something that had the right colour, pattern and texture combinations. Depending on the warp and weft, the background and fore ground dominate alternatively as you turn the tie into the light. An array of different colours emanate from the paisley patterns, this is caused by the way satin silk is floated to the surface during weaving processes.



Classic Oriental Floral Silk Tie

2010-07-07T14:47:17.976-07:00

(image)
Time for a change: This tie has been our most popular style for more than two years, and only now have we introduced a new colour, “when you’re on a good thing stick to it” Out of this came an entire Oriental collection, with three new designs in the process of manufacture and available in late July 2010. Now we look to the East for inspiration.



Gothic Silk Tie

2010-07-07T01:54:17.896-07:00

(image)
It’s like Paul Smith once quoted: “inspiration can come from anywhere at anytime” The Gothic era has always been fertile ground for inspiration, sinister, mysterious, and gaudy intricate. The medieval art movement developed in France out of Romanesque art in the mid 12th century. So time poses no barriers to inspiration. Our take on Goth is now found in a newly coloured silk tie.



Autumn Bell Rose Silk Tie

2010-07-07T01:40:57.596-07:00

(image)
The Autumn Bell Rose silk tie was first released in 2008. We maintained the same colour for two years, but recently decided to introduce something new, more versatile and less seasonal. Magenta, cobalt, black, silver, royal and sky blue, aqua and purple, the chosen colours compliment each other beautifully and will go with any outfit you choose to wear.

Floral Butterflies On Satin Silk

2010-04-25T04:35:45.627-07:00

(image)
Playful, colourful and cheerful; The butterfly form is constructed of miniature woven flowers; this tie is suitable for wearing by ladies too. The silk was woven to order in China, shipped to our tie maker in England and then distributed to Luxury fashion Boutiques in Australia and sold online to customers throughout the world, so we have created a modern day silk route.



Floral Silk Tie From The Orient

2011-11-11T17:29:19.975-08:00

(image)

Gothic Influence

2011-11-11T17:28:13.593-08:00

(image)
Inspiration can come from anywhere at any time. After consulting many hundreds of archived textile designs, this one seemed to make the strongest statement to our end of representing a hint of the gothic era. But then again it could also be classified as art deco, what ever, this silk tie has such great appeal.Perth Networking at Wiifm



Opium Silk Tie

2011-11-11T17:27:11.788-08:00

(image)
Capturing exotic floral essences on silk woven to our specific design requirements, the mystery of the orient, the ancient silk route, the rise and fall of nations: Sericulture or silk production in China has a long and colorful history unknown to most people. For centuries the West knew very little about silk and the people who made it. It was the most zealously guarded secret in history. When silk was first discovered, it was reserved exclusively for the use of the ruler. It was permitted only to the emperor, his close relations and the very highest of his dignitaries. Within the palace, the emperor is believed to have worn a robe of white silk; outside, he, his principal wife, and the heir to the throne wore yellow, the color of the earth.
