And after so long, a preview of our brand new artwork ‘Devils At Dusk’ created in collaboration with Made590!
Inspired by Christina from Made590’s vision of capturing the great Australian dusk, Me & Oli have created an artwork that celebrates the depth and richness of Australian flora and fauna at dusk- our favourite time of day when all things are imbued with the delicious warm hues of sunset.
This artwork is a textile yardage print to be featured over a number of delicious base cloths & oh-so-pretty garments from Made 590… & perhaps a limited edition range of something or other from Me & Oli… more to be revealed in the New Year!
If you are in Sydney, join us TONIGHT 6-8PM for the Me & Oli Open Night at our Pop Up shop at Gaffa! Off-the-rack goods & Made-To-Measure service are all available & it is sure to be a fun filled eve of art, fashion & drinks ($2 at the bar) as we will be showing our work alongside a bunch of incredible photographic exhibitions opening as a part of Head On Photo Festival. Can’t Wait!
& if you’re around today, we are opened all day, drawing away… so pop in & say hello! We are only opened for a few more days!

Thanks to our good friend Clara and the residence of ‘Flodge’ who generously opened up their inner sydney home for us, we recently hosted a Me & Oli Open Night for a small group of friends.
Champagne was flowing as were delicious finger food from our talented friends, Clara, Sab & Sam, who also happen to be brilliant cooks. This gorgeous inner city home was the perfect canvas & we have everyone in the home to thank for helping in the setup of the Open Night, including our friend Jon who helped make everything look even prettier than we imagined.
Thanks also to our ever helpful friend, Luisa Bustos, whose benevolence through all our main events floors us every time, the night was a fun filled fare full of Me & Oli goodies from custom made service to off-the-rack offers.
The Open Night was so special that we cannot wait to plan another with the aim of the next one being open to a wider audience… including ALL friends of Me & Oli!! We shall definitely keep you posted!

& we are back after a crazy time at the sydney finders keepers ss ’11!
thank you so much for those who took the time out in the wonder filled markets to visit us!
for those who didn’t make it, we thought we would share some pics of our stall which we were so happy with- thanks to the incredible work of our very clever friends!! (sorry the pics aren’t the best, we had to steal quiet moments so were a little rushed!)
as we really wanted to reflect the custom-made concept of our online store, we had a section of our stall where you could choose a me & oli print, match it to one of the shapes on the sample rack & we measured you up & started the process of custom making the garment! we felt like this went most smoothly & were really blown away to find so many embracing the concept & really taking part in our interactive stall!
of course, we didn’t forget we were in a market environment so had got fun things made up just for the occasion- like illustrated & digitally printed scarves, tees, tanks, totes & chrissy cards.
for lovers out there who didn’t make it to the market, rest assured we have put some of these ‘off the rack’ products aside for you. so stay tuned as we start posting up lots of these goodies this week… starting from today (just in time for your chrissy shopping!)
& the day is almost upon us!! for sydneysiders, do not miss the sydney finders keepers markets tomorrow night & saturday all day… it is going to be incredible (& perfect timing too as it’s the place where you will be able to do all your chrissy shopping in one hit!)
do pop by our stall in the fashion room where you will not only be able to get your hands on all sorts of wears (digitally printed tote bags, scarves, tanks, tops & dresses) but you will be able to also view our range of digitally printed textile artwork & our range of easy-to-wear shapes… pick a combination, get measured up & we will start the process of lovingly making your outfit TO ORDER!! yay!!
check out our finders keepers count down on our facebook page for some of the products that will be on offer at our stall.
hope to see you tomorrow!

there is something new coming to the me & oli shop. Think Tanks!
we are busy designing new artwork & we just can’t wait to show you.
first up in the series, this here is The Senate. we shall keep you posted on when you can get your paws on these!
We just visited the incredible Flinders Ranges where majestic mountain ranges meet vast flat plains. Where the earth is a crackling red, the road stretches endlessly into the hazy distance & where emus & brown snakes wait to cross the road. We took our Thelma top on the trip with us & thought we’d share with you some pics from the holiday album. If you’d like to take your own Thelma top on a trip (away or just out on a day/night), you can find her here. made to order & in your print of choice from the me & oli library!
as we draw towards warmer weather in this part of the world, we thought we’d send a little reminder for those of you out there who are sydney siders: don’t forget to visit the Follow Store where some special me & oli pieces can be found, ready to roll for summer!
of course, while you’re there, get lost in the gorgeousness that is the shop & all the wonderful treats that can be found in this gem of a store.
if you’re not in sydney, these pieces pictured can also be custom made just for you… in all other varieties of illustrated prints. simply click the links below & toggle through the ‘prints’ (by clicking the ‘change print’ tab) to find the artwork that most tickles your fancy!

yay! we found out earlier in the week that we got accepted into the Sydney Finders Keepers markets (dec 2-3)! so very excited!
for those of you abroad, the Finders Keepers are incredible design & art markets that are dedicated to supporting emerging designers & artists in Australia. their markets are always jam packed with amazing works, live music, art installations… and is always a real feast for the senses. check out their flyer above (illustrated by the very talented beth emily) just to get a taste for their flavour.
for those of you in sydney… come & join in on the fun! we can’t wait to see you!
it has been a few years now since we had our first stall at the finders keepers. & what amazing opportunities came from it: editorial, textile design work for prominent australian labels.
so we have to say, we are so excited to get started on the design of our stall: think interactive, think tailor shop, think getting measured up at our stall for your very own custom made me & oli dress! all that & a whole bunch of new me & oli products just in time for summer! yay!
we shall keep you posted with the blue print.
we thought it would be fun to start a section on our blog called ‘me & oli’s day out’ where we feature a favourite piece from our collection alongside favourite pieces in… well, our wardrobe! a good excuse to play dress-ups!
this first post features:
– loose, panelled jacket from one of our long time favourite sydney stores (despite the daggy name): Sydney97 in world square
– (of course, we never leave home without our) Deer Head necklace from our good friends at Mafia. we actually have one left in stock. feel free to email us if you love this Deer Head as much as we do!
