You have to hand it to Homejob and Kaomoji, two Brisbane-based creative businesses. If there's one thing they know, it's how to launch their new collections in style. Of course, the duo behind the labels — Wendy Ma, who makes Kaomoji's bits and pieces, and Emika Kazama, her partner in Homejob's sustainable wares — know plenty of other things, such as how to craft artistic ceramics and fashion ethically made artisan objects, accessories and garments. But, throwing a party at the Institute of Modern Art to celebrate the release of their latest ranges is inspired.
At IMA Gallery Shop After Hours: Homejob X Kaomoji from 6pm on June 23, seeing the fruits of their artistic labour is an occasion worth celebrating. It is an unveiling after all. There'll also be free sparkling wine, and plenty of dancing thanks to the Buff Girls hitting the decks.
And, if you want to purchase one of their items, that'll be met with a smile.
