OBJECT SHOP MAKER Q&A
What is your 'origin story'?! Where did it all start?
S.Rush Rainwear has been in the making since it's designer Susan Rush was studying millinery and working at Spotlight cutting fabric. During the rainy summer of 2011 she found a new use for clear tablecloth and set to work on a glitter rain hat design. In 2013 Susan spent her winter in the drizzle world capital of London interning with International Milliner Noel Stewart. It was here that the rain hat grew into a full accessory collection.
Describe the last thing you made?
I have just finished mixing a custom glitter hat. As it was for someone else we started with the basics then sent over email a long exchange of images tweaking the finer points of the mix, a dash of cosmic purple stars and dragon glitter to finish!
What part of the making process do you enjoy the most?
Choosing what glitter to order is an impossibly wonderful job so i guess my favourite bit is when it all arrives and I can start mixing concoctions.
Who should we be following on Instagram? Who are your favourite local makers?
What's next on the horizon for you?
The world. I'm hoping to travel outside broome a bit more in the future and see where that takes S.Rush!
