SHOPSHOOT - Paper Couture

Last Friday was my day off and in between waiting for the builder and the carpenter and doing my grocery shopping, I found time to visit Paper Couture. Paper Couture is a lovely bespoke paper shop in Paddington, Sydney owned by Jo Neville.

I walked by the shop a few years ago and promised I would visit one day. I didn't think it would take me so long but seeing Jo's work featured in
Inside Out magazine last month reminded me of that promise.

Jo was in the shop and very kindly let me take photographs of her work. I have always loved book stores, stationery shops, flower shops, industrial antique shop and shops displaying beautiful soft leather goods.

Paper Couture nearly ticked all those boxes. Apart from paper, cards and ribbons, there were lots of sweet tags and ties, some papercuts and Jo's amazing clothes constructed of paper. I can see I'll be back!

Apart from the work displayed, the nicest thing about Paper Couture is Jo. Unfortunately Paper Couture doesn't have a website but you can find the shop at 284 South Dowling Street, Paddington (the St. Vincents' Hospital end).

I hope you enjoyed your peek in to Paper Couture.

Bye for now,


Edit 2016 - Paddington shop is now closed.
