A note from our Creative Director, Georgia Danos.

As we all know, the end of 2019 and start of 2020 has been marred by horrific bushfires which have engulfed so much of our beautiful country. The devastation to our land, wildlife, fauna, homes and lives has been catastrophic. There are too many sad, sad stories that we’ve read, seen or heard and it is truly heartbreaking. Yet at the same time it has been inspirational to see how our local and global communities have come together to show their tremendous support in so many ways.

As an organisation, we have contributed financially to the relief fund and also implemented a dollar for dollar price match to our staff members generous donations Sadly, we know from the experience of the Christchurch Earthquakes in 2010 and 2011, that the rebuild and restoration process is a marathon task that cannot be underestimated. JRF pledges to lend assistance when the time comes, especially in our capacity to help with the rebuilding process.

We approach 2020 with a sense of purpose, a clarity of what is important and as ever, a commitment to provide our clients and partners with the very best of service and solutions. We look forward to introducing you to new brands, opening new showrooms, celebrating special events and collaborations, and joining you in happy times in only good health.

Very best,

GD x
