Hurrah! Kluster's favourite new online accessories store, Final Episode launched yesterday. As the newest store on the Sydney-meets-world block, Final Episode features selections from established international labels Camilla Skovgaard, Opening Ceremony and Tristan Blair as well as Kluster's favourite emerging Sydney designer duo, Strummer. We love the fact that Final Episode prides itself on stocking cutting-edge and innovative designs and that the wares sold there span fashion, design and art.
Not one to restrict herself to single-focus projects the brains behind FE, Seema Duggal – who is also founder and editor of Side Street Sydney - offers customers published art with purchase, in the form of an exclusive concept zine.
To celebrate the launch, Final Episode is hosting a party at aMBUSH Gallery this Thursday night at 6pm. Works by high-profile Aussie artists Ben Frost, Jonathan Zawada, Lyn & Tony and Canvas Group will be on display on the night.
aMBUSH Gallery is at 4 James Street, Waterloo, Sydney. To attend, simply RSVP via the Facebook page.

Sydney designer, Josh Goot is opening an AW pop-up sale shop on Oxford Street, for four days only folks. Out on racks will be layer upon layer of Josh’s signature pieces, all drawn from the label’s archives. We’re particularly looking forward to eyeballing the Annie and Jonathan Zawada’s interior; Josh tells us the couple are responsible for creating the project identity.

Dosh's, Wallets As Art takes the humble money-holding device out of the back pocket and into the realm of creativity. The collaboration – featuring designs by Jonathan Zawada, Kill Pixie, French and Stefan Marx is the brainchild of Blue Sky Designers, Mark and Henri.
The kids at Dosh are really into the whole, ‘new year, new wallet’ idea. Seeing as we just started a new year we thought it fitting that we offer you the chance to win a new wallet. Synchronicity, you see?
We are giving away one limited edition Zawada (top) and one limited edition Marx (bottom) wallet to two lucky new subscribers, so get subscribing.
To be in the running simply follow the instructions below. Already a Kluster subscriber? No problem, just convince a friend to let you subscribe them too (include their name and email address in the body of the email).

When Monster Children and Asahi say they are going to put together a group showing there is none of that let’s-pull-Jo-Public-in-from-Sydney’s-COFA-to-fill-the-last-spot mentality. Nosireebob (no offence to COFA students intended – we are certain you have a very bright artistic future).
They venture out into the creative wilds of Australia, Canada, Germany and the US and come back with Jonathan Zawada, Alex Kopps, Stefan Marx, Luca Ionescu and Beci Orpin, ready to create.
In the resulting collection, Roku (six in Japanese), each artist has produced four works motivated by Japanese culture. Six fours are 24, and that’s how many works there will be on display. Add to that a collection of six “exclusive limited-edition” frosted Asahi glasses and you have 32 works. A noble number.
The exhibition opens at 6pm on Thursday 14th May at Monster Children Gallery.
Sydney: May 15 – 30
Melbourne: June 19 – July 4.
