The media is awash with the news of offshore investments Panama Gate, resignations of Iceland’s Prime Minister, but something that caught my attention was an article in the guardian on sweat shops in Myanmar.

All this talk of Offshoring got me thinking about Onshoring.  Since 2009 Harlette have been practitioners of Onshoring, beginning with designing & manufacturing in Australia.

This is an example of Australian Design and Manufacturing recently on Catwalk in Caribbean on the island of Curacao as part of International Swim Fashion Week.

Happy Valentines

Posted in Diamonds, Love, Relationships, Space Travel, Twitter, Uncategorized, Writing with tags , , on February 14, 2016 by harlette


This year, as you eat your chocolates, nibble on strawberries and take time out to smell the roses. Have you thought about who spread the idea of celebrating “Love” on 14th of February?


According to Chaucer and the Cult of St Valentine, there is much debate and speculation around when St Valentine stepped into the limelight to become love’s IT Guy and why 14th of February was the day to celebrate Love.

According to a quick whip around the online bible aka Google. The day first became associated with romantic love within the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.


The first recorded association of Valentine’s Day with romantic love is in Parlement of Foules (1382) by Geoffrey Chaucer.[24] Chaucer wrote:

For this was on seynt Volantynys day
Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make.

[“For this was on St. Valentine’s Day, when every bird cometh there to choose his mate.”]

Now it gets interesting reading into the pages of Chaucer and the Cult of St Valentine, three other people were writing on this topic of Love around 14th & 15th Century and it took time for these ideas to spread. Savoyard Oton de Grandson, John Gower and Valencian Pardo.


These days we have an idea around the planet in 2 secs with the wonder and magic of #hashtags, YouTube, twitter & Facebook. Ideas circle around the planet in 140 words or less thanks to everyone that retweets & likes. Back in the 14th century ideas had to walk, they had to talk, take horseback, take boats, mature, mellow and then get dipped in ink.

Just think about how quickly everyone was Twerking, Planking, and all the other things that Twitter and Facebook have taught us over the years.

The fact that we celebrate love today is a miracle when you think about it, and I wonder exactly what our generation will get to share with future generations?

My vote is with #spacerocks


This was the #quote of the week

Sex in outer space. “While NASA officials don’t categorically state that there has never been any sexual activity in space, they have consistently drawn a veil over public discussion of such questions.” According to NASA spokesman, John Ira Petty, “We consider all aspects of long-duration space flight. Obviously there are various psychological stresses (that crews would have to face), but in terms of experiments in sex in space, that’s just not on the agenda” (reported by MSNBC TV, February 24, 2000).

Harlette will be releasing limited edition silk & metallic kimono’s made with different limited edition fabrics, there are only 3 or 4 in each fabric so these will be collectors editions.  Keep an eye out as these fabrics are deliciously luxurious with their metallics and matching Swarovski buttons. There also is one amazing detail still to be revealed that makes these kimono’s truly limited edition.

Speaking of Swarovski in the 2011 reviews Lingerie Talk had this to say about Harlette in their article called Silk Lace and Swarovski lingerie labels laid on the bling in 2011
