What do you get when crafty ladies Rachel Burke and Holly Leonardson team up? A whole lot of colourful goodness.

Rachel Burke is many things: a stylist, a crafter, an author and a serious lover of tinsel. She’s also prone to collaborating with excellent people – like Holly Leonardson, who wears several hats herself (said hats include visual artist, jeweller and sticker fiend). The two Queensland-based ladies recently teamed up to create Tinsel Town, an exhibition of Rachel’s trademark tinsel jackets (made from upcycled and salvaged jacket bases), photographed and re-contextualised by Holly. Sadly, the one-night-only exhibition has already passed us by, but the images live on, thanks to the internet. Scroll down to check out a mere handful – head this way for the rest.
