Courtesy of the Artist Loft is excited to be showcasing the brand-new collection La Dolce Doodad by Doodad and Fandango.
Doodad and Fandango is a pop art accessories label designed, fabricated and hand assembled by Nikita Majajas (aka Nikita Margarita) in Sydney, Australia.
La Dolce Doodad brings inspiration from Nikita’s Italian travels and bursting with love for the history and culture of Italy.
“I felt a connection to the Italian tradition of hand crafting objects, and was overwhelmed by the history and beauty in every corner. From the trompe l’oeil designs painted on the houses in Santa Margherita Ligure, to the medieval churches of Tuscany which made me gasp in awe, seeing Botticelli’s work up close and in the flesh, the kitsch and delightful multicoloured beach umbrellas and a spritz waiting for me in every bar, I was entranced!”
Produced in her home studio, Doodad and Fandango jewellery is designed to make a statement, breathe the energy of performance art and the passion of pop into wearable accessories, including colourful earrings and necklaces. Nikita is also very passionate about manufacturing locally and not having her work produced offshore.
On Friday 8th September from 10am – 5:30pm and Saturday 9th September from 10am – 4pm at Courtesy of the Artist Loft on level 4 of the Strand Arcade, you can meet Nikita, view and order pieces from the new collection and design your own Doppelgänger earrings!
We are also hosting a very special Doodad Doppelgänger High Tea on Saturday 9th September from 1pm – 4pm at Courtesy of the Artist Loft. You can RSVP to here.
