Ann Tonks: "We love your work!"

Ann Tonks:

Here's me wearing one of your beautiful outfits at the launch of my book The A to Z of Arts Management 

The book was launched at the Tonks Bar in the Southbank Theatre. The bar which is named after me in recognition of my work as Managing Director of Melbourne Theatre Company for many years.

I bought my first Smooth piece from the Paddington Markets when I was working for the ABC in the late 1980s on trips to Sydney. I’ve also bought from your QVB and Richmond stores.

My sister Susan recently bought from your Howey Place store in Melbourne.

We love your work!
