If you're a Tim Burton fan like the corner shop team, you'll be planning a way to make it down to Melbourne for the Winter Masterpieces 2010: Tim Burton exhibition. Having just closed at New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMa), the exhibit is currently making its way to Melbourne and will be on display from June 24th to October 10th at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image.
The exhibition will bring together over 700 examples of rarely or never-before-seen drawings, paintings, photographs, storyboards, moving-image works, puppets, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera, and includes an extensive film series spanning his 27-year career.
We can't wait!

Born in Houston, Texas, Shelley Duvall is an iconic American beauty. Starting her career in the 70's, she went on to star in movies such as Kubrick's The Shining, Woody Allen's Annie Hall and Robert Altman's 3 Women.
While she has since disappeared from the industry, Shelley's originality and doe-eyed looks make her one of our favourite style inspirations.
This week, we are thrilled to get our hands on the latest from Australian label Bassike. Designed exclusively for the corner shop, the range features a beautiful Galah print inspired by the iconic Australian bird.

It's been an amazing/busy/overwhelming week for the team at the corner shop. Amongst the champagne, fashionably late starts and mile-high wedge booties, we were blown away yet again by the talent of our local designers.
Here are a few snaps we took during the week, from behind the scenes to the after parties.
