Catherine Martins’ Gatsby Inspired | Fabric Launch


Chuffed to be invited to celebrate the launch of  The Metropolis Range. Such a beautiful collection of fabrics and wallpapers…I swoon…




Academy Award winning production and costume designer Catherine Martin has applied her theatrical style to the Metropolis collection – a new range of fabrics and wallpapers in collaboration with Mokum. It is just like stepping inside the glamorous 1920’s. The Mokum showroom in Hawthorn was completely decked out with all things Gatsby. Panels of  Catherines’ wall papers, Deco inspired screens and all the sumptuous velvets in a myriad of chic smokey colours.




Martin’s second collection with Mokum, Metropolis captures not only the rich decorative nature of Art Deco but also its geometric modernism. The Metropolis textile collection includes two luxurious velvets: Velvet Splendour, a bold printed floral and Limelight Velvet, a tonal yet graphic jacquard. There is a return to embroidered linen, creating the exotic geometric Metropolis and two elegant trims: Charleston Pearls Ribbon and Metropolis Ribbon. This is complemented by the Charleston Pearls drapery, which was inspired by pearl strands, so very fashionable in the Deco period.




The emerald green floral wallpaper is stunning. It is called Splendour, in Colour Peacock. It also is available in a velvet. This fabric is just adorable. You simply must find somewhere to use this fabric. Here are a few other options from this amazing range




It was a really nice launch. Mokum went all out. Lot’s of designers and the like mingling, clinking champs glasses and oohing and ahhing over a stunning fabric and paper range. Oh and let’s not forget the huge table of cheeses….Almost worth it just for that.
