UNIQUE DESIGN FEATURING AUSTRALIA, INCLUDING TASMANIA, ON SHOW IN LONDON

 

Peter Brohier, a Melbourne lawyer, said today:

 

A T shirt and thong or G string set featuring Australia, including Tasmania, has been selected for display at the Design Museum, London.

 

The set will be part of the Conran Foundation Collection which will be showing for about thee months, commencing on the 15th January 2004. The Collection features designs 'conceived with ingenuity' from across the world.

 

The design features a fitted T shirt covered with a detailed map of Australia from front to back with a matching map of Tasmania on the front of the G string or thong.

 

The map was drawn principally by hand by the designer�s father, Edgar Brohier, using little more than a pen, ink and a ruler. Edgar Brohier died just after completing the map in 1966. The map was updated by other means in 1996 by AUSLIG, Australia�s survey and mapping agency.�

 

Peter Brohier, the designer, is a Melbourne lawyer and the man behind the Australian Government's multi millions of dollars of on-going support for Bass Strait sea travel. A vastly improved ferry access for people and vehicles between Mainland Australia and Tasmania has resulted, described as 'changing Tasmania forever'.

 

The T and G set, and other unique map related products, can be purchased through www.maptag.com.au. The set is priced at A$50. Separately, the thong A$15 and A$35 for the T shirt.'

TESTIMONIALS:

Hi Peter,

It was lovely to chat with you the other day, As I said when I wore my Black T-shirt recently on vacation in Port Douglas, I was stopped by so many Traders, and visiting Tourists from Europe, USA, New Zealand... but also many Australians.

I could have sold MY t-shirt, one hundred times over, and everyone was amazed with the fine detail. My next purchase will be a white one and also a sarong. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to meeting you again at The Melbourne '82 Club Ionians when you will be guest speaker.

I last emailed you regarding trying to obtain your famous "T & G" set. Due to us not having a free trade agreement, I was unable too. However, what I did not know, is that when I sent the first email, my friend there in Tas.. had called you, and it was already on its way. I had the T on at the beach recently, and WOW! What a conversation starter!

Who would have thought... and then when I said it had a matching G... hmmm, some conversation, I must tell you!

Thanks to him, my friend, and you....

I admire her creativity and her initiative to make a CD! We think she's gorgeous!! Everybody that walks into my house has the pleasure of experiencing the little Fairy Song!!
I took a gamble on buying it...and I'm very glad I did!
