The Compound Crew

Everyone is talking about The Compound.  The warehouse wedged between White Rabbit Gallery and Serial Space in Chippendale is the love child of Trent Power and his fiancée Jessica French.  It’s a refuge for inner city creatives and bustling with activity.   Previously Power & French’s residence, which opened once a year for the most incredible parties! The Compound has been transformed into a creative hub with Film maker Gracie Otto and teepee designer, Povel Torudd amongst a host of talented others.

    The dress is her own creation – she’s a very talented costume designer.

    Fun! Reminds me of the 70s London Pheasantry and of course the Yellow House. Thank you for sharing, good to see what the next generation of creatives are up to. Inspiring.
