Every stitch, thread and appliqué crafted meticulously onto garments
I have always had a love for clothing, style and the arts and decided to pursue this passion in my thirties. I quit my job, much to my family’s horror and applied for a positon to study fashion at the Canberra Institute of Technology. I was accepted and completed a Bachelor of Design (Fashion Design).
My Inspiration is drawn from the old world charm and designs of the early twentieth century. The clothing of this by-gone era was graceful, had exquisite attention to detail and decoration was applied using large and small tucks, hem ruffles, buttons and lace inserts.
My garments are bespoke pieces that are designed and custom made by me. I use high quality fabrics, applique creating mesmerising embellishments, and texture to give my garments a modern twist.
I offer timeless pieces which can be worn over many seasons. I always take comfort into account, colour and durability of fabric, so my garments will last for years. My pieces are an investment; there is a lot of love
as well as skill that goes into making them. Good design has to be aesthetically pleasing combined with exceptional craftsmanship.
When I am not working as a fashion designer, I love oil painting, sketching and using my computer to design images. I especially love nature and everything that shows colour. I take my own photos and edit them and change them to make the colours speak to me – then I paint the image onto canvas.
