  • Maternity Leave and Photoshoot

    2020 has been full of big changes and exciting milestones in my personal life – my partner and I will be welcoming our first baby into our lives in the next few days. We celebrated our impending arrival at 38 weeks (nearly 4 weeks ago now) with a special photoshoot in Wellington with Yvonne Liew. I made myself a maternity gown out of a delicious black floral brocade and made it to fit over a maternity corset that I made for myself during my pregnancy.

  • Melbourne Alternative Designers Fashion Showcase 2017

    We had an amazing time and were thrilled to meet many of you at the 2017 MAD Fashion Showcase held at the beautiful St Kilda Town Hall.

    The showcase featured an array of talented independent designers from Melbourne and across Australia, and we were so happy to bring our collection to Melbournians to see and try on in person. The MAD Fashion Showcase delivered an extravagant offering of some of Australia’s talented and innovative fashion designers, daring performances, and varied, entertaining runway sequences. It is always wonderful to see the individuality of the designer shine through in their creations.
