When I was 21 years old, I was about to begin my honors in psychology. I only had a very light work load for the first semester so with some encouragement from my parents, I made a range of 12 dresses and took them to stores in Sydney and Melbourne to sell. I had no prior knowledge of the industry or any contacts. The range was well recieved and after the second season, I was also selling in other states throughout Austtalia. The clothes were often picked up for press and I had a loyal following. Due to a few factors, mainly cost of production in Australia and small retail stores closing down, I had to wind down the business. I was completely unsure of the path to take next as I was not normally trained in fashion. After much back and forth I decided to study Interior Design at RMIT university in Melbourne, Australia.
Once I graduated I moved straight to NYC with my husband Marcus. I began working for Homepolish pretty soon after we arrived and have been there since. I do a little private work on the side too. Below are some images of my own Columbus Circle Apartment that I recently completed, compared with some images from my clothing label.
