Fashfest 2016

Well Fashfest has been and gone.  It was a wonderful experience.  The models looked fantastic.  It was quite an experience to walk onto the runway as a designer.  The show looked fabulous.  I received a lot of fantastic comments during the break between the shows.  And several of the pieces have sold.  It was really great to have the support of another designer Elle Hopgood and my friend Flora Elliott.

What a fantastic night.



Getting ready for Fashfest

It has been exciting and nerve racking getting ready for Fashfest 2106.  I’m part of Cooma Fashionation –  three designers from the Monaro area – Elle Hopgood,  Charly Thorn and I.  The only pity is that it appears as if the label is Cooma Fashionation and our names as designers only appear when you go further into their site under Cooma Fashionation.  However, I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to show my work.  I created a range for pieces  so that I could then decide which ones to use.  On Monday we had a photo shoot with Gordon taking the photos of my friend Chrissy modelling my work.

I really enjoyed creating my vest cum scarf
